In Praise Of The Blogs And One Sweet Angel

A dear friend and Blog sister and I were talking off board this morning and she mentioned how much some recent posts of
had helped in her some recent personal turmoil.

I always smile when I see comments from bloggers saying they blog for themselves. Not true. You blog for Blogland and the world.

My Blog currently stands at 36th ish in the world rankings which is great but I have no ego so I see it as an opportunity for the world to read my mind. Nothing I write is off the cuff.

So when each post is written by each blogger someone, anywhere can take comfort, or learn from it.

Way to go bloggers. Way to go
. Keep spreading the love sister.

Oh. I sense one of our glorious (aren't all Greeks glorious?) Greek friends may need our love LipsSayAll

Hey Dusty

Angel is indeed true to her name!!

There is definitely a component to blogging for ones self.... I have found it a fantastic place to think things trough by writing them down... I have never before kept any kind of journal.. but there is that aspect of being here....

There is also some level of "recognition" one gets from writing here as well... (and yes I have been on the dreaded lists... and it mean basically nothing to me.. although I did get more views then LOL I basicaly took myself off the list by deleting a bunch of posts)

But one of the most unexpected (at least to me) aspects of blogging... is the LOVE AND SUPPORT one gets here!! TRULY AMAZING!!

I agree,

There are many rewards to blogging - both for ourselves and others, but the most unexpected is definately the support, friendship, and love we fiend in the most unexpected places...
