3 YEARS OF BLOGGING


WOW, Already 3 years of blogging. It doesn't seem that long ago but at the same time so much can happened in our lives.

I have been fortunate to have made many friends through chat, many of which have their own blogs. I think we learn so much about people through their writting. It seems different or deeper when it comes from their thoughts, through to their fingertips onto the page. I also think of it as a precious privilege. To be invited into ones writtings...ones life.

I went back to read some of my archives. I was reminded of stuff that happened over these 3 yrs. Some made me laugh while others made me groan. But all made me glad I had it written down to go back to and remember.

I have also been lucky enough to find some wonderful people just through their blog. Over the years, reading a few here and there that intrique enough to go back to...or they hit a cord of recognition in ones own life and experiences. The connections I have made through the yrs are precious to me. They have become part of my reading routine each week. My blog list grows while others are either stop blogging or go on to other things.

I think many can relate that although more often then not, we have never met many of our blog friends, we still feel real happiness or sadness when we read about what's going on in their lives.

It's also a positive testiment to humans in a world of much termoil. We can get comfort from perfect strangers regardless of distance and time. To feel compelled to write a comment to cheer someone up on a particularly hard day or just encourage them for whatever reason. To know, ''hey I was here to read your blog'' always causes a smile. How powerful is that.

You know that expression, ''How do we change the world?---One good deed at at time''. I think blogging is kind of like that also. One good blog or comment at a time.

Thank you...to all the great blogs out there and all the people who have taken a moment to comment. I hope 3 yrs from now I will have even more great blog friends and many more experiences to write about.

It is amazing that blogging for three years, and some of the posts you look back and think, did I do that?
We have also been blogging for 3 years, 3 months...
