"VOF Week 3: (Blogging Can Be So Much More When You Find The Right Community)".

Due to my knowledge that blogging allows people to express themselves freely about anything, i kind of kept my distance because i rarely know my readers and i believe for my readers to know so much about me we must have something in common that we share and with this in mind i never thought of the positive side of blogging.

Blogs are communicative, educative, informative and at the same time it contains deep sensibility which made me feel in secure (in security/privacy are my barriers) when i come across people's blog that i believe is personal and should be kept private, not until i found PulseWire which i see as a community where everyone in our own different ways share a common dream that leads to one Goal "Change". It makes me feel safe and at home.

Cost to have access to the internet and time are my challenges to blogging but could be overcome now that i know that with my blogs i could be Heard and if i Speak the voices of women and unborn generations will be heard that will bring about change, peace, development and make the world a better place, then time constraints would not be a challenge.

All i need is to be empowered with the knowledge and tools that will enable me to Speak and Be Heard positively where ever the tide of life takes me to.

You've found a place

IB,

Now that you have found PulseWire it sounds like you feel that right place to share. I feel that common dream that you describe. I like what you say about unborn generations finding change, peace, development.

Keep blogging...I will be listening.

Warmly,

Laura

Comments on Assignment 3

Hi IB,

I enjoyed reading your post and think that your initial concerns about privacy and security in blogs are ones that many women share with you, myself included.

It was so great to read that you were able to overcome these barriers when you found the right environment at PulseWire. I think your story is an example to women facing these same barriers in terms of using Web 2.0 tools but can also be example to women for offline activities too - finding a safe environment, both online and offline, empowers women and gives us a stronger voice.
