I had never thought that keeping an online journal that was available to the world would be something that I would do. A couple of friends were doing it and I was supportive of their efforts at expression, but it wasn’t something that interested me.
Then I turned 30. I started to look around at the world that I was inhabiting and was scared for our collective future. With 24 hour news cycling, social media, overexposure and mega-hype the world had become a noisy and scary place and I didn’t know what to believe any more. Not only that, it seemed that I couldn’t find anyone who was saying things that I felt were important. Talk about a lonely and very scary feeling.
As a result, I’ve decided to start this blog. Partially to get things off my chest and have my voice heard, partly to find others in the world that feel as I do and potentially to comfort those out there like me who are waking up, looking around, and seeking a voice above the ruckus. That we are not alone.
Or it could be I want to just rant and get things off my chest, like most bloggers!
