Blog is the Wrong Word I have made over 4000 Blog entries in this online diary of sorts, I must have misread the instructions.
I thought a Blog was an online Log.
“A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log")” - Wikipedia.org
Blog “A frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links.” ----- MarketingTerms.com (Funny, they put this in the right site.) ----- A Blog is more about Marketing and nothing about feeling or thoughts.
What is a Log? “record of journey: a record of a journey made by a ship or aircraft, detailing all events, or the book in which it is kept” - Encarta Encyclopedia Dictionary
I cannot find any Travel Logs, I can only find people who are writing Travel Articles.
I know they spend hour if not days working on the perfect way to write something that is not authentic. I personally know I cannot learn much from staged writing, I need to hear the true story, the true feelings, the unedited version to know the person.
I feel bad doing a spell check or proofread, this is not me, this is a machine changing me. I make many spelling and grammatical problems, this is me, do you want to know me?
I think I should change the name, I do not write travel articles, I spend 15 minutes typing in my feeling and thoughts. If I wanted to write an online magazine, I would write articles.
I find writing my diary online interesting, it forces me to think more clearly, I have no desire to be too clear, this is not me, I am human. I often wonder if the world cares to hear the noise made of real humans, or do we now need a steady stream of promoters of self.
I truly enjoy putting all the links below, they help me, they reassure me that I am in a learning, that I am trying to understand my world.
