VOF WEEK 3 (Blogging: Icebreaker)


VOF WEEK 3 (Blogging: Icebreaker)

This is my first time to get introduced that what I'm doing is blogging, for that thanks to the World Pulse which introduced me with such a useful term and technology.In my case, blogging act as an icebreaker, before that I used to read articles by others. But as I became apart of World Pulse I became fascinated by the power of sharing and it really gives me lots of satisfaction that there are people in the world who know and listen my voice and I am not no more unheard voice, it gives me words to express and strengthen my writing skills.

However, I faced number of challenges as others, in posting my journals including the time constrains, work and family commitments, accessability to the internet and in the last but not least the language barrier.

As I am the mother of two kids, one of the ages of eleven while the other is of eight and have been working in a NGO on full time basis and belonged to a middle class family. Therefore, to fulfill my responsibilities I have to wake up early in the morning because I have to make breakfast, lunch, and make other arrangements for the day. In between all these activities, it is really a huge challenge for me to complete the given task on time.
The other challenge that I mentioned is work and family engagements they are a barrier.
Thirdly, I could only access to internet at my work hours, at homeI do not have an internet connection so it is again a problem.

Despite of all these little hurdles and challenges I loved to be a blogger because it gives me recognition to my own voice, it make me fear free, it gives me confidence and strength and give me personal view of thinking.

I think that after becoming blogger we become fairer, focused, clear vision and creative. I hope by doing all activities our voices could be synergized and become more presentable.

In the last I would like to say, “ A wish always creates a way” so don’t be afraid by the hurdles and challenges we have the strength to tackle all the problems.

Ms Nazli,

I really appreciate the effort that you have put into being a part of such a community. I have seen my mother juggle various responsibilities and I know how hard it can be to take time out for something like this. But, Kudos! Great post and I look forward to reading more of your writing :). By the way, which NGO do you work for?

I too am a mother, but only of one child (a 20 month old son) and I can barely find time to take care of the house, the volunteering, the friendships and my son. I am so inspired by your determination to be a part of the blogging world as well as World Pulse. Keep it up even if it is only every once in awhile! We need determined, strong women with voices to share and who knows who you will effect through your actions. While I imagine that you may become a bit overwhelmed by all you do, please know that we are all supporting you and are here to lift you up even more. Also, your English very good!

Thank you for being open about these hurdles and thank you for continuing to pursue what you love through these challenges.

A VOF listening voice in synergy,

VOF Week 3 Assignment

Dear Sabiha,

I had the privilege to read your third essay for Voices of the Future. It was a pleasure to read what you wrote and hear how you experience blogging in your life. You presented writing as a growing process, and I think this is a great description of it. As we write we can learn about ourselves, use our words to tell others about things they may not know and connect the dots in the world.

You were very realistic about the barriers that restrict you from blogging more. I was wondering how you try to overcome these? Are you free to blog at work? Does your family encourage your writing?

Time is indeed a limited resource that can prevent us from finishing everything we would like to accomplish. You are very optimistic that your desire to write and blog will create a way. This is a great attitude! Good luck with your final essay!

with kindness,
Carly Diaz
