Reservations on a Blog
People who know me are well aquainted with my quality of reservation. I don't like to rush into engagements or commitments until I am fully sure that I am not just racing after some impulsive whim. It is for this reason that I have not created a blog. I have been fascinated with the blog for a couple of years now, and have enjoyed casually veiwing the lives of my older brother and more recently my family through their respective weblogs. However, as much as I wanted to jump on the bandwagon as soon as I moved away from home, I felt that a blog was some sort of commitment that would require time and effort. I felt I might not have these commodities. Lately, I have realized that my blog can be whatever I want it to be, and it does not have to live up to the day by day chronicles of the Bjorn Identity in its former glory. So I send this out as the introduction to the Life of Markus (a reference to Orson Scott Card's Ender series that I'm afraid will be missed by all who read this). Naturally, I won't even be informing my friends or family about this blog until there is sufficient content, so I present this, for now, to the colossal Jane, known by most as the internet.
