Why a blog… now?
OK, so I’m a late-comer to starting my very own blog. While I did blog for several months at American Friends Service Committee, I’ve never had my own space to discuss the things of interest to me.
Sure, you may say, “Millions of people start new blogs every day, why bother?” or “What’s going to make yours different?”.
Well, I’ve been thinking about how blogs serve as a useful platform for socializing and sharing on the “Social Web”. First, blogs create a space where I can have a dialogue with folks interested in the same things. Plus if I’m trying to get out the word on something, I must abide by “share and share alike” and help post content that others want to share.
I also think this blog will help me further flesh out and explain the vision and mission of Aquifer Media, my new consulting biz. I plan to compile and share information on social networks both inside and outside Cyberspace and how we can use them to create a better world.
I’m starting slowly and want to post only TWICE a week to start. We’ll see how it goes.
So stay tuned! More information is on its way!
