Connexicon is an amalgamation of two words: connection and lexicon. Life is about the connections we make, the moments we share, the ideas we mash together into something original. This blog is my attempt to develop a language, a lexicon, around the connections that have and do shape my life – every day.
This blog is inspired by the ideas of Seth Godin – one of my favourite bloggers and writers. Particularly this:
Everyone should learn to write in public. Get a blog […] Do it every day. Every single day. Not a diary, not fiction, but analysis. Clear, crisp, honest writing about what you see in the world. Or want to see. Or teach (in writing). Tell us how to do something.
I may stray away from his advice to avoid fiction and diary-type entries. Fiction soothes my mind, and most of my writing is pretty personal; I’m OK with that. Also, I may skip a day here or there. But I will commit myself to writing clearly, crisply and as honestly as possible – even if it scares me.
This blog is my sandbox, my play-place in the public eye. If you like what you read here, consider following me on Twitter @connexicon
