    Ok, so since I posted about the possibility of posting some non-freebie related posts there has been much curiosity as to what types of things I would post. So here is an example. I wanted to share my first blog post ever.

    This post is titled “How I Became A Blogger” and it was posted on my first blog ever, “The Variety Blog of Freshness.” Since I don’t maintain that blog anymore (due to lack of time) I figure I would share it here and see what you guys think. It was originally posed on December, 31st 2006. Let me know what you think.

    How I Became A Blogger
    What have I done? Here I am, losing my blogging virginity to a black Compaq keyboard, kicking myself with each letter I press. I am trying to shut out the “It’s not too late! You can still go back! Delete it! Delete it!” conscience over my left shoulder, but she just gets louder. “You should know better! You were raised better than this. Where did your sense of judgment go?”

    Doesn’t help. Nothing works. The more she questions, the less I listen. La la la la la la la la la la. The plank I’m walking is starting to look like a diving board. The “publish” button is so close…

    I have decided to become a victim to modern day society. Just weeks after joining Facebook I have chosen to start my life as a blogger. But at least it was a choice. Unlike the throngs of people drowning in the depths of digital assimilation, I used a logical and carefully measured thought process. I thought like a smoker: “OK, I know this is a bad descision. What I’m getting into has been known to be addicting. Many people have not been able to quit….but it feels so good!”

    But I have trouble placing the sudden technological gluttony that has befallen me. Why did I finally choose to join all the tecky hype? Well, I have only one conclusion: Power Wheels.

    I can only faintly remember the commercials I saw as a child. Most of the details have dissolved into some other form of energy. What I can remember is this: a little boy and his sister sit in the front seat of their Power Wheels ride (a Jeep) as they tear through their front lawn at 50MPH, both laughing.

    I must have thought, at the time, that they were on some secret mission. Or maybe just trying to catch a squirrel. (Now I can only speculate that it was nothing more than a joy ride.) But I was sure that smile on their faces was a direct result of the Power Wheels vehicle they so expertly drove. And so I wanted one. I wanted to speed. I wanted to sit in the front seat. I wanted to be in control.

    But I didn’t get one, at least not until I was 17 (in the year 2000). And it wasn’t exactly a Power Wheels. It was a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlas Sierra.

    The car was not in great shape. I was surprised it made it through Y2K. The A/C was N/A, the horn sounded like a rooster with laryngitis, the turn signal needed to be manually shifted back and forth to blink, the tape player didn’t eject tapes–it shot them out like a cannon, and rust streaked through the blue paint like logs floating in the ocean. Needless to say it was not as glamorous as the Power Wheels I fantasized about as a child. (Instead of chasing squirrels I would just run them over.)

    My childhood dreams of driving drifted away with the realization that it was too late; my Cutlass would never be as fun as the Power Wheels.

    And today, the more technology I see the more I think about Power Wheels. If I had gotten one as a child I wouldn’t have been so disappointed as a teenager.

    This is precisely why I signed up for facebook. Why I began blogging. If I don’t take advantage of this technology while it is still fresh, still cool, I will just be disappointed later in life. Now I know this type of stuff has been around for a number of years, but it’s popularity still grows every day. So realized its never to late to blog.

    And so here you are reading The Variety Blog of Freshness. And here I am, hopelessly determined to stay on top of the emerging trends.

    But there is still one place I can visit to get away from all the new tecky-hype: http://www.fisher-price.com/us/powerwheels/

    hope you liked it!
