I'm a great writer and an awful writer. And like many great and absurd projects, I'm starting this project to learn, both about myself and about the world around me. To start off, I want to say that I make no guarantees of quality of my posts, nor of the frequency of them. Great way to start a weblog, huh? Well, we'll see where this leads.
I also run... er, participate in a Finnish language weblog, Suodatin. Suodatin has had its ups and downs since the its inception in the beginning of this year. Suodatin's biggest hindrance is that I haven't told anyone about it. To my knowledge, it's the first Finnish blog ever. I like the notion of entering uncharted waters, but being the first also creates some problems. For example, there's no community to turn to shout "hey, look at me, I started my own weblog!"
The real reason I haven't told anyone about Suodatin is that I'm scared to. I worry I won't want to keep blogging Suodatin. I'm afraid people won't like it and that it'll show my own ineptitude. I don't know. I know I'm just a big 'fraidycat. I know I shouldn't worry about any of that. I know that I should throw caution to the wind and take chances. I know all that. I just need to do it. So that's what this is also all about. Breaking personal barriers, expressing myself without worrying it'll jeopardize my career. This is about a lot of stuff. I hope to see you on my journey.
