John Marsden Writing Topic #453
State a belief you hold strongly and explain why you believe it**
I strongly believe in making your own positive contribution to the internet.
What I mean by this is that the internet is an equally wonderful and dangerous tool. It can be used to raise money for worthy causes, help people get jobs, create jobs, provide much needed information quickly and connect people. However it can also be used to get revenge on people, bully people and assist in or enable crime, not to mention people using social media for vacuous or malicious purposes.
Therefore I strongly believe that people need to contribute to the internet in a positive way, which is why I continue to blog and create content even though I finished my university studies, which required me to establish blogs, over a year ago.
