I Blog, Therefore I am…?


If there was any doubt, there isn’t any longer. My name is Anthony and I am a blogger.

No, this isn’t a post about how many followers I have, or how many views I have had today. This isn’t about success as a blogger, but just how much blogging is affecting my life.

You see, in a couple of days I am headed to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.  I am headed off on another cycling trip, hopefully leaving this late fall weather behind.  Included in my preparations are visas, clothing choices, smart packing options, safety, and of course how I can best blog about this trip.


Yes, I am consciously wondering how I can share my trip with others. I should be wondering how I can best eat as much food, enjoy as much scenery, and drink enough beer.  Instead, I want to write blogs without having to type on my phone.  I love my phone, but trying to bash out a text is less than fun.  My fingers just aren’t that agile.  So, I bought this very thin and light keyboard.  Then I found a tablet I could get for free with Shoppers Optimum points…..and the rest is history.

Rather than question whether something is really wrong with me, I am merely accepting the fact that I am a blogger. So expect a few, hopefully entertaining, blogs from my trip.


About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    I’m so jealous. Have fun on your trip.

    • Anthony says:

      Thank you so much. I am not sure I should have undertaken this trip before Christmas, but the opportunity presented itself, so here I go.

        How come? I’ve always thought it’s the best time to travel next to the holidays of course. Nevertheless it’ll still be good.

      • Anthony says:

        I think it is because all of the credit card bills will come due at the same time….or that I’ll get home, and have to rush out to Christmas festivities.
        I am probably (slightly) worried over nothing.
        Thanks for your positive attitude.

    Look like you are so ready! Hope you’ll find time to blog when you travel. 🙂

      I might not have the energy to be profound. I might be a little woozy from after-ride cocktails in countries where they aren’t expensive, and I they might just be a collection of photographs–but I plan on doing some posting and I think that will suffice.
