At this end of this post, I submit my blog for assessment.
I am quite certain that I will continue to maintain this blog after that. It is a position I did not even consider, just a few days ago.
I was already very active on Facebook and Twitter. I was well-connected with my friends and business partners, and they with me, and I really did not see the need nor have the time to indulge in, what I then thought, was a rather long-winded process of expression.
I could have said how I felt or thought in tweet or a status update; even better, I could have tweeted something, added a #fb at the end of it, and it would automatically update my Facebook status as well.
A blog requires consistency and regularity and both require discipline. An academic stipulation has ensured that I fulfil all three requirements. It has also ensured that I maintained an objective, yes, but more so, a non-judgemental viewpoint throughout the blog.
This of course relates directly to the intended audience I would like to view my blog. As a media practitioner, I would like A Muse or Amuse to be seen as a valuable resource by my fellow practitioners. To do so, I have to ensure that my blog entries are credible and are backed by verifiable sources.
Going forward, I see myself thriving in the role of a trend-spotter or industry commentator. My job and my online interests place me in the right position to be one.
So, let me be your muse or let me amuse you.
