Who gave me a blog?

It’s that time very year that I decide I’m going to start blogging again, but this year, I see it differently. When I was programming this website I made a decision not to build a blogging system into it, because every time I started blogging as a hobby in the past, I would get crushed because simply nobody would even bother looking at my posts. But over the past 3 years, I’ve become much more acquainted with Twitter, and every day I use the little platform I have to speak out about things I find interesting, from programming, to LGBTQ+ issues, to politics.

After a while on Twitter, I realised that, to me, it doesn’t matter how many people read what you’re saying, it matters that I said it to begin with. Writing gives me great satisfaction, I am a very opinionated person, and writing is something passionate and close to my heart. Which leads me to this: Twitter is a mess, and it’s not a good place for healthy communication and discussion. I cannot write what I’d like to write on Twitter, just because of how hard it is to speak extensively, and how easily people get riled up. At least on my own site, things are a lot more calm, and I can have honest discussions with you guys, more safely.

So here we are, on my brand-new blog. Hopefully in the future I’ll be writing plenty about things which are on my mind, and if I don’t, then I may have just forgotten about this place, maybe give me a poke about it! I’ve also built a ‘leave a note for me’ button, in which you guys can send me a comment for me to read, could be feedback, or your own opinions, it doesn’t matter! But I’ll be reading every single note you guys push forward to me.

Hope to hear from you in the future, and thanks for reading. Have a nice day! Maia.
