Initially it started because my daughters blogged. I really didn't think I had anything to say that anyone else may care to read about, but the challenge was there.
I guess I may be a closet " kinda, sorta, wanna be writer" (of what I don't know!) Maybe you are too!
The ironic part is I write for a living..sorta crazy I guess.
I write all day long, and then come home and (time permitting)
either write or read some more.
I have found new friends, and read about your lives and families (both two legged and four legged). Many of you I can so relate too, either because you are in a place I was in when I was younger, or you are in a place in this time of your life I am in now!
I have talked about my faith, my politics, my family, my critters, my roadtrips and the weather with our wet & gray Pacific NW.
I have rambled about miscellaneous nothing, and about personal loss. I have been encouraged and comforted by you, people who I don't know, but who have taken the time to hit the "comment" button to say something to me.
Blogging is huge, it is a means to communicate and have contact with others. Did you know we were created to need others? No wonder this blogging stuff is so huge.
People who feel lonely, or low, who feel something is missing in their lives...blog.
People who are outgoing and have so much to say, who are naturally like a magnet to other people, they blog as an extension of their outgoing nature.
People who have strong feelings about their faith, their politics, and their hobbies and interests...they blog.
People who are shy, can blog as if they are not.
If you have a lot or a little, no worries...we are all on the same playing field in the Blog-sphere.
I don't have to know what your house looks like, if it is big or small, new or old. I don't need to know how it is furnished, if it is clean, or a mess. I don't have to know if you shop at the mall, or at the second hand store...it doesn't matter... ( I will say it can make for a fun blog though to hear about your bargain finds!).
So, as my 1 year Anniversary is technically coming upon me, I want to say ...
Thank You, to all of you.
Thanks for coming by, and for letting me come visit you.
Thanks for having the faith to add yourself as a follower on my Blog, and for leaving comments to encourage me and make me smile.
I have had a fun year, and more then anything have enjoyed your Blogs during this time..
