Call me a BLOG VIRGIN; although I am not a stranger on this subject – I have contributed and commented on many a blogs – but this is officially my first written blog. Hooray!!!

We are in 2010; the world as we know it is constantly changing and we are becoming increasingly caught up in each other’s lives. We are either on Twitter, MySpace, Hi5, Facebook or some other social networking site where we interact with each other. Some of us are so addicted to these networking sites, we find ourselves on a few of them at a time — A confession; I am a Facebook addict and you’ll also find me on one or two other social networking sites.

I decided to join the many bloggers around the globe because I had a lot to say about everything and I promised myself to do better on that front this year. To borrow from the famous Mahatma Gandhi; I want to “be the change I want to see” and also because we all have a voice within us which needs to be heard by everyone and anyone who is willing to listen. We cannot rely only on our governments, leaders, elected officials and peers to be our eyes and ears – we have to look out for ourselves and each other on the social front, as well as on health and economics, on Africa and the world as a whole. We live in a global village after all and therefore need to have dialogue, share our views, opinions and ideas and also learn from each other. There is an Akan saying that goes: “minku me trim, e pro” – Knowledge not shared is wasted.

So let’s dialogue with one another. May the almighty be with us all in this New Year and the years to come.

Happy blogging!
