Yes definitely more than just a post …
When you sit down in front of your computer to create your post for the day it’s more than a post!
This is a space that you call your own. You may share your thoughts, your feelings, your explorations of life, both those inside your head and in everyday life, but more probably the creative side of you that you don’t show anywhere else.
Being a blogger allows you to expand your vision and share what life means to you. It’s special and unique!
I’m a blogger and this is a space where I can write and say what I want to, the way I want to, when I want to. I can inspire if I wish to, or I can perhaps introduce new information to you.
This then is the most special place on the planet because when I’m here I own the persona that is reflected in each and every word, photograph, illustration, musical video, and any other creative application that I choose to use this place for.
And when you come to visit … it’s me you’re coming to see. The me I want to be noticed, the me I want you to like and remember. That me. The me that, maybe, no one else see’s or notices, at least not in the way I want to be seen.
And when I’m here, I’m at peace. There is a special feeling that I have here that I get no where else. Something that enriches my soul.
It certainly improves my ability to communicate (through words) with others. And as I go about and visit other bloggers I sense from their posts the same proprietary sensations that they have about their own blog as they (like me) share that very special creative side of their nature.
Our blog and our posts are palettes, and journals, a creative landscape opening us up to greater and better things.
For some of us there are creative goals we are reaching for. And here in our blogs we share in the reaching of those goals together, even as we come to know one another personally as friends.
And this is the WHY ABOUT THIS! The Why a Blog is more than a Blog and a Post is more than a Post and a comment is more than a mere response by another blogger. We’re communicating because it’s about us. Each other.
We’re the ones that are blogging and commenting. And this makes it extra special and more than the sum of all it’s parts.
We aren’t the only one that feels alone when standing in a group of people. There are many of us, different, unique, special. Talented.
We blog to be creative but we also blog to meet and be interactive with others like ourselves. Blogging is enriching, and informative. It enhancing our intelligence and our creative muse, but mostly I think it nourishes while fulfilling our need to reach out to others and be accepted for who we are!
All these things given/received by the bloggers who blog and all the reasons why, a Blog is more than a blog and a post is more than a post. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
So if your a blogger I have a table waiting just for you to share a visit with, or at your place, yours or mine doesn’t matter – I can’t wait! Blog on!
