The first post. Always a trepidatious thing. There are many questions.
Do you launch directly into your subject matter, Binkies blazing? This would be the professional take, although not lacking in hubris. “This blog is going to take the world by storm” you think, “why bother with little things like introductions.”
Or, in lieu of such arrogance, do you harp on the magical beginning of a thing? Allude to all the chuckles-in-potentia of your newly birthed blog, and thank the folk who’ve stumbled upon your meandering prose. Be sure to ask them to come back soon!
Much like what’s happening in my life currently, I don’t have the answers. So I’m going with a bit of both.
If you hadn’t surmised from the clever URL, this is my “dad blog.” There are many like it, but this one is mine. My daughter is due in less than 10 weeks, and I don’t know how to properly understand and/or deal with a thing unless I write about it. (It’s a weakness. And it’s not my only one.)
So welcome friends. Welcome family. Welcome complete and utter stranger.
To Bumble Dad.
