Welcome to Diary of An Enthusiast!
What is an ‘enthusiast’? Well, the word enthusiast comes from the Greek enthousiastēs, meaning “person inspired by a god”. Although it was originally used to describe an excessive religious zeal (well, I do consider Irish bluesman Rory Gallagher as a music god, but I’ll come back to it later), it is now commonly used to describe a person who is ardently attached to a cause or a subject. Well, that’s what I am! And that’s what this blog is all about. I am an enthusiast of all things: History, Music, Literature, Cinema, and many more.
I decided to create a blog where I could write and share stories of artists, books, films and historical figures that I believe are worth knowing/discovering. Who knows, you might develop an interest for them yourself!
I hope you will enjoy this blog. You can follow Diary of An Enthusiast by clicking on the “Follow Blog via Email” on the sidebar and receive notifications of new posts be email.
