I figured my first post on my new blog should really state what this new venture is motivated by and what you can expect from ADoseOfPersonalWhim.
There are many forms of expression… and up until recently, I was quite skeptical about blogs. Why couldn’t people just write in a diary? Can’t they just “facebook it”?. However, this judgement was shoved aside when I read one of my friends blogs about her time studying abroad. As I had also been abroad, and failed to keep an account of what I did, I realised the power of blogs – pictures, words, memories. Facebook is too invasive, twitter is too vague and paper doesn’t proof-read!
As the World gets smaller and her issues get bigger, it is hard to not express an opinion on what is happening around the globe (however uninformed). Recently, I have had many experiences and encounters that have changed my view of things. I have read, watched and heard of many circumstances and issues that have provoked intense emotions. Some of these are as small as my “pet hates” and some as important as gender inequality. Furthermore, I have increasingly felt the need to write these things down. They are too valuable for me to forget and too broad-ranging to remember.
So to conclude, here is my very own wordpress. My spelling is awful, my views may be one sided, but It is exactly what it says on the tin – A dose of personal whim.
Note: The views I express are my own, unless referenced. I do not intend to offend anybody, however if you are offended, click the little “x” in the top right-hand corner and that should sort you out.
