Personal blog philosophy

Refining the purpose of my personal blog


My website is a digital pillar with which I anchor my experiences. I can systematically scour parts of my life that are interesting and formalise them in a technologically proficient language to communicate the extent of my being. It is a supplement to my identity that starts with zero information and requires thought to translate the physical world (or fleeting mind) into a legible account of my mind and the world around me.

My blog is also a mechanism for prompting memory and introspection. Without some form of tracking, life can move too fast that I forget exactly how I filled up my time. My blog serves as a high level 'north star', which provides a way to systematically build a portfolio of work which represents the efforts I exert throughout my days.
