My previous blogging venture and experience was in the following Blogger site (thulasij.blogspot.com). Being a newbie in the WordPress platform, it’s best to break the ice in relevance to the “assignments” for WordPress newbies – (Blogging 101, Day One: Introduce Yourself.)
So, proceeding with the list of questions:
- Who am I and Why I’m here?
Expected this though! (chuckles). Well, my name is Thulasidasan Jeewaratinam – proud author of NotThulasidasan. As I have mentioned earlier, I used to blog in Blogger platform till writer’s block wave came crashing. Following a three or four month break from blogging, I decided to pursuit a different platform to rejuvenate my passion for blogging – hence, WordPress. Why I am here? Blogging, duh.
- Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
My views are not narrow-minded and I believe it should not be exclusive only to my eyes. Keeping a personal journal does not earn my admiration as I strongly believe it limits your debatable knowledge to yourself as well as provides an easier route for writer’s block to kick in.
- What topics do you think you’ll write about?
I’m a enthusiast of everything, ranging from sports fanaticism to controversial articles. I would not classify my posts under one particular field. Thus, my posts would cover multiple fields, without refracting too much. A significant number of my previous posts dwelled about my perspectives over certain issue.
Without further ado, I’ll end this brief introduction here. Hopefully, with more posts to ensue. Citing my personal favourite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson;
We must be our own before we can be another’s.
