So, I have been forced to write a blog. Actually a few friends suggested that I do so about a year ago. What for? I asked. To me blogs just seem to be postings of random and not so random thoughts about life. Ok, I actually read a lot of DIY blogs on almost anything, especially if I want to learn from another persons experience. Yet some blogs ( like this one), are simply about nothing, leaving me to wonder why they are posted at all.
You see, I am returning to college , to finish what I started about twenty years ago. Most communication and assignments will be through the World Wide Web, the world’s boundriless meeting place. In addition to a few basics such as Algebra and Degree planning and Visual Literacy, I am enrolled in a Creativity and Multicultural Communication course. It does not begin until September 12th, therefore I cannot fully explain it. What I do know is that it is interactive, and that I’ve been forced to blog. It is a requirement for the course.
I chose to use WordPress only because a friend mentioned it to me about a year ago. It took me about a half hour to choose a theme. I sorted through five pages only to go back to the Andrea theme on page one. Then I had to pick a background color, I instinctively gravitated to blue. But will other readers be able to tolerate blue I wondered? Perhaps black or dark grey. I used these on a website when I shared photos once and the color definitely made the photos stand out. What am I supposed to write about? I have eight children, blogging about life with them may cause anyone employed in the psychiatric field to post their contact information in the comment box. I have two grandsons, I think that I am too young to blog about those two cute, adorable, huggable, kissable, chunky cheeked little boys. Nah, that’s for older people right? (smooch on the cheek Jammer and Dot). I am Muslim. But wait, Sept. 11th is approaching, someone may misinterpret a simple blog about being a Muslim lady in America, and forward it to Homeland Security, that’s if they are not reading this already. So what’s left?
We shall see.
