Blogging and blogs have caused quite a furrow in recent times. With personable individuals like Patricia Delille entering into the debate and denouncing blogging as a destructive tool. This shows that people are beginning to sit up and take notice of blogs and blogging in South Africa. This is one of the most useful skills I learnt from the world of work programme.
As Susan Arthur, another WOW 2007 team member wrote so eloquently in her blog(www.susanarthur.blogspot.com), blogging gives you the opportunity to share yourself through your thoughts and opinions. It also inspires debate. I haven't been able to stop blogging since I started over seven weeks ago. I've kept journals and diaries on and off over the past years. This medium is so much better and more versatile. Now, everytime I listen to the news or read something, or hear something interesting, I begin to think about the implications to me and the public at large. Naturally, I immediately want to blog about it.
