I Need the Practice

I know it's cliche, but one of my goals for the new year, the new decade, is to get a blog up and running. The point is to get myself in the habit of writing on a regular basis. As far as content, I plan on using this platform for commentary on the things that make up my cultural life: sports, movies, books, politics, fatherhood, technology, etc. This is an experiment, I have no real expectations, I just want to get my opinions out there, make writing a bigger part of my life. It's a skill that requires practice, and this format strikes me as a great way to practice. I'm usually an Allen Iverson type when it comes to practice, so hopefully this works, we'll see. If no one ever reads this, that's not the point really. Don't get me wrong, I'd very much like people to read my writing. First you have to create something to read, and I haven't been very good about creating product, so that's the plan.
