Blogging is an art. It is sometimes a passion for the poet beneath the skin. It is harsh when the truth is at stake in the battle for pride and reputation. It is education for those who are willing to learn. It is also emulation for those who are willing to lead by example.
It is also a responsibility. Blogging is not just about everyday journals or ramblings, it is also a way to understand and feel around you. It is sometimes filled with emotion, sometimes dealt with compassion, and sometimes foster relations. It may not be a way of life but it might be a defining moment on things you decide in your years of existence.
So, why do we blog? This is not something to show off to everyone so that we can have our fifteen minutes of fame. This is not to show you our prowess in constructive English. And this is not to let you know we are wise and an “advisory channel” when counsel is needed most.
We let out our angst in the hopes of understanding what was misunderstood before. We write some of our secrets, opened a little bit of our closets, so that people would have a little bit of idea on who we are. We tell you stories, because we wanted you to know that there are places beyond the reaches of the four corners of your room, or cubicle for some, and your eighteen inch monitor. We are like your old but wise granddad mesmerizing you with his decade-old stories of wonder during our younger days.
Lastly, we blog to create social awareness. It is not just to get attention even though sometimes we get more attention than we deserve. It is not to get famous but to enlighten some of us on important things that escape us as we thread on to the future, as we devise ways to achieve our dreams. We don’t blog just to be famous, we write things because we want you to get the point. And if you didn’t get it, at least we did our part in orienting you into this world full of pretenses.
