After passing up two previous rounds of submissions and then weeks of waiting for Round 3 announcements, interlaced with nail-biting and a mounting retaliatory urge to create my own blog network (cheekily named the 10commandments Network), I received an invitational email from Paul. Ah, success!
So why wait to until now to join 9rules? For starters, I had to make sure that the rumors of gold-plated iPods and Aston Martins for new members were true, and the rumblings of RFID implants and rubber hose initiations were false. Having completed my research and finding the benefits to be, um, beneficial, I broke out my trusty Mango Tango Crayola crayon and scribbled my acceptance letter to Paul. The rest, as they say, is history (or, in this case, heavily embellished fiction mixed with the questionable truth).
So as I write this entry from the backseat of my Aston Martin, my gold-plated iPod gently serenading me with a random selection of “Freebird,” I welcome those of you joining me from a link on 9rules. I feel as though I’m in good company, for sure, and I look forward to meeting lots of you on our 2006 summer retreat to Como. We’ll sip hot beverages in quaint cafes, sail on the lake, and play croquet in the piazza. Huzzah!
I tend to write about a broad smattering of topics, so hopefully there’s something for everyone. Whether I’m nerding out about the latest version of Textpattern, giving Sony BMG’s technology partner the backhanding they deserve, or evangelizing my latest musical discovery, I aims to please. I hope you enjoy your visits here.
