Enter stage right…

I’ve been really tossing around the idea of getting rid of my Facebook page and going forward with a blog.  This is the second time I’ve started a blog and I hope that this one works better than the last one.  There was so much crap associated with the other site, that I ended up losing interest and then closing the blog.  I did a lot of research and found that WordPress seems to be the number one choice for beginners and experts alike.

I think that the better part of valor for my current status of being deployed to Iraq is that I will end up keeping the Facebook page and also blogging here.  There are a great many things that happen on my team’s daily missions into the city of Mosul, yet none that I want to post on Facebook, which limits the number of people, at a time, that I can send it to, so I end up cutting and pasting several times to send it out to my nearly 300 FB contacts.  Combined with a slow internet connection, the whole process can be a time-consuming chore and a headache as well.

The blog name will change with time and circumstances.  The term randomosity, which I thought I had made up combining the words “random” and “curiosity” (or “random” and “animosity” as those that know that I have a temper can attest to).  It appears that there are a few others out there in the blogging world that have used it, but they probably have their own reasons.  Is it a real word?  I don’t know or care.  It sounds funny, if amateurish, and I like it.  So there.

The next entry will be the first of as many interesting, thought-provoking, soul-searching, and random interests that I will try to keep up with here.  I don’t always have the time or energy to be creative but I’ll do my best.  I write this right now, because today is an office day, with no missions planned for the team.  Therefore, I have nothing but time on my hands since no missions means no paperwork.  I try to not bring my laptop to work when I can avoid it, as it is a distractor and I tend to slack off on the tasks that I should be getting done.  However, today’s schedule is open and I am liking, already, the ease of posting things on WordPress!  Kudos to you, WordPress, for making this a quick and painless process for clumsy posters as myself.

Okay, well, introductions are over and reasons for posting are explained so I will wrap this one up.  Thanks for being interested in my boring life and I hope you are not disappointed by future posts!  Stick around long enough, and I’ll even post photos and videos when I can.  Have a good one!
