Facebook, twitter, blogger, tumblr, etc. all provide us a platform to create a fake/desired image of ourselves. Of course everyone wants to be liked (both in the old-fashioned sense of the word and in facebook terms) so I don't blame anyone. It's human nature and no social networking website will ever change it.
According to Merriam-Webster 'a blog is a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments and often hyperlinks provided by the writer'.
Personal journal. I like the idea. I intend to turn this blog into one. I want to create rather than merely duplicate content.
I want my digital self to be as close to my real self as possible. I want to take the responsibility for what I'm doing here, which gets us back to my initial thought. People who know me in real life sometimes comment on something they see on my blog stating that 'it's so not you'. And they may be right.
So from now on this blog will be 'so me'.
ps. Just told my husband how hard it was to write this first post after that long hiatus. He suggested to write 'hi, everyone, I'm back'. He always makes me realize that I'm the one making my own life so complicated.
