Five has always been my lucky number. Don't ask me why. It's always been that way since I was a kid. That's why I think this blog is going to be a personal breakthrough. You see, this is already the fifth time I am starting a new blog.
My previous four blogs were complete and utter failures. I have thought long and hard about it and I have concluded that there were three reasons for me having flunked it several times before:
In two of the four previous cases I had no specific goal. I just started writing about whatever came to mind, without knowing what it really was that I was attempting to achieve with it. But this time, apart from world domination and free sex, I do have a real attainable goal, and I will tell you more about it later...
In some of the previous cases I had no focus. I was just blogging along about movies, politics, computer programming and my dead cat. Just about anything that came along made it on my blog. After a while I started getting desperate about subjects which almost caused me to invent devious ways of killing my neighbors, just so that I would have something to write about. But this time I will have focus, and I will have subjects. They will not involve any deaths, at least not intentionally. You will see what they are soon enough...
Last but not least, I started to lose interest after a while. Writing a blog is like attending a fitness club. It feels great, but it's also tiresome and hard work. I solved this problem by not choosing a free blogging system this time. Instead I opted for the paid service offered by Typepad. I am sure that, each time I see the monthly fee being charged to my account, I will be re-energized and I will feel highly motivated to make it worth the money this blog is costing me!
