Today I’m feeling a deep level of appreciation and gratitude to all of you in the blogging community. I am beginning to see this place as a place of “community,” not just somewhere that I come and write, and go away again. I started this blog in December, and for the many months since I’ve been writing, have used this place primarily as a place of writing. In the last few weeks, I have really begun reaching out and exploring this world that is blogging, reading other’s posts and commenting on them, and I am struck with a feeling of awe and reverence.
There are so many amazingly strong, insightful, reflective, and courageous people out there who have the courage to write about what is closest to their hearts. Or simply write about what they enjoy. Regardless of what it is that you all write about, it is important, because you are sharing a part of yourself in whatever small or big way.
I have very much enjoyed reading your blogs and getting to know you through your blogs. I appreciate what you all have to say, and I find that I am often uplifted and inspired by it. You all are teaching me new things every day. Through your writings, you (all) are making me think about things that I may not necessarily think about. You are providing me with new perspectives on things, and broadening my (seemingly) small and finite world.
So this post is for you. To all you bloggers out there – Thanks.
