The Mighty Blog - Official Launch
By Kevin Walton

Welcome one and all to The Mighty Blog website.
I am proud to announce that this site is now fully active with a live blog database and is now officially launched for online publication.

So, what is this site all about?
Well, I have created this site purely to give myself a voice to the open public about any number of issues and topics. These may be anything from general musings about life, the universe and everything, to in-depth game, movie and product reviews.

My personal interests gear towards anything of a technological nature. I hold a Diploma in 3D Computer Animation from Media Design School, New Zealand. I also have a Level 5 New Zealand National Certificate in Adult Education and Training, and a Level 5 New Zealand National Certificate in Adult Numeracy and Literacy Education (Vocational).
I have spent the last 6 years teaching adult students in various tertiary institutes around Auckland, New Zealand on a range of different courses such as Digital Animation, Audio / Video for Web, Computing and Multimedia.

Occasionally I get heated under the collar about a pressing political or current affairs issue and I will use this site to express my opinion on it. However, this is quite a rare occurance for me and I'm not usually very big on politics and current affairs in general.

This is where Debrin Foxcroft comes in. A close, personal family friend, Debrin is a well travelled, highly qualified journalist. I'm sure she'll correct me if I get her actual qualifications wrong - she has a Masters in Photo-Journalism from The University of Missouri, USA and is now studying for her PhD in Journalism at Waikato University, New Zealand. She also has approximately 2 years professional experience as a published journalist for "The Aucklander" and "The New Zealand Herald".
She has very strong views and opinions on many of the biggest issues facing our world today and she is all too keen and eager to take advantage of this platform to express them to you here.

It is my hope that, between Debrin and myself, we might be able to reach out and appeal to the interests of a very broad and diverse section of the global community.

There is still much development to be done to the site in order to add many new functionality features for both bloggers (myself and Debrin) and viewers. These will hopefully get done slowly and gradually over the next few weeks as I find snippets of time here and there to work on it.
As it stands, Debrin and I are now able to unleash our thoughts and options upon the world by posting new blogs.
You, the viewer, are able to sign up an account on the site. As a verified user of the site you will have the option to recieve e-mail notifications about any new posts that are made on the site. Soon, functionality will also be added for verified users to comment on our posts, give posts a 1-10 rating and vote on important issues.

Debrin and I both look forward to sharing our minds with you and we sincerely hope that you will find great value in the things we each have to say.

In the mean time, although the numbers and statistics are now 1½ years old, I found the video at the top of this blog entry to be some really amazing food for thought. We really are living in a digital age.

Occasionally you will see a still image or a YouTube video or both embedded at the top of a blog entry like this. To play a video clip, just click on it. Want to see it bigger? Click on it again while it's playing and you will be taken straight to the original clip on the YouTube website.

God bless you.

Watch this space...

P.S. - Unfortunately, websites do cost money to run. So please, please, PLEASE click on all the Google Ads that you see so that I might get a little back. Thanks.
