Hello world! This is my first article.
If you think it, the title of this article is very similar to one WordPress has when you install it for the very first time — but better. But that doesn't actually matter that much — except if you’re a WordPress fan. Then I am sorry.
So here it goes: My name is Panos and I live in a small town somewhere in Greece. I write about blogging and productivity on my Greek blog and I am very happy with my readers. I also had been a journalist for some Greek Magazines in the past, but with the situations in this country these kind of jobs don’t have a very bright future. And my blog, it’s going great but my articles are limited to almost 11 million people, and I have the whole world in front of me to reach.
Okay, you got the point. Maybe I am not a good writer for you, and that’s okay. This is my first article in English after all (still a newbie as you say). But this is the begging of my new journey. A journey where I can reach as many people as possible.
For almost 1 year now I was thinking to start blogging in English, but never actually did it — not until now at least. And the truth is, I love writing in English. It’s so much more easy if you compare it with Greek language and it’s more beautiful thanks to all the available fonts out there. Every theme I have ever used on WordPress or any other blogging platform was builted for English articles and not for Greek — although you’ll going to find a lot of available fonts for Greek, but not as beautiful.
The funny think about this article is that I can read it again after a few years and see how much progress I’ve made.
I’m so happy right now. You know, for doing this! Writing all of these is my new begging as a international writer (I think I just used the wrong word, but who cares?).
I've choose Medium as my blogging platform because it’s simple, fast and free. For over a year now I am following Medium and it’s readers and I have already read so many good articles from so many great writers. I think Medium is the right place for young and inspiring writers to start writing and start reaching more people.
But here’s the thing: I am not sure where I’ll publish my next article. And that’s because I am in talks for moving to UK. Ah, UK, everything seems so much simpler there. Who knows? Maybe I’ll stay there or come back after a few months / months.
And.. that’s it actually. My first article. My begging to reach a few more people and spread all the things that I love and make me the guy that I am today.
And you? Who are you? What are you doing and what’s your goal in your life?
