Blogging is a Morning Tea Break

I exchanged a couple of “get to know you emails” with a nice-sounding fellow. We talked about ourselves and then turned to matters technical:

WP: Mmm Somehow I don't think we're gonna hook up. But I'm fascinated by the "texture" in you photograph. How did you do it?

Him: I used photoshop 6 from window in the category "effects" I used water colour effect! Ho well it is worth trying out! anyway I do not like mind games!... best of luck in what ever you are looking for!

WP: mind games?

Him: may be they not mind game but I do not understand the purpose of all that blogging ? like some one well known in police in australia would say! " please explain?"

WP: I spent a little time thinking about how to answer your question. Blogging is like writing letters or emails, but instead of being one-on-one there is a group involved. It's like a big rowdy, morning tea break where everyone chips in. …. Best, Polly

“like a big rowdy, morning tea break where everyone chips in” ‒ Do you agree? How is it for you?

This is Polly, still Wagging

Kind of reminds me of my military days in the barracks at night. In every room you would go to, there would be something different going on. Card game in one room, talking with buddies in another, maybe some guys studying for a promotion or college class down the hall, a party elsewhere maybe. It is a collage of people in various endeavors, simultaniously going on around the globe. That is what I see, a global barracks on a saturday night. Later

Tea break? Huh? Don't you guys drink coffee? Tea break? That just sounds so strange to me. But hey! I suppose if it's good enough fer da Queen...

PS: It'll never sell in America...

PPS: Blogging is free expression. In other words it can be anything, and cannot be defined simply.

PPPS: (although the simple are indeed blogging)

Let the simple speak for themselves. I think they just did.
But remember: I am Australian and I am a republican. I don't drink with Queens.

Good analogy. I too agree in many ways. To me, it is kind of like walking through the college dorms. One person is in love, one is heart broken, one just failed their exam, and one is simply trying to grow up! You, Polly, are a true gem in the wonderful web of friendship woven here!

I hope things are looking up, Angel. I wish I'd shared a dorm with you. Wouldn't we bloggers have had fun?

I agree...
and it is a medium where everyone can be honest with who they are
beyond the questions in the profile and sparks of friendship can develop with people on a level where time would never allow one to
develop since one on one emails would eat up a week in a heartbeat!
everyone can chip in with their thoughts on ALOT of different subjects and when you DO meet someone from the blogs, it is like you have known them for years! seems like that to me, anyway!

where else would could I meet intresting people from all over the
world and feel as though there really is a connection because of
the sharing that takes place here. this site is about people and their hearts and minds...not just about sex and swings..and blogland really shines the light on that doubt about it!

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Maybe, but the Queen started it.

waggypolly replies on 8/12/2006 7:27 am:
She started morning tea breaks or Australia. Btw, I always drink coffee at morning tea time myself.

I always think about this kind of blogging as being forum blogging and it is a wonderfully open way of communicating. It gives a much more holistic picture of ourselves than a profile ever could and opens up avenues of friendship. And with that comes a voyage of discovery, not just about your fellow bloggers, but equally about yourself through all the interactions that take place.

What I particularly like is the fact that we are the writers, the readers, the commentators all in one, gravitating towards those who capture and hold our interest, not just sexually but as whole human beings.

Blog on dear waggy and may the Blogmuse be with you! {=}

Yes, the Blogmuse sort of sorts us out into the right little coffee table groupings. {=}

“like a big rowdy, morning tea (coffee, I agree with Keith lol) break where everyone chips in” Very nicely put.

Wow! Such awesome and perceptive comments here.

Quoting Warmandsexy52: "Blog on dear waggy and may the Blogmuse be with you!"

I like your analogy, Polly. Even if that fellow didn't understand blogging, at least he got the terminology correct. I get instant messages from a friend who announces to me... "I read your blob today." Bless his heart, I know he means well but sometimes I can't help but wonder if it isn't an unintentional assessment of the quality of my posts.

Not all who wander are lost.

Blobs, blobs Love it.
I'm amazed at how many people ask what a blog is: But "mind games"?
