I Can’t Believe I’m Blogging

Well, it’s finally happened. I’m throwing my hat into the ring and starting a blog. If you asked me six months ago, I would have laughed at you and said “Blogs are dumb and why would I add to already full internet! There’s no room!” I’m not sure what happened but I found myself reading more and more blogs. The information I found on blogs became just as useful as the articles I would read on any major website. Then it hit me. One mans garbage is another man’s treasure. The crap I’m dribbling out could someday become useful for someone. For example, with this blog entry it could someday be used in a term paper titles, “When Blogging Jumped The Shark”.

Let’s see what happens. I give it 3 – 6 months before I get bored and jump to the next thing. Maybe I’ll start a podcast or something. In the meantime, I hope to fill this blog with at much crap and I can think of in the areas of technology, business, entrepreneurship, family and humor.

    hi renato, out of boredom i tried to google my maiden name and your site came out and i was so excited to open it up. you know, im also a mascardo from the Philippines and i am wondering perhaps if we are connected, i mean relatives. I was born and raised in cavite. I dont know if you ever been in the philippines but you look like a filipino so i messaged you though my dad used to say mascardo is really spanish. btw, molly is such a beautiful baby, so i read that you are in san fran, i am in san diego and i married a white as well, actually he is half dutch and half irish but he was born and raised in PA, well i hope you can message me back, btw, i also left this message as a comment on your blog. take care and god bless.

  2. Renato,

    Welcome to the blogosphere. I came on just a bit ago as well. Interestingly, the stuff you are writing about playing around with/reviewing are some of the same web2.0 tools I notice being thrown around the edu-blogosphere.

    A blogger from whom I sought advice — Christian Long @ Design Share — advised me to be ready for a weird paradox. You have to write as though you’ll be on the front page of the NYTimes, and at the same time understand that nobody will read you.

    But I will. I just added you to my Bloglines feed. I’ll be interested to see how your areas of interest mesh with my newfound passion — imagining school 2.0. Also curious to read you post about fatherhood.
