The Introduction

August 29, 2011

Welcome! My name is Matthew, and I am trying to become a blogger.  To be honest, I have tried in the past and failed.  I started strong, then my motivation fleeted, and it was months between posts – if I have learned one thing about blogging, its that no one will care about you if you wait months between blogs – to be fair, I wouldn’t have cared about myself either.

So here it goes.  I am fairly new to Burnaby, and am really trying to get involved in the community.  In my search of ways to get involved, I ended up running with the Burnaby Greens, a party that really reflects my values, and has allowed candidates talk about issues that are important to them.  For me, that includes food security, fair wages, community development, and environmental protection to name only a few!

These topics will be discussed here in the blog without a doubt.  And if I know myself (and I like to think I do after 28 years), I will probably meander, discuss other things that strike my fancy.  I hope you won’t mind.

I will also take photos of this great city, and I intend to share them with you.  All in an effort to write more, share my thoughts and feelings, and hopefully engage people in this city, so please join in, discuss, comment – I would love to hear your thoughts.
