I never really saw myself as a blogger, I was always overwhelmed by how many people are doing it. The whole point is to get a lot of people to read it, right? And I definitely had no clue how to write something so interesting that it would bring in a huge number of hits.
After a while though, the whole idea took a shift. I was having so many ideas come to me that I needed a place to write them all down. I honestly believe that social theory has the power to transform people’s lives – if ignorance is the root cause of all sorts of abuse and hatred, then surely sociology could help to alleviate some of that threat?
Anyway, since I’m now graduated I wanted this blog to be a way for me to coherently get down my thoughts on a particular issue which takes my fancy. And if anyone who reads it finds it helpful then all the better!
