You guys know the first part of this story. I joined a Social Media for Business class and we were supposed to write weekly blogs. But then as time went on I started to noticed few things:
1)We are all Connected
I decided to post things that I really like and care about like my family, my church
and friends. Sometimes I think that my friends are specific to me (cause nobody else knows them online) so no one would relate when I spoke about them. Surprisingly enough, I got many comments when I blogged about my friends. Although I knew some people liked Interior design I didn’t realize how many people around me liked it too. As I read other people’s blog I realized that I had a small passion in my heart for things my classmates felt passionate about. Yes of course I realized that the world is filled with people just like me, but blogging really proved it.
It seems like I share something in common with just about everybody in the class. We all share a common string of similarities that I would have never learned about if it weren’t for the blog.
2)We all have similar values
As I would read about my classmate’s families and personal stories, I realized that I share a lot of common values with many people in the class. I loved Simon’s blog about his father and I loved Rucchicas blog about moving to NYC being far away from her home country. All of similar experiences are things that build my character, my value and ultimately my life. Its like James Cameron’s Avatar; we are all intricately connected despite our differences.
3) It lets you join a different world
This is when you get to discover things you are passionate about that you would not have otherwise. Like Greek Culture, after reading few of Sophia’s blogs about her heritage, I realized just how similar Greeks are to Colombians! It really sparked my interest in learning about their customs and traditions. I also realized I really wanted to watch Making A Murderer on Netflix after reading Simon’s favorite Netflix’s Original series.
And the obvious, I realized I really love blogging 🙂
I actually wanted to have this be my last post so we can all reminisce about our class but I decided to write it now while it was fresh and organic in my heart.
