Last week the idea came to me via the voice the sits close to my shoulder every night, nope I am not crazy I just have a smart, suggestive wife who told me I should start a blog, well i guess more of a site in which I can share and showcase my writing, my views and opinions on topics that are close to my heart and need a voice. Whether that voice be mine or someone else’s.
And so A Mind of It’s Own was born out of both necessity and my need to put pen to paper or feel the touch of a keyboard beneath my fingers as my thoughts are poured out about life, love, liberty and the liveliness of the Australian community around me.
Like the title suggest this blog could take on a mind of its own, it could end up anywhere and everywhere. Knowing my own mind and the way it motors on every piece of information before analysing it, we could end up exploring some deep dark personal crevices regarding my own personal struggle with Anxiety and Depression.
I’m sure there’ll be some good times shared and some bad, some topics people don’t want to hear about and some they secretly do, but are too ashamed to admit. There will be times I’ll throw out to the public for them to provide a topic in which I’ll diligently research, if it’s interesting, otherwise I’ll probably just end up copying and pasting from Wikipedia to the disappointment of the avid fans I know I’m sure to attract.
I’ll share stories of friends and family and people who I don’t know, some will be fictitious and others will be the truth and nothing but the truth. I will however always protect the identities of those involved. Unless they ask me not to then you’ll get to know all about them and what they do Monday through Sunday.
There’ll be times where I’ll just post chapters or ideas of books or pieces I am working on, for people to provide their opinions both good and bad, but take it easy I do have feelings.
No matter what the topic or post, I can promise you (The reader) that you will get a no holds barred account of what my mind really thinks. You’ll be glued to your seats, with your eyes bulging, brain whirring, stomach churning in what I can guarantee will often be and empathetic journey of the mind.
And always remember! These views are solely my own and by no means represent the views of my wife, employer, family, friends and acquaintances or anyone else who feel they might have been thrown into my world through my thoughts and feelings.
