Ahhhh. This is crazy. I can’t believe the day is finally here – MY VERY FIRST POST.
This blog isn’t something I simply just created on a whim, like many of my fruitless endeavors. No, I actually thoroughly thought this through (woah..alliteration) and this has been something I have been planning for months. (In Clancy Time, one month = very, very long.)
The only thing that has really ever stopped me from creating a website/blog/whatever-you-want-to-call-this is the fact that I have a YouTube channel. I (A) didn’t want to lose focus on my YouTube and (B) figured that since I have a YouTube channel no one would be interested in my having a blog.
But then I realized 2 things.
1. In life, you just have to do what makes you happy. Rather than try to provide an answer for an endless stream of questions that form in your head, you just have to go out there and do what feels right. I wanted so badly to make a blog, so why should I let anyone or anything stop me?
2. Although it is true that I have a YouTube channel that I use to express myself, I think that a blog is an entirely different thing. I could make a ten minute video about petunias (just go with this for a second…) and then write a 10 page blog about petunias and they could end up being 2 completely different things. The medium, after all, sometimes is the message. By reading my posts, it will give everything an entirely new meaning, will provide you with an entirely new experience, and hopefully, will evoke entirely new opinions.
So….with that being said…..WELCOME and I hope you stick around!
