I’m 30-something, born and raised in Sonoma County, north of the Golden Gate in California. I have three beautiful kids and have been married to my much better half since July of 2000 — one month after my high school graduation.

About This Blog
This blog was started some years ago, when I was working as a Technical Support Rep for a northern California ISP, Sonic.net. When MoveableType was really the first blogging platform around, I installed MT and used that to run the first three iterations of deguia.net. Why three iterations? Because MoveableType was lame and ate my blog. Three times. After that, I turned WordPress.
While this blog started as just a means to kill time and goof around, it grew into a way for me to develop my writing abilities and as an outlet for my thoughts. While I won’t shy away from writing about topics, there are a few that have become the cornerstone of this blog: My support of the West Memphis Three, my love of books & writing, commentary of current events.
Those who have followed my blog over the years will, I’m sure, have noticed a progression in my personal beliefs, world views and writing style. The person I was when I started this blog, is not the same person I am today. I think that’s a good thing. What good is writing if it did not lead to growth?
You’ll notice that there are some ads peppering my blog. While I try to “hand pick” the ads on my site, what appears here will never persuade me to write about one thing or another.
