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.
Welcome to my blog. :-)
