With millions of blogs around, why add one more? First of all, this site does not fall within most definitions of what a blog is. My goal with Soukie’s Place is to look for interesting aspects of issues spanning a variety of subjects that interest me, bring them to the attention of the readers in a concise way, and gain better insights while doing so.
I am trying to uphold the following criteria:
- Each article must contain something original, and it must have ‘value’ in terms of preparation, presentation and content.
- The content and style are not catering to the widest audience possible (through ‘dumbing down,’ or choice of topics).
- The writing needs to be objective and sensitive but not to the point of losing any ‘voice’ or point of viewAs a reader, I value articles that have actual opinions because they allow me to shape my own in relation to them (even if I happen to disagree with the writer)..
The goal is not to make money (no advertisement is served) which gives me the freedom to write in the way outlined above. If you do like Soukie’s Place, there are ways you can support it.
I hope you enjoy the articles!
