What’s all this about a blog?

There’s a lot going on over here at One Floor Up, and we wanted a forum to share it all with you (yes you internet).  Here’s the thing though – we’re new to this and we totally don’t want to suck at it. 

What’s a blog supposed to be? We’ve found a few places to start.

Dictionary.com:

A website containing a writer's or group of writers' own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other websites.

Sweet, that’s something we can handle.  In fact we don’t want this blog to be the corporate musings of a random company – because that’s just not our style.  We want this to be a place for all of us at One Floor Up to share what’s going on with our lives, inside and outside of the cubicle (ok ok, we don’t have cubicles - but if we did).

Here’s what we’re going to avoid

UrbanDictionary.com:

Short for weblog.  A meandering, blatantly uninteresting online diary that gives the author the illusion that people are interested in their stupid, pathetic life. Consists of such riveting entries as "homework sucks" and "I slept until noon today."

Right, thanks for the warning Urban Dictionary.  We’ll do our best to avoid the blatantly uninteresting.  Instead we’ll fill this space with personal triumphs, funny clips, video’s that make us smile (or sigh, or cry a little), people watching, quirky art, and anything else extremely interesting that we can think of!

Just to ease in to it though, we’ll start by having our staff introduce themselves.
