This is a test, it is only a test

This is my very first attempt at posting a blog.

I discovered blogging during the election campaign and got myself one through Liblogs.

I have been looking at the different blogs since then and commented whenever the notion hit me. Some of you may already know who I am.

Up to this point I have not actually posted my own blog. The reasons are many and varied. Mostly, it is a matter of time contraints. I see the work that goes into other blogs and I just do not have that kind of time. My job keeps me pretty busy when I am at work and my wife keeps me pretty busy when I am at home.

So this blog will be an occasional one.

I am a Liberal supporter because I believe they have done much good for Canada during its history. So, my posts will generally be supportive of the Liberal Party. I make no apologies for that.

However, I also like reasonable political discourse so I will not make glib, insulting remarks about their opponents on this blog. Some thought will go into my posts so I would hope that some thought will go into any responses to them. However, judging by some of the comments I have seen on other blogs I am pretty certain that I will be disappointed from time to time.

Well, this post is just to introduce myself and to do a little experimentation. I will probably tweak it a bit as things go forward.

I look forward to blogging with you all.

I'm happy to see that you've started a blog. I've seen your comments around the blogosphere and they are always good.

Welcome! And I agree with your sentiments too.

Well, about time! ;-)

Frittering away your insight on other peoples' blogs... fooey on that!

Looking forward to your posts.
