Why Focus on So Many Issues? Inside N.A.H. Part 5
Recently, I published a note about 12 different questions I was asked about my use of Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian as it relates to combining Social Work and social media.
I then asked you to think of your own responses to those questions as they relate to you. I hope you’ll share them with me after you’ve given them some thought.
In the coming days I’ll attempt to respond to those questions through a series I’m calling “Inside N.A.H.” This is the fifth post of that series.
Question 5: Why do you cover many issues on your blog, instead of focussing on just one?
For me, the answer to this question is easy to find, but I think Audre Lorde said it better:
“I cannot afford the luxury of fighting one form of oppression only. I cannot afford to believe that freedom from intolerance is the right of only one particular group. And I cannot afford to choose between the fronts upon which I must battle these forces of discrimination…“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we don’t live single-issue lives.”
Do you blog about topics that are of interest to you? Who are you writing for, and why?
