What was I thinking?

Filed under: Uncategorized — by AmiraAK @ 12:37 am

This is Huge! This blogging thing. I decided to take a look at other blogs and check out some of my friends’ and other acquaintances’ blogs.. but I have begun to realize that this is not something to be taken lightly. No wonder it took me so long to think it over.. I think of thoughts and issues that I would like to write about but discover that they have already been discussed and dealt with amongst my friends and people I know, let alone among the general public out there.. what contribution then will I be making to the world? why would anyone want to read my ramblings? Of what significance will my blog be? just another useless page on the internet!? I don’t even know how to operate this thing. I can’t even put links to my friends’ blogs :(

I don’t usually venture into territory that is much larger than me.. or do I? actually I do. so I guess this is just another challenge that I’ll have to face and tread and explore. I’ve been told it is fun and I have been warned that it is addictive.. my greatest fear is that my life is getting even more electronic than it already is.. I fear the time will come – and it will come very soon – when the pen and paper will be a rarity in my life. where then will I put all those notebooks I keep buying? they are already piling up.. my black pens are also piling up and drying out without even being used.. Has this been a wise decision? Shouldn’t I just force myself to physically write by hand? or is the temptation of photos and media and colourful interfaces and wonderful digital explorations too much for me?

Again.. let’s see what comes out of this.. It is just the beginning. Even if no one reads it, I’ll be happy to have some record of my thoughts in this chaotic world of ours that I can go back to a few years from now.. something I can read and laugh at or contemplate.. or something that I can delete at the press of a button.

hasta luego!
