Four years into blogging and I ponder, am I doing what I intended to do when I started it?
When I started blogging, I used to write about the things I love to do or thoughts I love to say without having to care whether people read it or not, as long as my thoughts were out there. A few months into it that I got introduced to a blogging organization through which I met new friends and learned that blogging was actually more than just self-expression.
At that time, I was comfortable that it felt like home. I was happy to have discovered something I love to do and be able to enjoy doing it with people of the same interest. However, I got too familiar in this blogging organization that led me to be more exposed to both the good and bad side of it, that I later on realized that in order for me to grow and improve, the time has arrived to finally step out of my comfort zone.
Out with the old, in with the new.
All the events that happened in the past were stringed as if they were telling me to go back to the real purpose why I blog - to influence and make a difference. And I'm glad that I discover a new community of bloggers, vloggers and microbloggers, or better yet call them as influencers, that can help me fulfill this purpose.
At times in life, we have to make a choice to take risks, to welcome new opportunities and to venture into new avenues where we think we can develop our potentials even more. It all starts with a decision to change.
Changing times call for changing demands, and the world needs not only bloggers who blog, but influencers who can create a positive impact not only in their sites but most importantly, in the outside community. The world needs influencers who can actually ignite a trend of ideas and values, and not just for advertisements and company promotions only.
And as a part of the Davao Digital Influencers, Inc, I will strive to make a positive impact to others so that they may truly appreciate the real essence of blogs the way I see it when I started one, and this is my first step to a better change.
Today marks a milestone in my life wherein I'll be welcomed to this organization on its Grand Launch and Acquaintance Party that will happen later on at 6pm at the Polo Bistro, Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City.
