I started this blog yesterday to talk about the things I’ve enjoy. That was the main goal, that’s what we all think when starting a blog (although, other people just want to get some revenue, there’s nothing wrong with that either).
In less than 24 hours I’ve become more and more familiar with WordPress.com functionality. Mostly because I’m a programmer, I like to poke things and see how the work. I’ve yet to see the day I don’t poke things and find how things works. That’s not the case here though, I’m not here to talk about that.
The Blogosphere is an amazing place to be today.
And that’s what I’m getting into. I’ve read over 3-4 posts made by random strangers today. I don’t know anything about them. I sure as hell would love to meet them someday.
I’m glad blogs exists, in a way because you never really run out of things to read. You learn from different random joes, or even relate to them depending on the situation or what he’s trying to expose to the world. Our voices on the internet is almost nonexistent, no matter what, the internet is vast. Search Engines helps to get the word there. But having a centralized hub like WordPress.com/Typepad/Livejournal/Blogger/Tumblr is way better than starting your own thing.
Now, going back to the random posts:
One that caught my attention was, My Penis Girl, written by a mother struggling to embrace her daughter’s identity. To name another one, Why is the “Ideal English Major” uncurious and anti-intellectual, among other entries.
I never read those type of things in Tumblr or Blogger (although, to be honest Blogger seems like a rundown mill compared to this).
Anyway, that’s for today’s ramblings.
