The whole concept of blogging is to put your thoughts out there, so that they might be heard... right?
In fact.. a blog could be pretty much anything that you want it to be. Some quotes about blogging:
A blog is in many ways a continuing conversation - Andrew Sullivan
Blogging is the new poetry - Unknown
A blog is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list. -Unknown
A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world. - Blogger
One of my goals for this new year was to establish an insightful, and artistic blog which aims to provide people with an awareness of the many injustices that exist in our world, and to provide them with the opportunity to take their place in the effort to combat these injustices.
SO, my goal for this blog is to take each month and focus on a specific issue, such as clean water or hunger. During that month, I will try to provide:
Stories of real people, so that issues can be connected with real faces.
Recommendations of books that provide further information
Highlights of organizations and individuals who are working in the featured area
Ways that you can be involved
One or two new original pieces of art/photography: The proceeds via my Etsy shop from which will go directly to the featured cause.
Even though I am getting to a little bit of a late start, I have a topic for January picked out, and I am excited to begin working on it.
In addition to this project, I have joined the B.E.S.T. team on Etsy, and will begin to have weekly highlights of other team member's items, hopefully starting next week!
