This is something that, 2 weeks ago, I never thought would have been a possibility, let alone a reality.
My humblest “Thank You” to Kevin for taking me into his community of excellent bloggers. I can only hope to be a worthy contributor to such a fine place as this, and I will do my best to honor the Wizbang “brand”. .
Also, my sincerest congratulations to my fellow new posters who made the grade. You are all deserving of this honor.
Since I’ll be a regular around here now, I thought I’d just say a little bit about myself.
I’m 37 years old, married, no kids, and live in New Jersey (Jersey jokes start in 3. 2. 1..). I have 2 dogs and 4 cats.
I have no formal writing experience and have never blogged before.
In addition to the county community college, I have attended, for a brief time, Montclair State College (now a University), in northern New Jersey, where I majored in Psychology. I decided to get out of that when, one day, I realized I’m not a big fan of the general public, and I really didn’t want to listen to their problems for the rest of my life. I am now a manager for a large retail chain, which isn’t much unlike being a psychologist, and I am around the general public all the time, listening to their problems. Sigh..
Although I was not always one, I have learned to be a conservative through observation and experience, and appreciate everyone who, through the years, has contributed to curing me of the disease that is liberalism (which occurred mainly in my late teens/early twenties.).
I am an avid video game junkie, all pc games (I hate consoles). I’ve been a drummer since I was 13, playing in an original hard-rock band, jamming around clubs in Northern Jersey and NYC. I love photography, bird photography, in particular, and have a rabid interest in Astronomy, especially astro-photography, which I do in my backyard with a humble little set-up in a self-constructed observatory.
And now I’ll be a blogger here, on this great site, where I hope to fill my own little niche, and write things that will hopefully interest other people.
I have a feeling this will become my favorite hobby very soon.
And that’s about it for me!
Thanks to Kevin and all who supported me, and congratulations to all the other “winners”!! You all deserve it!
