I have set myself the challenge to write something here every day.  Sharing that goal with you is a means of putting additional pressure on myself to post something daily.  So thanks for reading, and by reading, wanting me to write more.  Even if only a little.  Thank you.

I will write every day, but topics will range widely.  On any given day it could be information security, or IT in general. It could be some neat trick I pulled off while expanding my home network.  It could be the latest political shenanigans by the Ridiculous Right, or an LGBTQ issue of interest.  It could be about Religious Freedom – by which, of course, I mean Freedom From Religion.

Warning: it could be pictures of my cats.   But I promise I will try to keep those to a minimum.

I recently backed a Kickstarter called Flip Bands.  It’s very simple: an elastic band you wear on your wrist every day.  When you do whatever the particular thing is you are determined to do that day, you flip the band over.  The side you expose then is green and displays a check mark.

Years ago, I took training for using a paper-based organizer system called Franklin.  The instructor emphasized that you had to have some things in your plan every day that you could check off.  He told us the act of checking off would give us a shot of endorphins.  I haven’t measured my endorphin levels with any precision, but I will say I never found a reason to disagree with that instructor.

So I predict that if my daily cadence makes it until my Flip Bands arrive, it will go on for quite a while.  I hope so.  The way to write is to write.
