I started my first blog just a month ago, and have been overwhelmed by the great community of bloggers out there in cyberspace. I have read so many interesting blogs with such great writing, poetry, photographs, life stories, feelings, and experiences, that I feel I am trekking in a different world.
I have ventured into strange places, slept in strange beds (once I slept in a monastery), and witnessed strange sights (I once flew over an erupting volcano, and witnessed whirlpools and water spouts in the Bermuda triangle).
I have met interesting people on my journeys, but meeting strangers merely creates an exterior bond; you never really get to know their inner side. Here, in the blogging community, the writings, poems, and photographs reveal bloggers’ true identities. Personal feelings, hopes, aspirations, inner struggles, pain, joy, soul searching, are all portrayed through their posts.
In school and college, I was an avid reader, often reading a book from end to end in one sitting. Today, I rarely finish a book, partly from boredom and partly from predictability. Most writers write about other people’s lives and emotions. Bloggers write about their personal lives and thoughts. The versatility and emotive quality of some posts are simply astounding, and they are honest and genuine reflections of people’s lives.
I must say that my trek into the blogging world is off the beaten path of literary exploration, and this novel experience is all due to the community and great friends I have made here! Thank you all!…and…
Keep on blogging!
