Twitter is a terrific way to communicate quickly to as many people as care read the tweet. But oh, that 140 character limit is tough. Yes, it sharpens the mind and the editorial skills. But some things deserve more than 140 characters. And so, Perspectives in born.
I made the leap to a blog.
I found a web hosting service I liked — BlueHost.
Next came the WordPress.
Between the two of them a blog is becoming a reality.
There is so much helpful information on the Internet, on BlueHost and WordPress. For that I am grateful. But there is so much to learn. My hope is to not make too many mistakes, missteps, or make myself look like a fool — especially in the beginning.
The driving force that finally made me do this is my strong, deep and enduring passion for animals. I am opposed to animal cruelty in any form, and that includes hunting, and believe deeply that each animal life is precious and as worthy of respect as human life.
I tweet a lot about animals. That includes those who abuse, main, kill them as well as those, like me, who love them, respect them and want to be a “voice for the voiceless.”
At the same time, there is so much that catches my attention. This is an election year in America. Violence is spiraling out of control in our cities. Nations still find war far easier than diplomacy. Etc. Etc. Etc.
A blog presents the opportunity to break free — at least occasionally — from the rigid but necessary, I guess, confines of Twitter’s 140 characters. For Twitter I am grateful. And I will continue to be a loyal user. It’s just nice to know that I can say more, express more, write more when I want.
I’ll post this. Critique it for myself. Fine tune my plugins, themes, appearance of the blog. And then get to work. Like all the people who call this planet home I have a unique perspective. I am going to take a second look at this world and share my perspective.
What a great time to be alive.
