There’s something about putting thoughts onto, figurative, paper—something about putting my vulnerable thoughts out in the open for others to read, ponder and judge. Thinking deeper into my thoughts causes me to think more creatively, think more broadly, about both opportunities and possibilities. Blogging is defined as a web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections and comments. The word is both catchy and trendy. It is short for Weblog—blog.
I am a now a blogger, and here are my thoughts to be critiqued, ignored, or shared.
Here are a couple blogs I admire that contain aspects I will try to incorporate into my own blog. Happy web-surfing!
- Franceleclerc: This is a fairly new blog; the first post was posted on August 31, 2012 and it only contains about five posts. The photographs of the blog are the meat of the blog, but the text gives it life. The author is fascinated by foreign cultures and cares, most importantly, for the children of the world.
- Aric Visser: I absolutely love the story telling aspect of his posts, especially the most recent post. I also admire that posts are written in both English and Spanish.
