This is BaddaBing BaddaBlog! I am Lucas DeRuyter, an aspiring Blogger, Writer, Entrepreneur, and Politician. Currently I am a student at the University of Wisconsin Madison and I’m loving every minute of it. I decided to create this blog as a way to discuss topics and create conversations that I have difficulty finding in my everyday life. Most of the stuff I post here will be related to current events in some manor and will be a combination of informing you, the reader, of what is going on and also contain my opinion on the matter to some degree. While many of the posts will relate to my aforementioned aspirations, you can also expect to see a large amount of pop culture, gaming, and generally nerdy subjects posted on this blog as well.
I’m still fine tuning my release schedule, and what type of content I want to post and when, but I should have something mocked up shortly. As soon as I get that together I will post it posthaste. I am currently thinking that I will have that up by tomorrow or Friday at the latest.
I also feel that need to mention that I have never done anything like this before. This is my very first blog and, other than a few articles I read on how to be a successful blogger, I have no clue what I am doing. To me this is both terrifying and exciting. Starting this blog is intimidating because I am not used to expressing my views and thoughts to what could potentially be a very wide audience and because I am unfamiliar with what I need to do for this project of mine to be successful and offer some kind of fulfillment to me. Despite these, in my opinion, valid concerns and worries, I am going to choose to focus on the aspects of starting a blog that excite me. I am looking foreword to learning how to operate a blog on the job. I also eagerly await creating connections with viewers and creating some new relationships. A part of me also hopes that this blog will eventually lead to a situation where somebody pays me to write about the things I enjoy, but that’s more of a down the road concern and I find that little good to fret over something that you have little control over. Well, after typing all of that I am sufficiently pumped to start this blog and seeing if this pet project turns into an adventure. Hopefully I can get a few people to come along for the ride.
