A Chronic Voice: So Long, 2016, and Thanks for All the (Poisoned) Fish

Thank You for Your Support

As the year comes to an end, I’d like to take a moment to thank every single one of you for your support thus far. To those who have been vocal – resharing my content and raising awareness for various other causes – thank you for using your voice for good. To the quiet ones – while you don’t declare your ‘likes’, I know that you are the ones who read and reread, trying to understand the topic in depth. Thank you for your compassion.

Lessons Learned, and More to Come

On my part, I’ve gained a lot of useful insight from others, and learned more about blogging in general. Perhaps the biggest lesson is that blogging is even more time consuming than what I had imagined it to be 😉 The hours I spend on it is equivalent to working full time, but without the income. The output still seems meagre despite the input, but I don’t think that it is a thankless job. I enjoy writing, and what they say about helping others is true – you end up learning more in the end.

There is so much noise and fear of repurcussion in this modern world, but I believe there is a place for your voice and mine. In fact, I think it is even more crucial that we speak up because of this. We need to tell our tales; stories of strength, hope, despair and joy – all of it. Stories of our shared humanity – to remember what it means to be human. Every little bit counts, and I hope we can join forces to create something really beautiful out of all this mess.
