As they say, “Hello, World!” I read somewhere that your first blog post is bound to be flawed, so you might as well get it over with so you can get on to subsequent posts, which will be much stronger and more interesting.

But this blog post isn’t so bad, is it? I mean, really, World, this post isn’t making you turn away in disgust, right? And what about beginner’s luck? Some chicks are born adorable. . . . In fact, most are, in my opinion.

Nice to meet you, World. Let’s keep in touch.
