A little something about Blogging and Chatting

When I first came to Blogland, I started out by just reading people’s posts. I laughed, cried, and yes, got turned on with you. A friend of mine told me about flyaway’s post, and the day I read it, I was amazed at how similar we were. I instantly emailed her, and we became friends, although we have never met in person. (which is sad, because she lives so close to me) When I told her that I was thinking about starting my own blog, she was very excited for me. I was very nervous. I didn’t know what kind of responses I was going to get, if any.

In my very first post, I mentioned how I realized that there were so many people just like me out there, trying to find themselves. I think that still is the case. I also said that I hoped to get to know more of you, and you to get to know me…well this is also the case! Over the past few months, I have made so many wonderful friends here. I spoke about a few of them in my KNIGHTS OF BLOGLAND post.

The internet and AdultFriendFinder bring people together from all over the world. I, for one, have people that I chat with in many different states, Canada, and even New Zealand and Australia! I’m still hoping for the Europe, Africa, and Asia connections someday…hint, hint…

I have developed a close relationship with some of these people. With others, it’s more like casual acquaintances that I talk to every once in a while, which is okay, because we are there for each other if we need to be.

Chatting and blogging have become a major factor in my healing process, but knowing that I have to guard my heart has made me realize that there is a fine line that has to be drawn between fantasy and reality. People can get into trouble if they start living more in the fantasy world than the reality of it all. I would love to meet the people that I chat with, and maybe someday I will, but I have to remember that in all reality, I have to live my life here in my smalltown, Missouri, and leave my fantasy in chatting and Blogland.

On the flipside though, the people in Blogland are real to me, and I value the friendships that I’ve made. When I chat with people, I am REAL, but I remember that emotions need to stay out of it, because that could get me into trouble.

So, bottom line, I will continue to chat and blog as long as you will have me!

Excellent post. I'm pretty much the same. I'm just ME. I'm not here to win any popularity contests or convert anyone to anything. I am completely ME. I do my best to be bone crushingly honest about who I am and while I give my friends the benefit of the doubt...even after meeting in person, I realize it isn't always so. Even people I've known since childhood aren't always honest. I was married for 7 years and God knows, he wasn't honest. Even after he swore he would be. So....enjoy it all for what it is, enjoy the people for who they say they are and try not to get too lost in it all. But if you do, feel free to cry on our collective shoulders...Blogville understands..

My marriage only last 6 years. So much for "til death us do part". If you've ever read any of my previous posts, you know that he was a man with his own agenda, which didn't include me. That's when I started chatting. I got from my online friends what he couldn't give me. Some would say that I wasn't being faithful, and I KNOW I wasn't being faithful, but neither was he. He left the concept of husband and wife a long time ago! I thank God everyday that I have people in my life, both in real life and here that I can go to for support.

Hmm.. I seem to be the opposite. The people in blogland are so NOT real to me..lol.. and I don't let my emotions get involved with anyone here. Really.. it's hard for me to have feelings or friendships with people I've never met (or at least talked to on the phone frequently). Thinkin' about it now, I'm not really close to ANY of my fellow bloggers. Now.. there's a few readers I have, who I've met in person and we've become kinda close.. but that's it. Maybe I'm missin' out!!
