My thoughts on blogs.

8 May

I finally have a blog! Celebrations!

However since this is my first time using one, I’m not entirely sure on how best to use it. I thought for my initial post I’d talk about why I felt the need to start a blog in the first place.

I’ve always been a rather quiet, introverted person. I am also, as it happens, an extremely opinionated person and these two sides of me clash quite a bit. I often have something I really want to say but can’t. This is always caused out of fear of one or more of the following three things: shyness, certainty that I’m wrong or that slight speech impediment I have (I trip over words easily, and talk far too fast).

So I figured: hey, why not scribble my thoughts down online? That way the problems I have speaking would be non-existent. Shyness wouldn’t be a factor because I’m not projecting my views in front of other people, and I’m aware that few people are actually going to read my posts. This also nips the problem of potentially being wrong in the bud, because not only am I open to advice from others but since many of the future posts will be personal views they can’t really be wrong, per se.

Another advantage of creating a blog is that I can use it to attempt (perhaps without success) to justify the ridiculous amount of time I spend on the internet. Rather than playing flash games or procrastinating on cracked.com, I may as well turn the hours I plough into online activity into something more productive. Who knows, perhaps it could aid with college work too? It does require a lot of writing and contemplation. I’ll try and link this into philosophy and literature studies as best I can.

Oh and I know this is probably very dry and not very exciting to look at, but I’m sure I’ll be able to make this blog more attractive and digestible over time.

Simon.
