What to Expect

In short, your guess is as good as mine.

On some level, it's surprising I've taken this long to start a blog. On another level, it's not the least bit surprising, since a good blog requires constant updating and a good effort level. Attention span and work ethic aren't great strengths of mine.

But when you're unemployed, you're also open 24 hours a day. That means I have a lot of time to fill, and if the writing muscle is just like any other muscle, it needs to be exercised to avoid atrophy. Distressed Reporter, then, is my treadmill.

I can't promise a certain number of posts per day. Some days will be more productive than others. Nor can I promise a blog with a laser-like precision on certain issues. If things go well, on any given day I'll write about the presidential election, the Atlanta Braves, Florida Gator football, the latest entry in the Song of Ice and Fire series and the fact that Jennifer Connelly is, as the kids these days say, attractive.

All I can promise is that everything I post here will be written with care and dedication. Beyond that, I'm simply walking along an unfamiliar path, and I sincerely hope you will forgive me when (not if) I stumble.

Nice blog, fellow Andrew. Sorry I wasn't in town when you stopped by Austin; did you enjoy your stay?

Always good to spar with astute liberals. That being said, what are your thoughts on the candidates this year and the prospects of a widened Democratic lead in both the House and Senate?

Hey fellow Andrew. Austin was a nice town. Cool campus, but very hilly. If I end up going to grad school, UT will be on the list.

I hope to write something soon about the campaign, but I'll say that I'm genuinely enthused about Obama, but a little concerned about the way he's run his general election campaign so far.
