Let's chat about blogging today. Blog: contraction of the term "Web+log" = Blog".
I started blogging as a way to share the things that are really special to me.
When I first started up my blog I had no idea what it would be like or what type of people would be visiting. The only thing I knew was that I had so many things that I wanted to say. Within this year I've learned so much about myself and things I could do. I have "met" so many amazing people that I would have otherwise never met, and I call some of them friends now. You've all inspired me one way or another and I hope, I also inspired you in some way. The whole world of blogging has turn out to be far more rewarding than I ever imagined.
My goal is to make people have a good time reading my blog. I don't set myself unrealistic targets. I cannot imagine being able to post daily, posting two or three posts a day, because I know I'll get kind of bored, or trapped into spending way too many hours in front of the computer.
My posts are always spontaneous with a variety of subjects, and I don't feel I "ought" to- by no means.
If I'm not happy about my post I don't post it.
Actually, I think blogging is an amateur process which may lead to important discussions by sharing creative and inspirational ideas. Blogging may also make people laugh or may build strong relationships between people worldwide. It's absolutely amazing how we're all connected, inspiring and supporting one another.
I have to admit that sometimes I'm a bit chaotic. It's pretty easy for time to slip away without getting much done. Then I realize that my personal and professorial life has taken a hit, and alas, my work and some of my interests have been affected. Ah, time goes by so fast before you even know it.
Anyway, I started blogging after analyzing my experiences, personal life, spare time, and style of life, so here I am!
Nexus means connection. And I think it's the word most fitted for use in describing blogging. xx
