The Start Of Something New

I find inspiration in some of the strangest places. I find inspiration in song lyrics and make them work for me — even when the context doesn’t match. That is what I’m doing by starting this right now.

In a song (in this case ironically) titled This Probably Won’t End Well, All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte says, “ there’s never a right time, except maybe this time.” He’s talking about a relationship in this song, but I applied it to me.

If you’ve just stumbled on this randomly, you probably don’t know who I am. My name is Michael Williams. I generally go by Mike, a lot of my family call me Mikey. Let’s go with Michael.

I am 31 years old. I’m a junior at Indiana University Purdue University — Indianapolis. IUPUI if you don’t want to say all of that. I major in journalism, my concentration is sports journalism.

It took me a while to figure out that this is what I want to do. I own a few domains from one service, but have to wait before I can transfer them to my hosting site. Fun stuff. I’m impatient and want to start now. We live in the digital age, and getting started in writing has never been easier.

What will you get from my writing on here?Hopefully something more than some bathroom reading. I want to cover sports, but I will rarely “stick to sports”. I will write whatever interests me. If it interests me, then I can find someone else it will interest as well.

I don’t want to be one of those writers that trashes everything. I don’t want to be one of those writers that says everything is awesome. If something is great, I’ll say so. I’ll provide stats that back my opinion. If something sucks, I’ll provide stats that back that opinion too.

This will all move over to a personal site in a few months. Until then, no matter how you got here — thanks, and come back often.
