Slowly but surely getting more followers. Still have very few comments. Not sure why. Some of these posts I pour my heart out, and wish I had comments. Some people do comment in Facebook on my link, but that disappears and doesn’t show up under my permanent posts here in Word Press. Sometimes I don’t link a post to Facebook in deference to my family and ex in-laws, who probably wouldn’t want to see the truth in some of my posts. Sometimes I write a story or essay and send it in to contests. Win or lose, I am very proud of my entries, and they are all winners in my book.
I have found SO MANY bloggers to follow. Every morning my inbox is overflowing with fresh new posts and comments. I read every one. Sometimes I comment, sometimes I don’t, but only because so many other people have I figure it’d get lost in the shuffle anyway. I wish I had that problem, lol.
Some of the bloggers are so nice and helpful and sweet. I really appreciate any help learning the ropes around here. That’s why I hope for more comments. They will come, with time, I’m sure. This is a great blogging community here, and the more I get to know them, the better I like them. All the bloggers are so supportive of each other, and sometimes the comments are better than the original blog, with all the input back and forth!
I find that some people, including myself, express themselves better in written words. It can be a very cathartic experience. It is more than just journaling. It is sharing experiences, good and bad, with other people who take the time to read and share ideas with each other. Some posts are soul-searching and therapeutic. It is cleansing to get it all out in black and white. I have a lot of posts sitting in my drafts, waiting for me to decide whether or not to publish them. I don’t want to hurt people with some things I have to say. My truths or versions of a story may be quite different from theirs. But it’s okay if they sit in drafts forever. I know they’re there.
I love the written word. Mine AND yours, and all my favorite authors. Thank you all for contributing to my passion!
