After “blogging” on Tumblr for the past two years and getting absolutely nowhere, I decided that I wanted my own place in the web. At first, I was reluctant about starting a self-hosted blog because a.) it is undeniably pricey; b.) I don’t even have a laptop and camera of my own, yet; which c.) these two things are essentials to quality blogging; and finally d.) I doubted anyone would even want to hear what I have to say. Of course, despite all that, here I am! Excited and inexperienced, to say the least. Nothing is really quite set up and final, though. I’m still tinkering with themes, trying out different plugins, researching wise investments for a blog, etc. But I just couldn’t wait to post for the very first time in my own .com. YAY!
Anyway, the real reason why I’m so determined about making a name for myself here is because I want to be able to freely express my thoughts without worrying about what others might think. Having my own site kinda seals that deal. I’m here under my own terms and conditions; where I’m allowed to be different. Where I’m allowed to upset the status quo because I can, to assert my opinions, to agree and disagree on certain beliefs, to voice out what I think is important, and to escape from the mainstream of society. Simply, to just be myself.
I can’t say I’m an expert at this whole blogging thing, nor will I ever be… but I try anyway, so that should be good enough. Doing what you love is twice more rewarding when you’re able to make some cha-ching, too! Though I’m not rushing in on anything, I do hope I’ll be able to make a career out of this passion as well. Maybe doing sponsorships, paid ads & collaborations, and the like. I’m actually meaning to sign up for Nuffnang, or launch my blog, or whatever. I don’t know, anything can happen. I’m being very optimistic about everything! But for now, I’m just enjoying a piece of the freedom I’m able to have. So to sum it all up: my blog shall serve as an outlet to my thoughts, and snippets of my daily paranoia and adventures. 🙂
Self-expression is the dominant necessity of human nature.
