Thanks, Megan.

I have finally opened my eyes and realized why Mr. Raisdana mentioned every lesson how important it was for us to write a post on our blog once in a while.

Before reading Megan's blog, I thought of this space to be somewhere I talk about my political views, book reviews on books I don't/do like, a place to basically sound super smart so that your peers can read it and praise your intelectual thoughts through literature. I realize now, that is is more than that.

I am going to start treating my blog as Tumblr. Everyone loves Tumblr. I love Tumblr. The main reason I love Tumblr, is because even though its a photo sharing site, I can express my thoughts as boldly as I want to and not be criticized for it. I think I will start doing that on this blog too, minus the swearing and nonsensical grammar. So I hope to be looking at days of drawn on rants  and obsessing.

  1. Antara, I am incredibly honoured to be part of this blog post. I'm glad that you finally understand blogging because I love it dearly. This place, for me, is one where I can do whatever, talk about whatever, express my opinions. You don't need to think of your audience that much. When I write, I write for myself, and only afterwards when I get comments is when I realise that I am writing to people. It's a brilliant place. I'm glad you've realised that.

  3. I always thought of these blogs as a bridge between the social spaces you use on your own like Tumblr and Facebook and the academic formal writing.

    A place with more depth that FB and not as serious as "school: stuff. You got the write idea. I am not I can keep up intellectually. Your posts always make me think. I always read, but cannot always comment.
