Mission Statement

My education and background are in Business. Due to this fact I think every new project should have a mission statement, whether spoken or implied, every endeavor should have a reason for its existence, a purpose for being.

I’m starting this blog to give my thoughts a home; a place that they can go and dwell instead of just dying in my head. My blog’s second purpose is to give my thoughts audience – if they are so deserving. I don’t know if my thoughts are of value, or completely worthless. I figure the only way to find out is to see if they gain a following. My third purpose in committing this act of self-indulgence is because over the past year I have enjoyed the thoughts of others. I like reading other blogs and enjoy seeing others’ thoughts. I thought it only fair to give back to the intertwining net of bandwidth.

I’ve never been good at keeping a journal, so I make no promises. This might be as successful of a project as the engine swap I attempted when I was 15 – and finished when I was 19.

So here it is; my offering to the insatiable beast, The Internet. Don’t be too cruel.


  1. This is some good reading. Good luck to you; I wish I had the motivation/dedication to do something like this. I think I've started blogs twice, and neither lasted very long.

  2. Thanks, I really appreciate that. I hope I keep the motivation. Time will tell.

  3. Very nice, B. Russ. I think you should have named the blog ... The Insatiable Beast.

  4. Little known fact: "The Insatiable Beast" was my nickname in college.

    (no, not really)

  5. What happened? You were sated upon graduation?
