I have only been blogging now for just over 4 months. It has been such a wonderful and rewarding experience. There have been people I would imagine in all parts of the world that I have met, through cyber space.
I started blogging mainly as an outlet for loving to write. I haven’t written anything earth shattering, nor such that would be considered anything but what an amateur might do There are no credentials in my history that indicate any proficiency in doing so. But I began, and stepped into this world where people write all sorts of things, from poetry to photography. I still don’t understand all that is involved in blogging but what I do know, I like.
There are so many interesting people and many that have issues in all sorts of areas of life. Like me, there are many dealing with or who have dealt with depression. There are those with eating disorders and forms of mental illness, that long to be understood, and acknowledged that they are dealing with issues that so many do not understand what the severity of their difficulty is.
Many need to have an encouraging word, or to realize someone who has felt the same things they are feeling now, and is there to affirm them. There are those who bring a smile to others by their wit and humor provided, sometimes in humor of everyday living. There are yet others who are so creative in crafts or cooking. There are those who give everyday spiritual insight. It’s like a smorgasbord of information.
One of the other reasons I decided to write a blog, was that perhaps in something that I may have experienced, or am experiencing, by writing about it, may touch someone else’s spirit or soul, and may bring some light into their life. Much of what I write about is my own struggles through my life, because I choose to look back and see the change and how far I have come, and how far the Lord has brought me I must say that I have more of an introspective personality and so that’s how I write. I need to be me.
Having said all that, I must confess that I am ‘addicted’ to this new interest in my life….BLOGGING!!!!!
