Why blog...?

So, I'm on Twitter, Facebook, etc. and was thinking about other forms of social media given that my day job is Director of OPEN Forum Startegy & Marketing for American Express...it's what I do on a day-to-day basis.

And then came the blog...I had wanted to catalogue what it is like to train for a marathon for a while and just hadn't got around to it. Then, I also realized that many of life's events are marathon-esque in that they require planning, dedication and take more than a few minutes to complete.

Hence my blog...starting with training for the New York City marathon in November, as well as working to launch the new openforum.com [scheduled for 7.16], getting MacRay Music off and running, as well as anything else that feels like it's worth doing.
