The purpose of this blog has never been for attention.  I can think of over 13 different ways to garner attention from people that would take significantly less time than blogging.  I began for the singular purpose of helping myself organise my thoughts and quandaries.  I have been keeping a journal in one of my Moleskine notebooks.  Only the more exciting or thoughtful entries get translated into a post on my blog.

The name of my blog takes it origins from a constant theme found in my more foundational posts.  The “It Gets Better” posts are the first posts and the reason for the name of my blog.  “It Gets Blake” is meant to show that no matter the experiences that I have, they all will be the notes and scores in the composition that is my life.  Everything that happens constitutes my life, therefore “It Gets Blake”.
