â€œI am part of a community of bloggers, a part of the overall blogosphere and at the same time I am also part of many other groups within the blogosphere.
I am able to reach out and click someone. I can see that there are others who are facing the same challenges I face or have already overcome them. I take strength in their words and I offer my own.â€
(From Why I Blog)
Blogging has become so pervasive that I routinely hear people question and comment about it. Many of those people are unfamiliar with it and have very skewed opinions regarding why people would do it.
I stand by my quote and the entire post it came from because I believe that blogging is real and that it can lead to and build real relationships between people. I believe that it can be used to bridge gaps in understanding and differences between people. I believe that it can be used as a great tool to help.
And like every other tool it can be used to harm others. It all depends upon who is wielding it and what their actions. But the good far outweighs the bad.
I am approaching my second blogiversary and I still feel like I haven’t come close to reaching the potential that this blog holds, but I am slowly getting there.
It has been one hell of a ride and I looking forward to see what else I encounter on this journey and I certainly am interested in seeing where this all leads.
Thanks for reading, I appreciate it.
