Blogging always seemed like something I would enjoy, yet I could never find the courage to actually post anything for the entire world wide web to see. Since our Rhetoric & Civic Life class was assigned the project of creating a passion blog, I’ve been debating topics. I’m not a baker, so a recipe blog was out of the question. I plan to singlehandedly finish an entire box of Cheez-Its in the time it takes me to write this post; therefore, a fitness blog would be a bad idea. This is a “passion blog,” so I asked myself what my passions are. It felt like the moment when someone says, “Tell me about yourself” and you suddenly forget every detail of your life. However, I think I’ve worked out a couple options. For the past several years, I’ve been motivated to understand more about mental disorders. That may sound strange, but it fascinates me that there are so many unique aspects to different disorders. It also frustrates me that there are so many misconceptions about the mentally ill. My idea was to use this blog to both learn more about mental disorders and to spread awareness about them. However, it makes sense to write about something I’m more strongly passionate about. In middle school, I became very interested in photography, and I also became interested in discovering famous photographs. It occurred to me that people recognize these famous photographs, but they generally don’t know the history of the image. I’d like to research a famous photograph for each post and describe the story behind it. As I am with every project, I’m concerned that I’ll change my mind halfway through. Hopefully one of these ideas will work. Otherwise, I’ll have nothing to write but reviews of different Cheez-It flavors.
