Oh to blog…for a long time I often wondered why people blogged. I never understood why so many people enjoyed reading and creating blogs. Growing up, reading was so not my favorite thing to do by a far and it was not a good thing to hate doing. Over the last couple of years, I’ve been pursuing my bachelors, all while dating one of the most intelligent men I know. These two combined put a lil pressure on me to start reading and enjoy it, at least little. Through it all, I think the two have had some influence to say the least. It seemed almost like I woke up one day and I found myself needing a little more. I started caring about things I never cared about. I started paying attention to politics, local and national, and issues that I saw in the world around me. I really started to pursue thing that I cared about.

Thanks to the internet and the digital social age, I have been able to add all those thing in my life on the go. Thanks to the internet and many news apps on my phone, I stay pretty informed. To add to it, I fell in love with the site MySpace. Later, I was introduced to Facebook which quickly pushed the MySpace out-of-the-way. Then came YouTube. I have always had a passion for photography and video making. Then came Titter and now WordPress. The crazy thing is not that I leave one for the other, rather I just add to them all. I have found that each serve to allow me a different outlet to express myself and trust me, if you knew me, you would know that I always have plenty to express about everything.

So, to blog for me now seems like it’s the next thing to do. I have wanted to try blogging for a while now, so I think it time. I just hope that since I have decided to make the committment that I stick to it. I remember each of the other outlets I started, seemed slow and un-fulfilling at first, but after sticking with them, I learned that I truly enjoy what I get from them. I plan to be personal and open here, as this will be MyOpenOutlet. I hope to grow a little, learn a lot, and enjoy myself a lot along the way.
