So It Begins

What this blog is
If you’re interested in books, travel, writing, food, coffee and quirky perspectives on the world, then you’ll find something here worth sticking around for. AntSaint.com is about anything from writing novels to backpacking through Asia, from a good microbrew porter to an average day on the range in my home of Eugene, Oregon.

There’ll be off-the-cuff smarty-pants remarks, and some serious musings. There’ll be reflections on ol’ day-to-day life, and overall curiosity about the world and its general nuttiness. There’ll be links and book reviews, photos and lots and lots of stuff that I can’t yet even imagine.

What it’s not
What there will not be is endless why-blog?-navel-gazing (it’s like writing a novel about why people write novels) or eye-glazing second-by-second retellings of my day (Oatmeal. With chocolate chips. Wore my red shirt to the office. Remembered pants, but just barely).

I hate that crap. If I lapse into this rot, slap me (antsaint at myway dot com). I’ll thank you in a post.

Why it’s here
I’ve set up this site for a few reasons –

  • It’s good practice. AntSaint is personal and professional. I’m a writer and editor by trade, and there are projects I’m working on that I need a website for, both now and down the road.
  • It’s the 21st century – not having a website is like not having a phone number.
  • I have something to say, even if I don’t know what it is until it catches my attention and doesn’t let go.
  • What I have to say will be different. At least, people around me say that I look at things, and talk about them, a tad on the out-there side. I’ll just post and spout, and we’ll see what happens.
  • It’s fun. ‘Nuff said.
  • I’m hoping that the end-but-ongoing result will be some good, not-too-clean fun. Have a good time, thanks for coming around, and if you’ve got 2 cents to add to my 2 cents, leave a comment or send it to antsaint at myway dot com.
