On Blogging...Vol. 2
I want to thank everyone for their comments on my blogging post. It really means a lot to me that my post struck a chord with so many people. I've continued to think about this, spurred on by your comments and the posts that so many of you have made on your own that have caused me to examine my own blogging habits. Part of my reexamination of my blogging habits involves analyzing the blogs I love to read.
Why do I love to read them?
What inspires me to comment?
Am I inspiring others in this same manner?
And decidedly, I was not. I receive so many more comments when I post honestly, from my heart. I have held back on this blog from posting so many ideas and inspiration.
Sometimes, I am apprehensive because I worry it is not what you want to hear.
Sometimes, I suffer from just putting my personal thoughts and feelings in the internet ethos because it is forever documented in some eternal dossier out there in the cyberworld.
I visit other people's blogs because I want to know more about something, about these people that I have seen, their work, their philosophies.
That brought me to a realization about this blog. Remember when I said that I started this blog for my business? Yes, I did. However, I think that people visit this blog though because they want to know a little bit more me as a person....why I make the things I do, what makes me tick perhaps....And I'm ready to start sharing a bit more.
I really am. So, thank you, for coming here to learn about me, as a person. I look forward to getting to know you as well.
