Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Thomas Lydon, the man behind “The Mind of Lydon.” Or, if brevity is more your thing, you can simply call me Tom. I like to think of myself as a number of different things; one of them, as you can tell from reading this, is a writer. Writing in general has been a major part of my life ever since I was a kid. From poems in elementary school to articles in newspapers, I’ve been sharpening my skills as a writer for several years. It hasn’t received much in the way of recognition, but then again, I write more out of a love of the craft instead of a desire for recognition.
What else is there to know about me? Well, among other things, I consider myself to be:
- A sports fan, particularly of Boston-based teams
- A video game enthusiast
- A music lover
- A smalltime philosopher
- A minor funnyman
- A dreamer
- A straight man…most of the time, anyway
- An overall geek
There’s much more to me than that, but for the sake of trying to hit a sweet spot between a long and short introduction, that’s just a sample size of who I am. Rest assured, future blogs will be much longer than this. However, the most important thing to keep in mind with me is that what you are going to get out of this blog, whatever the subject might be and whatever my stance might be, is 100% honest. I’m all for different perspectives, but I’m not the kind of person that panders to certain audiences and tells them what they want to hear; my feeling is that in doing that, you’re not being honest with yourself, nor are you being honest with your audience. I get that there are subjects and topics that may upset some people, and that’s perfectly fine. I can’t change how people feel about different subjects. but at the end of the day, what I ultimately want to do is be honest with what I write, both to myself and my audiences.
With all of that in mind, I feel it’s time to take my skill in writing, and all that I am as a person, to a new level. That’s where this blog comes in. It’ll have a little bit of everything; sports posts for sports people, gaming posts for gaming people, and some posts in-between for everyone else. Sometimes, i may even answer your questions as part of a blog. I want to try and reach as wide of an audience as possible with this page, instead of being a one-trick pony. It’s bound to be a learning experience for me, but one that will be just as enjoyable as it is insightful. And my hope is that you will come along with me for the journey.
So, after reading all of this, I hope you’ll stick around; as the old saying goes, the best is yet to come.
‘Til we meet again,
