Hello World,Bonjour ,Saluti
I am new into blogging world and the first thing I want to do is to express my gratitute for those who will stop and read my unsignificant blog .My first topic will be more related about who I am and what I am doing in here ,,,Do I see myself as a blogger ????
I think it’s interesting that I use a blog to gain a better clarification of who I am for myself, while you’re almost suggesting (or I am perhaps falsely interpreting) my blog to help others gain that clarification about what I already know about myself. Obviously we are not comparable as bloggers, but still.
But is not the Mimi I present to the world the same Mimi Popa I present in my blog? Can my family and friends ,business colleagues,still learn, know and maybe acceptmy political, personal and philosophical views in a different medium (say, in person-to-person interactions)?
While I understand the work, effort and thought I put into my blog must reflect and speak volumes about my identity, if my blog represents me, then people who know me should already know the message and purpose of my blog. I doubt once offline I cease to be an ally or technology nerd (among other wonderful things, natch).
Perhaps YOUR blog gives better clarification or a different insight of who you are, and you may be more comfortable with learning and connecting to people through the blog form or sharing facets of your identity through this medium, but it’s entirely possible that no matter how personal you are on your blog, some people find the experience wholly impersonal. Some people may also reject linking and blogging about what is happening to others by others in other places can reflect the self. Some others (I hypothesizing and speculating here) may feel that a blog creates an unbalanced unilateral relationship, where they can only learn about the author but there is no mutual exchange of information, feelings, or self.
The real hypothetical questions are: Do you think your blog provides the sole window into who you are or just reiterates and reflects it? Do you see your identity as fragmented or compartmentalized? Do you withhold certain facets of yourself for different audiences, interactions and situations? (I would argue that we are all at fault to a degree). If you feel your blog is the best representation of you, then how does that reflect on you as a person not username? (I guess that strikes me as even more complicated given your username IS your name).
so folks ,lets get ready and start the blog journey but please ,dont be so critical ,my dearest audience .
