Hello, World! Welcome to LiveIntensely.com. My name is Mike Marcacci, and this is my blog. While I’m not new to blogs (I’m actually a reasonably accomplished web developer, with many projects involving blogs), this is my first attempt at a personal blog. That’s right, this is another one of those… I’ll try to keep it at least occasionally useful or informative, and from becoming like the many festering amalgamations of ranting emotion and unsubstantiated literary vomit that plague the increasingly overpopulated blogosphere with high-pulse run-on sentences and abused adjectives. (Please, please, note the irony in that last sentence!)

Anywho… I think I’ll make this short, because nobody likes e-pages full of text. Nonetheless, I feel it’s only appropriate to, in my first post, briefly address the implications of this blog’s name as a product of personal philosophy: live intensely. It sounds pretty simple, and it is. Pardon the chiché, but life is like a handshake: if you don’t commit, it’s limp and gross and YUCK!! Stop! Woof — I hate even thinking about the floppy insult…

ya…
