The Nutshell

Now that the official welcome is done and you are, I assume, making yourself comfortable on the couch with a glass of punch, we can all relax and get to know each other a little better. Enjoy the party! Because that’s basically what’s going on here. It’s a blog party. I’m your host. If something’s missing, let me know, I’ll fix it. I aim to please. I am a very considerate host. But I’m also a vacant-minded one at times. Things slip me by. Often.

Okay, where was I? Oh, right. I was going to explain my blog title. I’ll do it here and then I don’t have to bang on about it in future posts.

I was craving a creative outlet. Well, some kind of outlet. I just needed a type-randomly outlet and figured this blog thing could work. So then I spent a little time trying to come up with an idea for a blog theme. They’re supposed to have themes, aren’t they? Like a film review blog, or a cooking blog, or a travel blog, or something like that. Well anyway, I decided I didn’t really have a niche. I decided I would just incorporate a little bit of everything. Whatever found its way into my brain. So, essentially, I decided that this blog would be about nothing. It is basically the Seinfeld of blogs. It is influenced by whimsy, eclecticism and anything that sparks my mind while I’m near a computer. So, deciding that, I figured combining the two basic elements of what I wanted to do, and what really describes me would be the way to go.

Whimsical: Of excessively playful expression. Pursuing an odd or fanciful notion. Erratic. Unpredictable.

Eclecticist: One who does not follow any one system. Combining favourite parts of all options.

So, that’s me in a nutshell. The whimsical eclecticist. And really what the aim for the blog is. Just me being me. I’ll try to entertain, to inform perhaps, and ultimately to share what it is to think like I think and be me. And we’ll hopefully get to know one another. Or at the very least, you’ll get to know me. And shortly, after all these introductory posts, I promise, there will be content.

So you enjoy that punch, and I’ll enjoy that punch, and I’ll open up a little and tell you things you’ll never be able to unhear. For this party is just getting started. I’m gonna go order the pizza. Hold tight!
