Why start a blog?


Well I’ve been thinking about it for a while actually. Thinking of it as a means of expressing my thoughts out of my cluttered mind. Ever since I got sick I’ve felt that my mind has been slower, that it was lagging … It felt rusted. I thought going back to school, CPU, would restore my mind to full fitness, it helped but didn’t restore it. Then there’s Uni, which hasnt really helped, yet.
It’s been almost 2 years like this and it’s not been very nice or easy.
I recently realized that the culprit of my sluggishness could actually stem from the ideas, thoughts and opinions cluttered in my mind. Like how functionality in a messy room or disorganized working structure, would be greatly diminished. So, my hope and plan is that this blog and comments validly challenging my points (I appreciate and welcome constructive criticism most of the time) will further help mentally stimulate me.
Hence, why I would start a blog.

I started this blog at the end of 2011 but only really started writing since early 2012. It started out as an outlet for myself with regards to life dealing with Fibro and then grew into something bigger than just me. My site is still growing, i change it around every so often to see where I can take my writing. My focus used to be matters close to the chest but now I’m focusing more on my weekly ‘Note on Life’, which is essentially a piece that relates to Productivity & Personal Development based on my experiences coupled with readings that have motivated and inspired me; from authors such as Robin Sharma & Dale Carnegie & books such as ‘The Magic of Thinking Big‘ & ‘Screw It, Let’s Do It’.

I recently ventured into expanding my range  to include my life as a Gooner, Student & soon will further venture in writing about Life as a Coffee Lover.

I hope you enjoy reading my pieces and if you have any suggestions I would really love to hear them.
