|Ready for our celebratory night out|
I was once again overwhelmed with your response to my previous post. Being able to share aspects of my life on this blog means I don't need to spend quite as long talking to the wall and for that reason alone, I am truly grateful for your comments. I find your loyalty and support the biggest and best part of blogging so a massive thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Now, have you ever thought what you'd do if you didn't blog? Do you sometimes wonder what you did do before you started blogging? It's like before you had children; we all had a life pre-kids, but not many of us (if any) will admit to it being a better life back then. I've been blogging for four years, but it sometimes feels like so much longer. In a nice way of course. I feel as though I've got to know so many people on a personal level and for someone who lives as remotely as I do, that's a very positive thing. Life isn't a bed of roses all the time, there will always be parts of our existence that we wish didn't happen, but in a blog we can talk about it. People can advise us, make suggestions, lift our spirits and help us reach decisions. Before blogging, we had to do all that ourselves.
Does blogging make us lazy in finding solutions to the problems we face? I guess in some ways it probably does, but it's so nice to share our thoughts with others, to ask for help. For me, it's one of the best feelings in the world to know that someone out there is going through the same as you, whether that be something good or bad. It's a consolation that we're never alone. Blogging has taught me that. It's shown me a world outside the little corner in which I live and it's made me realise that no matter what happens in life, there will always be someone who will understand.
I've created a page on this blog where I will promote blog posts. It will be updated on a weekly basis. Recently I've read some amazing posts and I want to share them with you. Blog recognition is encouraging for anyone, so watch out, you could be featured on my list one day!
