The beginning of a journey
I was looking for something to wile away these early dark winter evenings when I remembered the blogs a friend of mine wrote whilst travelling across Europe, so, in I delved. What I hadn’t realised was that there was such a diversity of blogs, people write about anything and everything, whatever pops into their heads at any given moment, things that worry them, puzzle them, cause concern or a sense of injustice, or little anecdotes, things that have happened in their day to day existence that caused them to raise a smile, a frown, tears or a belly laugh, helpful hints and tips, receipes, good places to eat, places to avoid, the list is endless. Being a nosy bird, I am fascinated by blogs, the way they develop and why.
I can see it’s a way of reaching out and touching people you would normally never cross paths with, reading about the different cultures, ways of living, and ways of thinking can only be a good thing surely?
Its also nice to realise that other people are also going through the same trials and tribulations as myself, seeing things as a bigger picture, rather than confined to my own small peripheral vision, is giving me a sense of ………..oh i don’t know…….relief, I suppose. In this unsettled climate, its encouraging to read of how other people are coping, the changes they have or have not, had to make. It is interesting to click around the continuing maze of people, until I feel a little dizzy at the enormity of the world of blog, some nights not wanting to switch of the laptop as I feel my way around, feeling a connection with people I have never even seen, places I have never even been, and a mix of emotions I never thought I would feel. I’m looking forward to this journey of discovery and finding out if I have anything to contribute.
What was your own reasons for starting on this path?
