Blog Post 1

A blog is essential in expressing your thoughts and opinions to others in a creative manner. Everyone has a different outlook on life and should deserve to have their perspective addressed if appropriate. A blog in my definition would be an informal or discussion site used to confer something. Tumblr is a popular blog site, where many celebrities share photos, comments, and other interesting pieces of info that might interest their fans. Blogs are one way to communicate with the whole world. It is just as popular as social media sites, such as Facebook. While providing a form of knowledge or insight on an issue or an person. Blogs also play a part in our daily lives. Politics, for example, is partially influenced by blogging sites. Political blogs unveiled a  controversy between U.S Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott on how he used racially motivated comments in a party. Lott's critics posted this incident on various political blogs. Eventually these blogs reached the attention of the public, forcing Lott to resign from his position as majority leader.  In my opinion, a blog is just as important as the daily news. Blogs are the new form of social interaction for exchanging what we know. 

In my own blog, I plan to express the life and philosophies of Bruce Lee. He lived an  life worth remembering  in such a short life span. Although Bruce, himself, may be forgotten, his contributions to martial arts and cinema in general have not. He was a man who united all people, from all walks of life, which should be deemed evitable  during a time of war and racial discrimination. It did not matter what ethnicity you were from, you were a Bruce Lee fan. He awed the public with his amazing feats, such as his two finger push ups as well as his one-inch punch. His philosophies on every aspect of life provided insight for those who did not notice all of the heavenly glory that surrounds them. His movies are what revolutionized action genre of cinema. Bruce truly expressed himself, not allowing nothing to hold him back from persuing his goal in achieving stardom.  Sadly, Bruce passed away at the age of 33 due to an allergic reaction to an aspirin he took. However his legacy still lives on within all of us. I believe that writing a blog is the least I can do for a man who made history.
