Last night, I had a conversation with someone I deem close and that person said,
“What is this blog going to do for you?”
“You are just wasting your time!”
This made me upset (obviously) and made me rethink my personal goals and aims.
My answer to this person, whom is to ignorant to even read my blog, is:
This blog allows me to publish my previous work,
this blog allows me to have an online portfolio,
this blog may lead to my dream job,
this blog allows me to write freely – my thoughts, feelings and experiences,
this blog allows others to know they are not the only ones out their with similar experiences,
this blog allows fellows (like ‘the lone man’) to know that their grief is shared,
this blog allows me to share historical artifacts of my past (like Benjamin Gabbett Gaffney),
and most of all, this blog keeps me going while I am unemployed.
So, for now I will keep blogging what, when and how I want.
