Blogging is a practice I defend, and that defends me. And like Bonnie Stewart, who writes beautifully about the relationship between employability and writing and loss of voice, I understand this writing as a stealing back of the self that is otherwise left hostage to the banal performativity of “career”.
Writing is the gift we give to ourselves. It’s the soul work of our agency, our refusal, and our choice.
It’s that important.
