Why am I here?

Why am I here?

Blame Dave Slusher.

I've been listening to a lot of Podcasts in the last month, and I love them. Check my links and you'll see my favorites. Getting those Podcasts has changed my entire commute. Instead of the usual MP3 banter I listen to (Motley Crue, Neil Diamond, stuff like that).

My wife has a skill for writing-something I've always wished I had, but never have. Writing will never be my strong-suit. That's when it hit me. I could do my own Podcast. I've always wanted to be a D.J.- this would be perfect. I like music; I like talking... what could be better?

Enter Dave. In a couple of recent Podcasts, he mentioned another Podcaster with a southern accent and how great it was. Over the next couple of Podcasts, he mentioned how he wanted to hear Podcasts done by people who are "real", not just D.J., "Morning Zoo", generic stuff. He wanted to connect to other bloggers. It definitely resonated in me.

So I threw out the D.J. idea and began to think about the things that make up who I am: my family, parents, brothers; and what I enjoy doing: Cub Scouting, technology, gadgets, web design.

There are a lot of Weblogs and Podcasts dealing with design, gadgets, stuff like that, but none about Scouting.

So here is my weblog about my adventures in Cub Scouting.
