VOF Week 3 (Blogging and my noshtalgia)

Just now I am nostalgic. I am remembering my days in Sweden. Why? First I heard about blog while I was in Sweden. I learned it in my electronic journalism course from Stockholm University. I still remember those days ….I was excited. Yes it was really exciting for me to learn how to make our group blog since it was our assignment. I can also remember that I didn’t want to give my photo in the blog because of internet hacking and privacy matters. I was afraid since I cared my social system where if anyone misuse my information and photo I will be the victim because of being a girl from Bangladesh!

To me blogging is really a good support to share and express my idea since buying a personal website is still expensive for me. But here in Bangladesh it’s really difficult to effort internet for most of the people. But I can, since I am in privileged group. And I know that I have to utilize this opportunity in a constructive way. I am on my way. I also face electricity problem while I work in internet and blog. Also what I am finding that few peoples are misusing the blogging opportunities which sometimes make me afraid to express my feeling in blog. I think security should be more confirmed for all internet and blogger user.
