First Post

I've been contemplating having a blog for literally months now. Every once in a while, something happens that I just want to shout about. The latest big thing is the tragedy at Virginia Tech.

Now there is going to be a blogging event about the barriers to people with disabilities, and it will happen next Tuesday, May 1. I just decided it's now or never, and just Did It.

I chose the name in about 1 minute. I called my blog Artistic License, because I like to do artistic things and try to be creative, and no matter what I write about, it'll be covered by artistic license. Choosing the web address was much harder, since a lot of URLs similar to artistic, artistic-license, etc. were already taken. The auto-generation genie wanted me to put my name in there, but I just didn't want to, so it took a bunch of tries before I settled on one.
