Blogging- The Writer in all of us!
What is the common thing that all bloggers have? What is the one uniting factor in people all over the world interacting on a forum?
The answers to these questions form my thoughts for today's blog. Each of one us here have our own writing style, we have different content material-some of us like to write about movie reviews, books, music, photography, family, science, religion, politics etc. The list of topics are endless, but why is it that even though many of us haven't been great English subject lovers in school, have turned out to be different now?
This is because we all have a writer within us who hasn't had the opportunity nor the time or interest to sit down with a paper and pen and write. Long ago, people use to write daily dairies, memoirs etc but with the advent of rapidly changing technology and computer, everything has moved to typing. Nowadays, we even type up a letter in Word instead of taking the traditional way of writing with a pen. Of course, there are still a few of us who still write an occasional letter to their grandmother or someone who doesn't have access to email and computer back in India.
But, the good thing about this whole blogging thing is that it enables us to express ourselves in ways that we haven't had a chance to do so before, thereby bringing out the hidden writer ina ll of us. Of course, there are some bloggers who have wonderful writing skills which makes their blog more appealing than others, but there are others who also write more for their personal reasons than for public comments.
The lesson and positive note for everyone is write, improve grammar, style and content for better blogs- who knows, someone may turn out to become a writer after blogging for a while..........happy writing folks!!!
