Living Amused has entered its second year; leaving behind a year that proved to me, time can actually fly. One day there was nothing and the next -at the very least- there was something.
What is a blog?
- Merriam-Webster dictonary’s definition: a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer
- Britannica Online Encyclopedia’s definition: blog, in full Web log or Weblog, online journal where an individual, group, or corporation presents a record of activities, thoughts, or beliefs… “To blog” is the act of composing material for a blog. ..The “blogosphere” is the online universe of blogs.
And yes, there are so many blogs and bloggers that a universe is named after us!
I had never any intention to become a blogger. The idea was sort of “beaten down” on me by my sister, Parisa- but with all her good intentions. I quickly warmed up to the idea and eventually took a deep breath and dived into the blogoshphere.
… And then there was the work! I remember clearly how much “elbow grease” has gone into creating this website. The easiest part was deciding on the blog’s name- Living Amused- it is after all, my prime goal in life. The most tedious work was educating myself with the technical aspect of it all- from setting up and running a website to self-hosting and so on. I have learned a good deal; but -as is the case with knowledge- not enough. It still feels like I am at the grammar school level-trying to skip a grade or two behind teacher’s back.
I was looking over the past year’s posts and pictures- 193 of them to be exact. 365 days of one year can be short or long, depending on how we live them. I think when we put true effort in accomplishing our goals, try our hand at new experiences and don’t let ourselves stand still; our year can be sweetly short and brightly colored. Mine was sort of like that, as I was inspired and not afraid to chart new waters. Thanks Parisa, thanks Soheil (my husband) and thanks to all who supported and (actually) read my thoughts and ideas- original or not, entertaining or far from it, well written or else.
