After spending about twenty minutes wracking my mind on what to blog about I have come to a few slightly worrying conclusions. First of all, I have realised that when I need my brain to think, it refuses to do so. Second of all, I have been trawling along this site trying to find the ‘write a blog’ button for far longer than any sane minded person would. I guess it’s not all that easy in the blogging world eh? This all takes thought and preparation , two key traits I have not been gifted with. Anyway, after all my thought and preparation (which is none) I have decided right now, at 10.45 pm on a college night to blog about blogging. Sound your trumpets, blow your whistles, raise your flags and clap your hands… I know, I am a genius !
I am not very use to blogging as you can all see, apart from my late nights sitting at a computer screen sharing and re blogging cool pictures I have found on Tumblr that’s about as close as I have gotten to the ‘Blogging World of Blogs and Typing’. And nights writing up articles for college assignments. What is going through my head is what ever happened to good old pen and paper eh? Gone are the days where we would be informed or write about things that were not on the internet. I guess what I’m trying to say here is that at 19 , I’m still baffled by technology and the internet and this whole community we have going on. Granted I am on Facebook, and Twitter basically all day everyday , I still cannot grasp the fact that this is it . We no longer need to write letters to communicate, we just send a quick mail through Facebook, we are no longer informed of key events or momentous occasions in the world through newspapers and word of mouth, we just log on and it is all over the ‘Twittesphere” . And now here I am writing a blog. An online blog. I have just joined a community of people who share their thoughts, wisdom and news from their laptops, computers, Ipads etc day in and day out . And it’s kind of scary, exciting and strange because God knows where this could lead. And of course pursuing a hopeful career as a print journalist I cannot help but feel as if I am helping destruct the print business by working online. I have been told that blogging is the way forward and I’m looking forward to starting my blogging rampage. I just need to think of something to write about…something interesting, something worth reading .. hmm, who likes spoons? Spoon blogs. Learn about the world of spoons. No? Okay back to the drawing board.
Till next time, crazy scary new blogging world I have entered.
