This is an awkward start. As I am writing this, I am very aware of my status as a Nobody. I will post this blog, no one will notice, and one more cent of opinion will join the inflated currency of the Internet. So! What a perfect time to experiment with the new medium. Except for a few forced forays in college, I have never sat on this side of the blogoshpere. It might take me a while to figure out. I love writing out in text, but some of my favourite blogs are done in video/audio. This is going to be an adventure.
So what’s this blog to be about? I’m not quite sure yet. Not about cats, though they might occasionally crop up in reference.
After all, look at ’em.
Not about my life happenings, that’s what my Facebook is for. It’ll be an opinion blog. I do a lot of reading and that turns into a lot of thinking, so this is my opportunity to formalize my thoughts and pass them on to the next reader-thinker. The beauty of a blog is that I can edit things as I get new information…….or at least I think I can. If I figure out how to, there will be an excellent right here —>Yay! Because my opinions are based on my education, they are likely to change. Opinions must be adjusted in life to either amend a position or address a counter, otherwise we might leave ourselves in danger of being stubbornly wrong. The benefit of writing down my opinions is that it means I have to actually look at them, and to think about what other people see when they look at them, and thus to constantly be driven to educate myself.
What range of opinions do I feel like expressing? Oh, culture, media, feminism, religion. I am not a studied expert in any of these, understand, which is why this is a mere opinion blog–my two cents worth, as my family would say. I hope this is the beginning of a good experience.
