The journey begins with the first step

I'd been thinking about starting a blog for some time now, but my problem has been deciding what my focus should be. I'd been thinking about a blog about my work, but there are already so many good blogs on librarianship that I couldn't think of a good niche.

Luckily for me, I've been prodded into action by "Library 2.0" a workshop for University of Kentucky Librarians. I signed up and agreed to pursue proficiency in 2.0 web skills. Step 1: create a blog.

So. What IS the focus? I will keep things fast and loose. Think of this as my public diary. The framework, though, the lens through which this blog will (probably) focus, will be my experience with motorcycles. I started riding last June as a passenger, took a Motorcycle Safety Foundation course in October, and got my license in November. I still don't feel road worthy, but I am making it a goal for 2008.

Wow! I keep having this little twinge in the back of my head that I want to try driving a motorcycle, but the lack of metal surrounding me makes me nervous. Can't wait to read more of your experiences!
