The Argument

Starting a blog during the pandemic is a good way to preserve this moment in history. This is important because years from now when we look back and reflect on the pandemic, it is blogs that reveal the personal and intimate details of what life was like during the pandemic. Blogs allow anyone with a computer and an internet connection to have a voice.
