Why I am here blogging publicly instead of keeping a private journal…
The initial answer to that question is: I don’t know. Perhaps I like the way my writings look in black and white, sorted out on a blog page and accompanied by interesting images. It’s like decorating a house; you can continue tweaking it till you are satisfied, add some more if you feel like and rearrange the contents according to your wishes. If you get tired of the layout, you can change, delete and tweak again as much as you want as often as you want. One thing I love about online journaling is the fact that it is easier to adapt it to one’s taste and clean, especially clean. With one swift motion, you can erase anything that is not according to your taste, you can correct grammar too, with or without tools. Sometimes people offer (un)solicited advice which helps you to grow as a writer.
Speaking of help, there are so many ways to further hone one’s skills in writing being offered online like this Blogging U. courses which are not only extremely helpful but fun as well. Something which is not readily available when writing a personal diary. So, that’s probably why I’m doing it publicly.
About topics… well, I don’t have specific topics in mind since my blog is a personal reflection of my day to day thoughts and past experiences hence all my posts are labelled Uncategorized.
Again, I have no certain audiences in mind when I started publishing. Anyone who can relate, feel addressed, interested or simply curious are all welcome as long as they are willing to exercise respect and common courtesy while visiting my page.
What I hope to accomplish in blogging… to impart knowledge and lessons learned from my mistakes as I stumble and fall through life. Hopefully, it will give some people head start in dealing with unforeseen circumstances and to entertain them a bit with my anecdotes and unusual encounters.
I hope this gives the readers and fellow bloggers some insight about me and what my blog is all about.
