I'll keep this brief and just get my ideas on here.
I started blogging back in 2010. What I mean by that I would post every few years until 2014. Even then, I would sporadically post. Then I shutdown my blog. The next few years I would bring it back and post, then stop again. Those years were very tumultuous. Lot's happened through out the years when I did post.
I posted about the excitement of going to university, my travels domestically or internationally, or basic thoughts on something. Looking back at them, my writing was not good. When I wrote them, my main goal was to get my ideas out there, even if the grammar was horrendous. I'm still a work in progress. I guess I learned and still learning from this.
Why am I back?
I blog because I want to share my thoughts, which seems pretty obvious. The real reason I write is to find the person I've always wanted to become. For many years, I lost control of who I was. All that ambition, all those goals were pushed back. Truly, I want to learn how I can become more expressive with myself. I want to reconnect with myself. Blogging is only one piece of putting me back together.
I know I will make mistakes. I know I will push my limits. I just want to express myself. I will also proceed with caution.
Why I blog?
Share my interests:
Technology - I love technology. I've been using a computer since I was a young kid. My first memory of a computer was walking into the school computer lab with colorful iMac G3s. I was in love it at that moment. I write tutorials on how to do this and that. I want to share my knowledge
I like helping others - I've read many blogs that helped me through different phases of my life. I hope to do the same. If I at least help one person, I am happy.
Find communities of people - I am happy to have joined the IndieWeb and different communities.
See my own growth - This is important. I want to see how I become as a person while I age. I have so many questions for my future self. My future self will write accordingly.
My own time capsule - I want to be able to see what I did from now to when I get older. It will be amazing to see how things changed in the world. I want to share with my loved ones my blog and to have them remember me.
