Until recently I didn’t know when wordpress.com (not wordpress.org) started – late 2005.
And this blog, signature103, was my first blog anywhere online. I started it on this day in February 2006. This makes me a kind of early adopter here.
The blog is older than my daughter so it’s a kind of journal and journey of this time.
Many of my most important thoughts are made public here. and sometimes I have been affected, both positively and negatively, by comments and interactions. But it was important to be open to the public. Withdrawing from the world is a form of fear.
I started this blog because I had read an article about a lady (whose name I don’t remember) who had put her life into the public domain. It came with dangers of course but it also was freeing. It helped her engage with the world.
I too wanted to engage with the world. And I am thankful to have done so with this blog.
Blogging hasn’t been best social media to engage with the world though but it is still an important one. It has its purpose among all the other ways we engage with the now.
So, thank you, wordpress.com. Thank you, readers.
