Why Blog?

Studies show that platforms such as blogging increase motivation for writing and promote writing development (Zheng, Yim & Warschauer, 2018).  Studies also show that blogging results in improved attitude towards writing and helps demonstrate real-world application of theory (Pilkington, 2018).  Furthermore, with increased political divides in the United States, blogs have been found to create empathy for opposing viewpoints unifying democratic citizenship (Caughell, 2018).

This particular blog’s purpose is to share emerging technology trends in futuring and innovation to promote skill building in the world one post at a time.  With growing doom and financial pressures in the newspaper business, the blogosphere is a unique environment that allows ordinary citizens to write their viewpoints in a way that is just starting to be understood.
