What is writing about? Why do people share things online and blog? It is much easier to answer this question when one has picked a theme they want to write about. If you would like to focus on technology and gadgets, then it’s easy to say that you’re writing because you want to discover and share interesting things about the latest technology. That could be one example.
For me it’s a bit different. I don’t really have a clear theme, goal, or topics that I want to explore. I think personal blogs should not have themes at all. Themes are great to focus your efforts in order to produce quality blogs that cover certain topics, but at the same time they limit you and your ability to express whatever is on your mind. The freedom to express yourself is essential to creating a long lasting personal blog. The ideas, beliefs, interests and many other things change over time which also means that the theme of your blog should also evolve.
OK, so what and why this blog? This is going to be my 3rd (?) attempt at a personal blog. I don’t want to pick a specific theme or topic. Previously I tried focusing on tech and engineering. This time I’m planning to write about whatever I find interesting without being bound to any topics or themes. It will probably lean toward tech topics, but time will tell. I doing this because I think I need to have some personal space online.
