What is the meaning of this?
OK. I never really found the concept of a blog all that appealing. In fact, I still don't. Nothing is more upsetting than to see someone invest so much time in their blog only to see no one has commented on it.
Frankly, no one wants to hear what I think about President Bush, the 2006 midterm elections, or the global war on terror.
But then I figured I could turn this medium into something that would not only be educational but also fun.
You see, I'm a native Houstonian with an interest in local history. I've always been fascinated at whatever purpose some old, decrepit building served years ago. It's amazing to look at one area of the city and realize that a century ago, it may have been a bustling residential area, an industrial center, or even an old Army fort. I always thought that there were still some forgotten pieces of Houston's history just waiting to be uncovered.
I've already started digging. This blog will show what I've found.
I don't plan to update this blog every day. Maybe once a week, maybe a couple of times a month, depending on demand. Either way, I hope you come away from it learning something new about the Bayou City.
