As a freelance writer, I cover a lot of ground on the Internet. It's a hazard of the job, putting yourself in the line of fire of so much content. There really is an overwhelming amount of content out there. I've been reluctant to add to that chorus of voices in the past. I have a hard time stomaching a lot of confessional and personality based art and media. How many people are seeking a piece of your time, only to use it talk about themselves? The idea that we are just vessels for our creations, a channel for energy, is much more appealing than the cult of personality. I'd rather not know what kind of socks Justin Bieber wears because it cheapens the mystery to me. Alas, I am part of the minority. Soon the whole world will know the color of his foot ware.
As a writer and fledgling music producer, there is an urge to connect with and cultivate a relationship with an audience that brings me to blogging. I want to reach out to as many connections as possible to work on projects. As a freelancer, getting paid is like sweet music to me, but it pales in comparison to getting to work with other people on projects I never would have dreamed of. That's what get's me up in the morning. That's what keeps me looking down this uncertain path, where the next paycheck could come from any direction. Also, I get to work in my slippers.
On "The Robots....Are Coming!" I'll be sharing my professional writings, some personal musings, updates on my music projects, and try to keep you up to date on traveling and wilderness excursions. You might even get to see pictures of my dinner! If you've made it this far, thanks for reading. I'll try to keep things interesting.
