i love the web

The Internet has streamlined the world village to a mere community, a man's world where women can also be heard and gain from it.
I am a young Nigerian graduate. I had no job and no source of income even after marriage until I browsed my way through gaining the knowledge of web design and blogging. I learnt yo design web sites, blogs and I even air my views as an doing now and thanks to the internet. There are some of us women who wise to be heard when they have relevant things to say now the internet is the platform yo be heard and hear others, know what is happening in the world and things that are obtainable for us women. I am happy because its no longer dark out there and not much mistakes are made these days. We see, hear, and say the truth even when you don't want to be seen.
I love the web, its really a platform where women can have and be what they want to be and still be original which is one of the values of women that was taken away from us, originally, is what the internet has helped me to gain back and manymany other women has as well and I love the internet for that and many more opportunities are yet to be achieved through the web.
The web has brought us all women together to speak and be heard, let's stay together and achieve more than just been heard. I love the web.

Inspiring!

"Let's stay together and achieve more than just been heard". I've just loved this line. Thank you so much for your inspiring post! I also celebrate your spirit in the constant search for a voice on its own, and the actions you've taken to put that voice into action.
