Welcome to Today in Heritage History at Word Press.com.
We began as a one page children’s book forty years ago, and have grown into the mega-publishing online empire that we (I) are today (that was all bullshit). All I can tell you is,…”stay thirsty my friends”.
This was an idea that came to fruition almost a year ago now in my desire to use my inherent “talent” for being a “smarty-butt” (thank you Sister Patricia…), and my hope to not just be a “stupid-smarty-butt”. Hence, welcome to the land where humor meets history (or history meets humor, however I’m feeling that day). Ya’ know.. some days its funny..and some days it “ain’t”. The ill-humor I share here, even though no real animals have been harmed in the process, just isn’t for everyone (or maybe it’s for no one except me, I haven’t decided yet). Some days you hit a home run, and some days, you strike-out every time you get at bat. I don’t know why I just said that because I fucking hate sports analogies. Today is my effort to poke fun at both history and the human condition and to be smart. I made the commitment a year ago (July 18, 2011) to do at least one post every day. The year has not been an easy year for me, but I have kept my commitment to myself and to my readers and have done just that. The Today blog won’t be forever…I have since started a couple of other “things” that when the time comes, should you be an ill-humored disciple (joking), I’ll let you know where you can find me. If not, you’ll finally be rid of me.
One last thing that I really want to say here, is about blog award “stuff”. Thousands of you (well like four or five) have nominated my blog for whatever kinds of things are around Word Press world (which I LOVE by the way…this is such a neat community of bloggers…I never realized what a community of bloggers was on blogger…it’s like pissing into cyberspace). As difficult as it may be for some of you to believe, Today is my alter ego. The “real me” can always be found at my LinkedIn profile. And, the “real me” has a difficult time with notoriety and being “awarded”. It’s not that I don’t really, really like some one to appreciate my work, it’s just that I have a really hard time with some one pointing that out. So, for those of you who have done so already, thank you so very much for doing that. It is not that I am smugly unappreciative as it may seem at first, it’s just that it humbles me terribly and is something wonderful but not necessary.
So with that, the blogospherecalled today is now inside the home page. Venture if you will, as you know the journey can be funny or not, offensive or not, smart or not, or even true or not. Regardless, consider it as a historical “wet-willy” waiting for you on the other side. Enter at your own risk, but any way you have it, have it with some fun. Stay funny my friends…
