Hello Drastic Plastic readers, Barbara from Momographica here. How are you dealing with the end of the hot season? I've never been an admirer of warm weather so I always welcome Fall as the best of seasons. Also, I was born during the beginning of Fall so this season holds a special place in my heart. It brings back good childhood memories. It's a nostalgic time where I ponder about my life and what's generally going in it.
This Fall inspired me to speak about on why I became a blogger. I was sitting at my desk with a mug of wonderfully spiced tea next to me and I thought that I really wanted to tell you about it and that I wanted to hear why you became one, if you are one. What about sharing our stories? I hope you are in!
In my high school years I used to keep a very small journal and website in my first language (Italian). It had been about Japanese animation, which was, back then, one of my top passions. It also helped me to gain some friend who shared my same interests. It had been great because I was lonely during those years. I dropped it when I went to University, because I had been too busy to keep it but it's still a good memory.
I didn't put myself into blogging again before last year, when I decided to open my current blog after attending a BYW course that a friend of mine recommended. For some reason many interests collided at that time: I enjoyed the course very much and I was looking for a place where to share my works and ideas as well as the things I learned.
I strongly felt that I wanted to interact with people on the network once again. After snobbing the internet community for years, I came to realize that now it had to offer so much more information and beautiful things that I could not be left out.
Once a person told me that if you aren't on the Internet, you don't exist. I am not sure how much of this it true but I can tell that being able to tell what you think and express what you believe to people who are interested in what you are going to say it's a wonderful feeling.
So, what is your story, fellow blogger?
