Blogging With Purpose

I’m going to blog. I have been mulling the idea of a blog for a while now. But then I asked myself WHY, and couldn’t really find a reason. In the end, it was just something else in my life that would be pitting itself against the minutes I have left on earth. Ultimately, I knew it would be a failure. Enter purpose…

So what is my purpose. I have recently found a new purpose, for me and my blog. It’s mostly self serving, but my hope is that it will also be helpful to others. I want to be better. I want to have an impact. For a long time I have been okay with the status quo - being satified with what I already knew, learning a little at a time as needed, but not with any particular aim, except to be able to do my job. I’m changing that. The target is a little wide at the moment, but I plan to narrow it’s focus over time. The purpose is to learn and to blog on that learning. My hope is that blogging about what I’m learning will give me:

  1. a reason to blog
  2. facilitate better learning
  3. help others who may eventually come accross the blog

For the moment, it’s more of a soliloquy.
