Like Kyla (Slated Series Protagonist), I wish my memory too had been erased, my personality wiped clean and that of the past good and the bad irrevocably lost.
Since, none of this would happen, I was inspired to have this blog slated. However, I didn’t have a heart to destroy all posts nor the love and support I was showered with, by this supportive blogging community. Therefore, I’ve decided to leave things as they’re but nevertheless, do what I can to reboot or rather revamp it.
Why do I blog when in fact, I would rather keep my writings locked in a vault?
I’m frequently faced with this question when I sit down to write something that could be posted on the blog. Well, it’s no secret that not everything one write can be published, being vulnerable takes humongous effort and a belief that everything shall be alright, your ideas or thoughts would be accepted or at least rather not instigate the reader.
To tell the truth, not publishing a new post doesn’t mean that one has simply stopped writing. Sometimes, the written material is raw, deep and could be judged by someone and everyone on the other side of the planet too, which inhibits one from taking the drastic step of publishing naked truths.
At the same time, there’s a threat of plagiarism which make it all the more difficult to be forthright with publishing one’s work. Besides, everything comes with a price tag and associated risks which has to be taken along with the joy of merits.
Now, to answer the question, I blog because I want to express and connect with like-minded people and even the not so like-minded people who could offer valuable perspective on matters concerned. Besides, it would help one build confidence and help shed the unhealthy protective layer that keeps one blind to all possibilities or new opportunities.
For me, blogging is a bridge that keeps me connected with the civilization – the one that I’ve forsaken or could be the one that left me high and dry. Though, it’s all a matter of perspective.
