I started blogging in February on a lark. I read a bio on Steve Jobs and thought it would be a great idea to leave behind a record for my children, once I’ve passed.
Frankly, I wasn’t sure if it was “good for business” as a VC, but it was worth a shot. In fact, I didn’t expense to the firm the set-up and maintenance of jtangoVC.com. I have paid for it myself.
Six months in, I’ve concluded that blogging is fun, my family loves reading about my job, and there’s some help to Kepha, but not much.
But, I will keep blogging. I wrote a great deal in high school and college, the usual journalism stuff. Also, I wrote a lot of fiction and took many creative writing courses. But, once I jumped into the working world, I stopped writing. My life filled up with meetings, emails, PowerPoints, and the like.
I’ve now learned that I missed writing. It’s a great release. Other than cooking and sampling wine and Bourbon, it’s the only creative thing I do. (After reading this post, The Good Wife said: “Sampling alcohol is not creative.”) I’ve also met so many awesome people, who have come up to me (or written) that they read my blog.
So, thank you to all for your encouragement. I will keep writing.
