Written-down thoughts

Photo by Michael Burrows on

Throughout the ages, several people found it interesting to write down their thoughts, but also to write down what happened throughout the day. With discrete entries today, still several people arrange by date reports on what has happened over the course of a day or other period, or of what they thought. Such diaries might include the person’s personal experiences, thoughts, and/or feelings or the things that happened to the writer each day. The present media tools made that comments on current events outside the writer’s direct experience also could become part of the diary or journal.


Normally a diary is intended to remain private or to have a limited circulation amongst friends or relatives, but at the closing of the previous century, we could see many people presenting their diary in an open or public forum or blog on the internet, or Weblog, online journal where an individual, group, or corporation presents a record of activities, thoughts, or beliefs.

Generally, a “diary” has (or intends to have) daily entries (from the Latin words “dia” and “diurnalis” for ‘day’ and ‘diurnal ‘or ‘journal’), but this does not have to be always the case. When there take place less regular or less frequent writings, one speaks more of journal-writing and a journal, logbook, or blog.

On October the first of the year 2021, the intention was made officially public to offer here at WordPressSome view on the world“. You could say that Marcus Ampe decided to bring a virtual or electronic logbook or some record-keeping of news gathering or documenting of interesting or attention-demanding events or actions of significance.

At this newly formed place, Marcus Ampe has the intention to regularly cover a wide variety of fields such as politics, religion, environment, business, art, and to bring not only his opinion but share some interesting opinions of others who present their writings also on the net.

Newspapers are typically published daily or weekly, like News magazines. If you shall be able to find here every day a new article, I am not sure of. Weekly you shall find some articles, with labels and tags, but regularly also with some added links, so that you can find other related articles as well.
Besides the aforementioned news, information and opinions, you shall be able to notice I shall do not mind giving some criticism and as such, I do agree that all articles published here and on my other blogs, are in a way presented from my point of view and based on my ethical standard and religious views, and therefore not always so neutral as one could or should find in general newspapers.

No memoir or autobiography

Although a diary may provide information for a memoir, autobiography or biography, you will not find too many personal characteristics revealed here, as it is not my intention to give an insight into my person or to present an autobiography.
My intention is to share some thoughts with you and several readers in order to make several people think about certain topics, which I think definitely need attention in this world. I firmly believe that one has to look at the past and the present and try to understand them in order to work on the future.

Not standing by

We can not just ‘Stand By’, and must remember that in the world there are too many living beings who have no voice and who or what have to be protected. History has known too many periods where people did not dare to speak up and allowed certain horrible things to happen. In future, we should try to avoid such events. Present people with the knowledge of the previous centuries should know that the events and actions that together make up the human past may be part of history but should be avoided to repeat when they were or are not desired. For that reason on “My Space” I like to study and make some description of those happenings (or try to commit me to historiography).
