I have been wanting my own blog for quite some time, and began wondering, what is a blog exactly? Or more to the point, why do I want one? I would like to use this blog as a forum for my ideas, discussion/dialog with others, and to express my views on topics of interest. Mainly, I would like to use this blog to post life stories, views on various topics related to education, and a place to post travel experiences. I will also blog on any topic that I happen to be passionate about at the time. I hope others will join me in this journey. I see it as a more extensive forum than a site like facebook. I’m kind of shy because I’m new to blogging, but eventually hope to welcome friends and family to this site!
