I’m a Dreamer

Aside

The blogging experience was fruitful. Through the assignment, I learned about the beautiful culture of Egypt and its admirable young citizens fighting for a better tomorrow. The assignment further opened my eyes to the world and the lens I see them through to realize how much significant impact the culture here in North America has on the world. I had no idea. Globalization is real and it has never been so influential. As a marketing major it is easier for me to appreciate the genius strategies implemented in various marketing communication strategies; however, at the same time, it is scary to see how “one culture” the world is becoming due to businesses. The world is a business. Cultures are dissipating, McDonald’s are everywhere, and people are still being exploited/oppressed. My hope is one day to see a world not run by money, competition, greed . . . but by empathetic human beings “working” harmoniously together, helping one another, striving to be the best they can be.

Let’s own our money, not our money own us.

Furthermore, I learned various technical aspects of blogging I had not known before. For example, hyperlinking URL’s into a word(s) or linking articles to my blog site. This proved to be the most challenging part of my blogging journey as I tend to be quite passionate about my thoughts and writings and I just want to write and put it out there for the world to see and not care about things like that. But, I have learned it is best to back up thoughts and theories with facts. It adds credibility and validity to one’s statements. A definite plus for future writing endeavors. A definite plus if seeking to convince one what I am saying has truth behind it.

If given the chance to do this again, I would continue to spread awareness and knowledge the best I can. Obvious, in a working environment, I will maintain the professional appearance of the blog. Moreover, I will definitely be more confident maintaining a blog if my employer asks, given the experience I’ve gained from this assignment, but my drive will always be to share the wisdom I have, how ever small it may be. At the end of the day, it is what pays me the most and brings me more happiness.

As a matter of fact, I just might continue writing in my blog post BA 444. I sincerely like doing it. Many people have liked my blogs, I’ve gained a few followers, and even had one of my blogs re-posted. To me, if I am able to reach at least one person . . . teach them something empowering and enlightening, that is success.

Knowledge is power.
