Fun Fact: This blog originally started as a summer assignment for my high school reading class. Crazy, right? Well, what is even crazier is the love I gained for it during my summer vacation.
I had always heard of blogs as being enjoyable for both the blogger and their followers; and above all the opinions about a blog was the view that it opened up a new avenue of communication and expression for anyone. Yes, any one with access to a computer can set up a blog and cast their thoughts across the boundless Internet. The concept is inspiring when you think of it in those terms…is it not?
While I was writing the posts for my class I wondered why I kept making separate posts–these were the Miscellaneous posts–and asking myself if a blog was really my next avenue of writing. As I continued this doubt shortened and a new confidence took its place: the blog became another source of release in life.
So, Thoughts of a Southpaw became more than a summer assignment–and I have valued it since then. A blog is a good form of release.
