Bored Dandy Emotional

So this is blogging.

I don't know what I'm really doing here. It's not something I really thought about until a dear friend planted the seed of thought a week or so ago. She said it wasn't so much a suggestion as the beginning of a relentless campaign.

Right now I don't know what this will become; I have no particular theme or agenda. There's every chance no one but myself will ever read a word of it. This is just another blog among the millions. billions?

But it's something for me. I like to write. I hope to have interesting thoughts to write about. And gradually get better at this.

The name of this blog is Bored Dandy Emotional. I don't like naming things. I'm not good with decisions that I have to stick with. It took me a good few weeks to name my dog when I was 14. Even then, the name Lucy was suggested by someone else and I was done with indecision and happy for it to come from someone else.

This name came somewhat easily though. It has some meaning, but not too much. It will take form as the blog does. Essentially it is derived from the Triffids album 'Born Sandy Devotional', which I was listening to today. Bored Dandy Emotional seemed to work well and will potentially cover the range of posts that appear here. Those that come when I'm bored and just want to write, those that come when I'm dandy and want to talk it up, and those that come from being emotional and using this as an outlet to explore the associated thoughts.

I don't expect there'll be too much emotional.

Mainly random, hopefully interesting, ideas and thoughts.

That's the introduction, the starter. I'll list this one under 'Bored' or 'Boring', and will probably want to delete it tomorrow.

Now I need to come up with something to actually write about though, so here's hoping the next one is actually interesting ... and maybe someday another pair of eyes might just cross this blog!
