There is something therapeutic about things found in twos. A feeling of togetherness.
And although one can be alone, silent and strong in this singular pose, it is by the addition of other bloggers, one at a time, that there begins a feeling of companionship, a sharing of experiences that bespeaks of camaraderie and fellowship. And so we blog.
We validate who we are even as we interact with (and create) validation for others. Most often this is accomplished one blog, one post, and one blogger at a time, and although (as we know) social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, About.me, etc.) creates ‘the feeling’ that we are connecting with many more – it is most often the interaction happening in shared communication that is “one on one” that is the truth and mainstay behind our love of blogging.
We are hopeful that many will come to our blog (and/or our other social platforms) and visit. We are even more hopeful that our artistic creations, messages, information and services/products will be sought after.
But blogging stays popular, ever increasingly so, because of the ongoing ever reaching (world-wide) relationships we make with each other as blogging companions.
“So, here’s a toast to bloggers everywhere,
the connection of ‘you and I’ in essence
– the two of things.”
Have an excellent weekend,
