Happy New Year and welcome to my blog. This is not my first attempt at blogging, but this year, I really want to make more of a habit of it. By habit, I mean at least once a week. One of the greatest challenges I've had in preparing to blog is "what should I title my weblog?" I finally settled on "As I was Saying...." This is a phrase I find myself employing on a regular basis, mainly because of my attempt at multi-threaded conversations.
When it comes to conversations, I have a tendency to stray off topic. It is partly a blend of my ADD and my general love of knowledge. As I am talking on one subject, I'll say or think "that reminds me of...." At this point, I will stray to a totally different tangent on an entirely different subject. Don't begin to think that the first tangent is isolated. It is likely that I will stray again and split off a second, third, or fourth time. However, my gift lies in that I typically close each thread before the end of the conversation. As I reverse through the tangents, I will remember the path that took me down each rambling and come back to sufficiently close that topic of conversation until I finally end at the original subject.
As it relates to this weblog, I want to have some general areas of focus: technology, theology (matters of faith), philology (general love of knowledge), and efficiency (i.e. life-hackology). Notwithstanding, tangents are allowed. However, you can be certain that "As I was Saying...." will eventually resolve to one of these main foci.
