Volcanic Ambition

We all have 24 hours in a day.

Our default commitments probably take up anything between 6 and 22 hours of our day. Eating, sleeping, spending time with the family/friends, daily chores, earning a living and depending on who we are and what we do; many other tasks (mundane and otherwise) which require our personal and undivided attention.

Of course, most if not all of us have no idea when we are going to die.

So what of volcanic ambition?

In this age of ours, the interaction of politics, society and technology has opened up a world of opportunity for anyone who can juggle their time and resources efficiently.

What lies in store for those of us who have embarked on this modern phenomenon of becoming an all-in-one soap box?

Can the boldly written word, a picture that cries out, an impassioned audio clip or that video which seeks to minimise the disconnect between the seemingly all-powerful, unaccountable polity and it's seemingly powerless, irresponsible public inspire positive change?

In short, will conscientious blogging lead to the end of tyranny?

  1. Hmmm... just blogging ain't going to do it. People have to know about the blog- and people- I mean the masses- need to get involved and for this, a blog still isn't the right tool. Discovery is poor and access is even poorer. So unless the person has access to the Internet and has 'heard' of the blog- the chances of discovery and subsequent reaction are very poor. It is to be done better... way better to start that ripple effect.

    1. Apologies for the belated reply once again. You have a point but to date (into 2019 now), there doesn't seem to be a more versatile (text, audio, photo, video including embedding of most other social media content) platform to log one's work in an orderly manner. However, I am always open to suggestions and improvement.
