The Beauty of Blogging.

The Beauty of Blogging
I’m glad I’m back blogging and I’ll do my best not to “hide” again for a long time. There were various reasons why I couldn’t be blogging constantly, but I’ll spare you the details ’cause I want to stick on the topic I’m writing about. But, I will share one of the reasons ’cause it will bring me anyway to where I want to go with my story. 
 
My laptop broke down and I felt like I was in the stone age so I tried using my I-Phone more instead of using it only for text messages, calling and making pictures. But unfortunately I couldn`t manage to become good friends with it, so I made a wish list and waited till Santa came in town and I was lucky ’cause just before he left he fulfilled my wish and I said goodbye to the stone age. 
But before I got my gift I visited many stores looking and comparing some notebooks and wondering which one I would receive if I was lucky. 😉 There was one store where I ended up in a conversation telling the vendor why I needed a laptop so bad. One of the reasons was the blogging. And so I felt like a storyteller ’cause he was very interested in the blogging story. He told me I sounded like a passionate blogger and I was flattered by his remark. I said: ” Blogging is not just surfing on internet. Each blogger is a human being and it feels like you’ve always know each other. Maybe it’s because you have the same passion.”
 
Then suddenly this man who was standing and listening to us asked me” How can you say you love blogging and have a connection with other bloggers you don’t even know.” 
His words: ” How can someone that has never seen you in real life, that’s not even a part of your daily life touches you or respects you. How can strangers on a blog site touch your heart with theirs words and stories more than someone you know in real life? Strangers can be kind but they can never touch your heart. ” 
 
My first words that came out was: ” I never see them as strangers. That feeling doesn`t even come up into my mind. At this moment you are a real stranger to me, while you’re standing here in front of me.” He said. ” Only real friends can touch your heart. And besides .. you might keep hanging in those words and by the way ..it’s just a blog.. with words you must be very clever if you can touch someone with your words. “
Wow, you might be surprised but it felt like it was a test to define my limits. If you know J.D. from the medical comedy t.v. serie Scrubs, you’ll understand exactly how I felt. I saw myself pulling out his hair and then walking away. But instead I took a deep breath and wished I could explain to this person what the blogging is really about. 
 
First I wanted to convince him that he might find something interesting if he would try it out. Whether if it’s something to laugh about, or something inspirable or an educative topic, there’s always something nice and something meaningful to read about in the world of blogging. The one better than another, but each one in their own way! But I ignored him and continued my conversation with the vendor. 
  
What I’ve experienced during that conversation was that not everybody is positive about the blogging. In other conversations people I know and even friends do like it, but they always say they don’t have time to blog. And when I mention that with a full time job, being a single mom that also workout 3 to 4 times a week at the gym, following a language course once a week at night and travelling regularly to visit friends and families in the weekend, I have never said I don’t have time for the blogging. And then…. Silence is all I hear. 
It would be easy to say that I don’t have time to blog, but I won’t, ’cause since I started doing it I love blogging and I really am glad I once discovered the World of Blogging. Of course, I have to admit that I won’t always be able to do it on a frequently bases, but it’s not the quantity that matters but the quality. I might make mistakes, but I learn from them and try becoming better the next time. 
Every time I post something, I share a piece of me and I am very thankful to all the bloggers that are interested in my posts. I’m happy I can be part of this world called blogging where there are so many beautiful people, from all kind of fields that are being themselves, sharing beautiful, strong, educative, funny, inspirational and healthy stories, poems and topics.
At this point I can’t imagine being without my blogger friends because they are very special to me. So I want you to know, when you don’t hear anything from me, I’m missing you for sure! And that’s what I call the beauty of blogging!

    • Thank you so much Wendell! And I’m glad to be back. Missed your inspiring and wonderful poems. I just visited your blog and did read the newest poems… Lovely..filled with love and beautiful as always. You’re a wonderful writer, but I’m sure you know that already. 😉 Thank you so much for your visit on my blog and I wish you a wonderful and blessed weekend!

  1. What a beautiful post! I know what you are saying because I feel the same way about my followers! They are so positive and touch my heart with their comments. I pray for many of them as I walk my little dog (or both) each day. I have come so close to them that I can’t wait till we can talk forever in heaven.

    I also enjoy writing and find it addictive. Your posts come from your heart and I’ll look forward to reading more of them. Blessings,

    • Ellie, Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and for confirming that it really is wonderful being part of this amazing blogging world! 🙂 I just visited your blog and noticed a wealth of warm and beautiful words filled with lots of love. That’s wonderful! 🙂 I`ll come back soon to read some more and you can be sure that you’re a follower richer too! Wishing you a wonderful and blessed day!

  2. The man who spoke to you doesn’t have a clue. I think he could blog for years and never make a friend, since he sounds as if his mind is already made…it’s impossible to care about bloggers. I feel the same way you do. I’ve made some wonderful friends while blogging. My life has ben enriched because of the beautiful and exciting blogs that take me around the world and amazing me with wonderful words and photographs. So much poetry, so many stories and all incredible artwork that would go unseen, if it wasn’t for my blogging friends. Yay! for bloggers and the gifts they spread:)

    • Gigi, Thank you so much for your visit and your kind and warm words! I also thought like you wrote when looking at that man. It was like watching into emptiness, so indeed, where there are no feelings there will never be fulfillment and gratefulness.. so one can never make friends if they don’t open their hearts. I’m very thankful to be part of the blogging world. Wishing you a wonderful week! 🙂
