Today, I left work a few hours early to vote early at Veterans Memorial. I didn’t have any meetings late in the afternoon today, and it’s about impossible to predict what Tuesday’s schedule will hold at work. I parked and got in line to vote at 3:50.

Call it a step towards managing my online brand. Call it an opportunity to get better at writing. Call it the result of frustrations mounting with another Tim Laubacher hogging the first page of Google.
Regardless of what you want to call it, I decided to start my own blog. Up to this point, I’ve done all of my online writing on our b&a blog. But sometimes I have thoughts that just might not relate to the focus of that blog.
