Well, I've finally taken my first "leap" into the great unknown of blogging. Like many of you, I've been thinking about doing this for quite some time now. Some of my thoughts going into this project:
"So much to say, so much of it seemingly random"
"Will anyone read this?"
"Do I want anyone to read this?"
"Will anyone care?", etc.
The most important thing for me will be to keep this interesting, relevant, hopefully useful, and not get me fired. I'll do my best not to embarrass anyone, especially myself.
By now you may be asking yourself, "What the heck is this blog about?" That is a bit of a difficult question. I've been in the telecommunications business for over 17 years in one form or another. Like all technical businesses, there's been an enormous amount of change in that short time. Many people I've worked with over the years have tried this business and then moved onto greener pastures; the industry has consolidated and many companies have gone out of business as well. I've survived by trying to stay on the cutting edge and doing (what I think anyway) as fun.
In this blog I will share some of my experiences through rural America and some insights along the way. Why am I in rural America? This is something I will gladly share with you one I've had a conversation with my company's legal department. Don't get me wrong, they're a swell bunch of folks, but keeping my job is a little more important than keeping a blog - no offense.
In the meantime, thanks for being here and reading this. I will always welcome your comments both positive and otherwise. Here's to an enjoyable experience for both of us!
