Let’s begin, shall we?

Hello, my name is Shawn McClearn and this is my first blog. What can you expect from it? Well, I think this following list will go a long way towards answering that question:

  • Why?  Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the biggest one is that I don’t actually make anything.  Writing and editing a blog will start changing that.
  • It’s All About Me – Some blogs focus on a particular subject, but I don’t have the wherewithal to focus on just one thing.  Unless, of course, that one thing is me.
  • Nerd City – My ‘geek streak’ is a mile wide.  I still read comics regularly and play Dungeons & Dragons from time-to-time.  Impassioned arguments about Star Wars trilogy excite me.  I’m also a budding history nerd who listens to numerous history podcasts and am frequently reading a history book.  If you’re looking for cool, you have come to the wrong place.
  • Snark – I can’t help but sneer.  It’s a coping mechanism.  It’s also the default attitude of our era, so at least I’m not alone.  That’s something, right.  Right?
  • Chaos!  (Kinda Sorta) – The look, feel, and subjects of this blog will be changing frequently.  True to the title, I’ll be making this up as I go along.  Content-wise, I’ll be attempting to find my “voice” and it will likely take me a while for me to get to that point (if ever).
  • “Bruxism”, a Fun Word to Say – It’s such a nice word for such a gnarly sound, that sound being the grinding of one’s teeth while sleeping.
  • I Reserve the Right to Change My Mind – Nothing I say should be taken as gospel.  I might settle on a look and feel on this blog once and for all in the near future.  I might also find only one or two subject to focus on.  Time will tell.

Study hard people, there’ll be a quiz later on.

      But not TOO deep. Let’s not scare ourselves too much. 😉

    Best wishes on your blog. I still remember early Saturday mornings, riding on the school bus to a speech tournament, listening to the Police (together) on my Walkman.

    Bruxism? You just made my day.
    What a word! Sounds like chewing rocks!
    I got one for you – gollicking – the chatter of one species of bird, usually at nesting time.

    Here’s to Eris, goddess of Chaos, and all her wacky ways.
    Have a new follower.
