So I have been trying to create another site, http://designingcircuitsandlife.tumblr.com/
to record some technical lessons as I go through my course in Integrated Circuit Design, an online portfolio of some sort. Which is why I moved out of Blogger. I planned to shift my attention thoroughly to technical discussions (which was more a tool to understand the subjects myself rather than provide information to others). I however noticed that personal blogs left on me a deeper impact than I thought they would. And yes, I can't leave it like that.
It is a stage of experiments for me on the blogging front and the problem that I often find with experimentation in every area (especially in blogs) is that you have too little time to try things out to your satisfaction. I tried, but do not wish to monetize the blog or post a series of rants. I seem to have gotten over that phase (or not!). The objective now is to give out content that is useful to others. For free. Just like I believe education at any level should be free.(I strongly believe that!) That's the ultimate goal. Technically, I would sincerely like to devote a lot of time & attention to developing a blog purely for System on Chip architecture and Intellectual Property Law, a couple courses that I recently have joined and liked so much as to have almost decided to work on it in the future. In the future, because sooner than later I will have other subjects to study. I will have more things to explore. Personally, I would like to write on the non technical books, gadgets and probably do some good fiction pieces. Good, being the keyword. This 'good' itself is keeping me from writing randomly, therefore writing at all.
This reminds me, I have been a part of the BlogAdda Book Reviews Program for some time now and have recommended it to every blogger that I know, reads books. It has become a part of me. There are times when I meet people and they wow at the free books that I get to review. Those are good times. But when other 'reviewers'discuss their work, it is amazing. I was dismayed while moving abroad for further studies at the thought of not being able to continue with the Reviews program. But with recent communication it seems like I still get to be a part of it. (yay!) Can't wait to read and review the next book.
ANOTHER very important part of me is YouthKiAwaaz. Whenever I talk about/show my YKA work to someone their reactions make me brim with pride. My personal thanks to the karta dharta
Mr. Anshul Tewari and my editor Ms. Shraddha Sankhe (they are cool folks!) Thanks also to a certain Mr. Roy who initiated me unto YKA. Writing has always been very important (and I have no idea how or why), even though we share a love hate relationship. I have a lot of ideas which I would be working on... at least try out. It was only an 8 week writing internship with YKA but I ended up learning a lot more writing articles on issues that plague us, than of course, writing random stuff like this
on this blog. NGOs in Ahmedabad were kind enough to answer my calls and allow me to interview them, even though it was for a relatively small assignment. I had become more sensitive to news than ever before. And that habit continues.
I wish to contribute to The Nanyang Chronicle. I'm too new in the system to know about the issues that we are facing as students. This negates my chances of being able to acutally 'pitch in' a story. But let's see how it turns up. Will have written SOMETHING for sure.
Now that the areas of interest begin to take a rather concrete form, it will take months, if not years to create a place befitting the ideas. Fingers crossed in the hope of actually taking it that far.
