I am and always was a freethinker, that's why I have decided to focus mainly in this blog on contrarian ideas and opinions. I think this society is pushing everybody to take sides in debates, instead of letting people think freely. Contrarian ideas and opinions, are not popular and are often subject to criticism. But these opinions and ideas are necessary to dispel the horde thinking of society. Yes, we live in a society were popular opinions dominate and even bully the opposite opinions. Celebrities and so called "persons of authority" make and promote opinions on behalf of the entire society. And funnily enough, most of these opinions are not valid, they might be popular or even ideal, but they are simply opinions not based on any scientific or fairness criteria. I will try to focus hard to find contratian opinions and try to share them, and defend them, and i'm sure i'll stumble on many.
This is my 100’s post, to celebrate it i’ll write about Blogging!
In these times when Media outlets are supposed to be independent & neutral, while they have proven themselves again and again not to be, blogs are offering some fresh air of free and independent opinions!
Sometime ago, the media used to care about small and medium businesses, we used to see reports or interviews on TV and articles in the press, this has decreased dramatically, instead businesses are relying now on Blogs outreach to tell their stories, if this indicates something, it definitely indicates the smaller and smaller role mainstream media have in our societies!
More and more people are getting their news from websites instead of the TV station, and more and more people are getting their news from websites that are not affiliated with media conglomerates!
How i started blogging….
This is my first blog, or at least the first blog i really blogged in!
My first real blog was a microsoft live (or whatever it’s name was), eventhough i did not really use it but i can say that at least i have posted a couple blog posts on it!
Then i had a blog on blogger i think, but again was useless because did not really blog using it!
But since i found the wordpress iphone app, i really started blogging! Maybe not on a daily basis, but still frequently!
Today i celebrate my 50th blog post! Hurray!
(this was in draft so it became number 52)
