Write Away, Ma’am

By Robyn Heller

Intro | Sound Off | Get Away From Me | You're Special

If you've ever kept a diary or a journal, you already know the benefits of having a record of your thoughts. Whether you keep a running day-to-day account or just jot down ideas, inspirations, observations, poems, short stories, or other tidbits, you've got a book full of pieces of your life. You've also got a book that can be accidentally left in a train station, stolen by a sibling and used as blackmail, or snooped through by a parent or roommate wondering what's really going on in your life. Maybe you're looking for some privacy, or maybe you're looking for a platform to blab your inner musings to the world. Sometimes we want to have the microphone, to be able to say whatever we want atop a soapbox to anyone who will listen. You've probably already begun paying bills, dating, doing research, having conversations, and ordering a pizza digitally; now you can digitize your thoughts too. Why not use the anonymity of the internet as your silent or broadcasted sounding board? Web logs (or “blogs” for short) and online journals are your ticket to dropping the pen and giving that writing hand a rest without having to keep all your words inside.
