Instinctually, blogging is a self-centred act. It usually centres around the self and attempts to amplify the voice of the writer.
Here’s my epiphany
What if blogging can be used to shed light on important issues and amplify voices of individuals that need to be empowered?
What if we can use our platform to give an opprotunity for someone else to build theirs?
Now that would be a powerful tool to harness.
How to amplify & empower others?
For me, I’ll choose to do writing as an act of sharing about others’ thoughts, ideas, lessons, and vision.
That act in and of itself empowes me as an individual to lend a helping hand to others. It also empowers me to support and produce ideas that our outside of my own thinking.
Blogging as a self-reflective tool is overrated. It’s time to make it a tool for empowerment and advocacy.
