Getting Started

As they say, the best time to start is now. I've had this blog for almost 3 months now, and I have yet to write a single post. I won't bother going through every excuse I've made, but here I am. The timing to start a new project like this isn't perfect, but it never will be. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to write about, but that's fine, too. 

As a basic introduction, I'll say that I hope this blog becomes a useful way for me to organize my thoughts, learn from readers through their comments and messages, and hopefully help my readers gain something valuable as well. My first several posts will likely be based on a cool website I found, or a new book I read, or any other review-based stuff. This is mostly because it'll be hard for me to run out of things I think are fun/neat/interesting/helpful/cool to share, which means I won't have any excuses for not writing.

Having a blog has always interested me, so I'm excited to officially get started and see how things turn out. I don't feel like I have any groundbreaking ideas that everybody should hear, but I do feel like I've found a lot of interesting things worth sharing. I'm not looking to become a full-time blogger, I'm not interested in growing my reader base simply to brag about it, and I'm not committing to any overall theme that will cover all of my posts. I'm simply logging parts of my life on the web as a means to becoming more involved with the online community.

Thanks for reading, and wish me luck!

Why You Should Probably Buy Bitcoins

On Tynan

In 2009, probably within the first couple months of its existence, I downloaded the Bitcoin client and began mining bitcoins. Back then it was really easy-- you could get hundreds of Bitcoins per week for free, but they weren't worth anything. Not wanting to waste my time, I deleted the Bitcoin client, and any bitcoins I had mined went along with it.

Last March I thought about Bitcoins again and decided to check up on them. As I read about the progress that had taken place in the preceding years and learned more about the technical aspects of Bitcoin, I was blown away. This is going to change the world, I thought.

So I bought a few when they were around $30 a coin, a few more at $80, and then again at $110. I'm not a Bitcoin millionaire or anything awesome like that, but percentage-wise, it's the best return I've ever gotten on anything. In case you don't fanatically check the price like I do, it's at around $825 per coin as I write this.

I'm going to write the rest of this blog post to explain why I think it's important that you buy some Bitcoins, but take it all with a grain of salt. I do know a fair amount about Bitcoin, but I don't know much about investing or, more importantly, your financial situation.
