I blog enough, but because LinkedIn is a professional setting, I wanted to start exercising the business experience of blogging and web design. I wanted to share personal stories and thoughts that were different from my really personal site at Blackish.net, and give that side that some of my older readers have been begging for.

Also, some of the older bloggers are welcome to come back and take a walk through the land of nostalgia on their blogging journey. Feel free to comment here or there or both.
