In the recent past, I have been asking myself…
“Should I start a blog now? Or have I missed the boat with blogging? If blogging is still relevant, will it be beneficial for my readers? I guess I should … why should I start a blog?”
This was obviously not the first time I asked these questions to myself.
Eventually, I decided to put all speculations to rest and picked up my pen (literally). My decision to start a blog was influenced by the fact that my daughter decided to pursue her Mass Communication course. I flattered myself by believing that she wanted to follow her father’s footsteps.
It was then that I thought, with a fulfilling career of more than 2 decades in the field of Corporate Communication, it was my responsibility to create a better understanding and enhance the knowledge for other aspirants pursuing Communications as a career.
The following reasons were persuasive enough for me come to this decision:
A – A place for me to share my story, experiences and ideas in the field of communications
B – An opportunity to create a community and a place for like-minded people to come and interact around these ideas, stories and experiences
C – A place for me to express certain aspects of my professional life and what I was doing and learning as a communicator
D – lastly it looked like fun
As I start this journey, I have no real vision of where it may lead. I don’t know if I would succeed, but it is my way of giving something back to the industry which I was a part of for over twenty years. I hope that some of my stories and experiences would be meaningful, rewarding and hopefully inspire, educate and give others a sense of belonging. I would also like to thank all my mentors, bosses and friends who have helped me on this journey.
The objective of this blog is to maximise reader experience, therefore, I encourage you to please send me your inputs and feedback so that I can share more authentic, compelling and relevant stories.
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
