VOF Week 3: (Analyzing Challenges to Overcome).


Blogging has been a popular place to share personal opinions or thoughts. Before using the internet I did not know about it. While I was searching about some social issues of Bangladesh for presentation in my grammar class, I saw a page about some social issue called bangla blog. I started to read the page and gradually my interest was rising to know about it. It was a blog where I could write in bangla. I wanted to comment there but when I wanted to be member it was require providing my phone number which blocked me to think again. After that I decided to not open any blog. That was the first idea about blogging.

After that I talked about it with my friends and I have known that many of my friends do not know about it. Some of them say it is wasting of time; some are not interested about it, some of them are afraid to share thoughts because in some places in Bangladesh treat using internet is a bad habit. Access of internet use is the common challenge for us. Then I talked to my father about it and he also does not know very much about it. He encouraged me to use it.

As I was thinking about it our university has a capacity building class named blog shop. I applied there but I was not chosen but my curiosity leaded me to read about my friend’s blogs. I know how to open a blog but enough time, effort, much knowledge are some challenges to have a blog. Though sometimes I wanted to open but when I was thinking about writings articles and what to write I gave up it.

I think knowledge about using internet and blog is the most important issue to overcome the challenges. To know about the importance is another solution. If I was aware about the using I would not stopped myself to comment in that blog. For my personal challenges I think encouragement is the most important point to overcome my shyness and fear to open a blog. If I had a group of friends who were interested in blogging, I would have courage’s to open it. Critical thinking is essential to share important issues which can be solution of finding articles.

In future I will not have many challenges because now I know how to raise my voice now I have more encouragement than past my friends are also becoming aware about their rights. I hope effective using of the benefits of blogging will increase help women to overcome other challenges in society as well as in personal life.

Analyzing Challenges to Overcome

Dear Nipo,

Your words are very sincere and I hope that you continue to search for ways to blog or communicate with others through this media. it seems that it can help with the shyness of communicating and meeting new people who would like to learn more about where you are from, going through and challenges. Keep writing and meeting other women through this wonderful media.

Kindest regards,
