Ugh. So I'm finally doing it. Those who know me have probably heard me say in the past that I always do my level best to keep my online profile as small as humanly possible. It's not that I'm paranoid or believe in some overarching government plot to enslave us; I just like to keep a low profile. Well, certain life events have conspired to make me change that. It seems that if you're looking for a job, or just looking for the odd gig or two, it is necessary to put yourself "out there." These days, "out there" means the internet. So here I am. In the span of a month I go from having a facebook page that I rarely post on (a few good beers notwithstanding), to having a website, to creating another facebook page for my piping, to creating a twitter account (shudder), to sitting here typing this blog. That doesn't even count spending countless hours poring over my LinkedIn account (anyone want to hire a Civil/Environmental Engineer?). So here I am. This is it. My first post. After my failed attempt at twitterating, I'm hoping that the use of more than 140 characters will spark more creative juices. I never quite figured out that whole #hashtag thing anyway...
