Foundational Philosophy for this Blog

The definition for the word blog is as follows:

A website containing the writer’s or group of writers’ own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often has images and links to other websites.

Now, it is known that the definition of a word can change over time.  However, I think making a current definition clear is an important step in determining the very nature of my first blog.  Also, having a clear understanding on what this blog will attempt to accomplish will put me in a direction as a writer, as opposed to posting random stuff with no clear vision.  I also do not expect this philosophy to not change!  I am sure that as I learn more about the blogging universe, and on how to get certain things accomplished and conveyed, that these philosophies may change.
Therefore, initially, I feel the current definition of the word blog is a reasonable starting point.  Therefore:

  1. This blog will record events of my life, my perception of these events, and what I learned from them.
  2. This blog will also share how these events influenced the rest of my life.
  3. This blog will record my observations and how I interpret them.
  4. This blog will also share how these interpretations influence my life.
  5. This blog will also record my opinions, however, I will do my best to back these opinions with facts.
  6. Finally, this blog will also attempt to show how these opinions make an impact to not only my life, but the very society around me.

I also hope that my readers will deduce their own conclusions, regardless of what I write.  And I hope, that maybe just maybe, my blog will get people to start thinking about concepts that maybe they have not thought to think about.  And it is through that process, we grow intellectually, and therefore we would grow as a people.  I do not expect everyone to agree with everything that I say or think.  But I do hope it will inspire other works, but more importantly, other thoughts.

It should also be noted, I may use different mediums to accomplish these tasks.  I may write freely, or in essay format, or with poetry, or a mixture of all three.  I may quote different mediums within my medium to convey the overall message.

And so, may our journey begin.  I think this may be a life changing event for everyone, including me.
