A Beginning Is A Very Delicate Time

For my first post permit me to humor my love of the movie Dune.

A Beginning Is A Very Delicate Time. Know then that my name is Mitchell Colbert and it is the year 2013. The Known Universe is ruled by a panoptic technology that is enmeshed in everything we do, called The Internet. In this time, cool kids write about what they do and post it on the Internet for complete strangers to read it, and maybe laugh, and perhaps expand their consciousness. The Internet is vital to modern life and available even during space travel.
Humanity, and a subspecies of Trolls who have been mutated by thousands of hours on /b/, use the Internet to read the news, watch funny cat videos, and post 140 character updates to Twitter. We can stay connected to any part of the universe without moving from our chairs.

I’m done paraphrasing Dune for now, but I felt it an appropriate way to start things off. Now that I have gotten the ball rolling permit me to tell you why I have decided to create this blog and join the ranks of those illustrious cool kids who tell people about what they do on the Internet.

This blog is not a political blog, it is not a photography blog, cooking blog, DIY blog, or any sort of themed blog, but it will probably include all those topics and more. This blog is about things that stir up my passions so much that I need to share them with the world. Expect political posts to keep you up to date on the news the networks don’t cover, expect me to share life hacks to make your life easy mode, and expect me to post plenty of recipes/photos/poems. I am a person who views knowledge as a communal good that should be shared with as many people as possible, this blog is my means to that end.

I will be trying to post with some regularity, once or twice a week. That may not always happen since, unlike professional bloggers, I don’t get paid to write this and work a real job, at the world’s largest medical cannabis dispensary, Harborside Health Center. You may now be wondering how much of a real job working at a medical cannabis collective actually is, read on, dear readers, and find out.

A beginning truly is a very delicate time, and how something begins can predict how well it will fair. I picked today

    Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • Sorry to hear about that! WordPress ate one of my last blog posts too, it happens. While I love WordPress.com as a platform it isn’t perfect, though I doubt WordPress.org is any better (.org and .com are totally different writing platforms, one has widgets and one has plug-ins…otherwise they seem the same). One tip is to get some content pre-made before you start, it will make your first few weeks of getting the hang of things much smoother. Write whatever you want, this is your blog so why should you EVER limit it? My blog rambles all over the place, it may not be the best for developing a reader base who demands consistency but it fits my needs and since it is my blog I do what I want. I only hope my readers can appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of this blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition,
    the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Exceptional
