Before you tell me I’m crazy, hear me out:
What if everybody who has Internet connection in the world and knows how to write would write a personal blog? Even those who don’t have Internet, could write it in a notebook and later go to a nearest library to type it out. Even the act of writing down your thoughts in a notebook with a pencil or a pen changes things completely. I strongly believe that the world would be a better place.
Everybody could write just 3 things: what their dream is, what they are struggling with and what they have found inspiring today.
Basically, this is the process of documenting someone’s life.
My nephew who will be in 12th grade next year could write about the things that he learned at school. He and his girlfriend are fascinated about photography right now. They could write about that too. His dad who is a doctor could write about the operations he had that day and about his hobbies of fishing and para-gliding.
My mom could write about how she teaches kids to draw. My aunt who is retired art teacher is drawing with watercolor on silk. She could write about that. My friend who is suffering from Multiple Schlerosis could write about his day-to-day experiences with this illness. Or if this is too painful, perhaps about his hobby, what helps him not to think about the MS.
My parents-in-law could write about how they grow vegetables in their garden. My friend who recently quit his main job could write about his struggles to find new profitable passions that might turn into another income stream for him.
So that’s only the people whom I met or thought about in the last few days.
What about others? What about billions of people on the planet?
Oh, and by the way, by blogging I don’t mean just writing words. Creating could be done in text, pictures, audio, video or any combination.
You see, I believe every human being is a creator but a lot of people don’t know that. They accept the rules that society has given them without even questioning them.
Many people never had a chance to speak up about the things that matter to them. To have a public voice.
A lot of world’s problems would go away if people found the guts to tell the world what it is they are struggling with or find inspiring.
Now you can tell me I’m crazy.
