Blogging nowadays, is a common thing for millennials. As long as you have the passion, the gadget (cellphone, tablet, or computer), and of course, the time to write your article, you can definitely be an instant blogger.
Because of the power of internet, the vast exchange of information from one part of the world to another is a not roadblock anymore but it introduces a different form of concern: diminishing the thin barrier between different professions related to writing: the blogger, and the journalist.
Both of it (blogging, and mass media) pertains to the sharing of information whether fictional (literature) or factual (documentaries or straight information), and it is the indeed the responsibility of the writer (blogger or journalist) to relay the information in an ethical manner. Fake news is a BIG NO! NO!
However, if the said article just relays the information straight to the readers with no intention, purpose or persuasive action, then that information might just be useless because it just entertain, and it doesn’t interact with its readers.
The people of the world need not just passionate bloggers, but passionate/ethical bloggers who will help our country to broadcast not just the writer’s personal interests but also the solution to the different socio-political or economic issues that our country is facing. You might think that a simple blog article is not as powerful as resolving the crimes (corruption, drugs, human trafficking, etc.). You are probably wrong because one must not estimate the true power of writing. As long as the article could influence, and empower its readers to create a change or to put into action the suggested resolutions which have been discussed in the said article, then its power and ability to withstand a problem is greater than just a single cop killing a suspected drug addict on the street.
Why would I want to be a #BlogOPPOlis Creator Scholar? My answer is just simple, I want to be a writer with an ethical purpose. They say that the passion of true writing is easier said than done, and that is what I want to prove. However, the idea can be changed because I believe that Blogging is more than just a passion since it must serve its purpose.
