When I began blogging I felt like my site was like an empty bowl. I was confident that it would fill up, that I’d find something to write about, that someone would join in and read my blogs and as the bowl emptied, it would fill time and again.
That is what has happened. Just recently some of my blogger friends have been sharing what they do when they’re in a slump. Some plow through it, others move, some write, others indulge in chocolate (ok, that one was me …) and on and on.
The idea that one can post about something and others can chime in with help is a beautiful thing. Unseen friends from across the nation and over the oceans are there with fingers at the ready to offer support and help.
A blogger community has grown and continues to grow. Having the courage to write about one’s health, a dying family member, an employment issue, weight problems, homesickness and our hopes, dreams and despair is bold and embracing in so many ways.
Adding insight, asking questions, offering praises and appreciation is a way to help others fill their empty bowls. And in turn, they help me fill mine.
A warm hug to my community of wonderful bloggers, friends and colleagues!
