My oxygen and my sanctuary

I'm referring to my blog of course and by extension my participation in the whole blogosphere. It's ironic that when I'm extremely busy, the thing that suffers the most is my blogging and yet this is the place that feels like home.

It is my bridge over troubled water.

  • It is my oxygen because it has become a necessity for me to blog. I can think of no other place where my ideas can freely breathe and take to the air.

  • It is my sanctuary because it is where I can recharge and lay down my thoughts, anxieties and questions without reprisal.

    Through TheWinningAttitude I found the most wonderful quote by Zig Ziglar. I shared it over at Liz's blog today.

    The greatest good we can do for others is not just to share our riches with them, but to reveal theirs.

    I couldn't find a better way to describe why I started TheGoodBlogs with my good friend Tealeaf aka Tony.

    My greatest joy has always been helping others exceed their own expectations and perceived limitations. I guess this is just another manifestation and fulfillment of that life-long calling.

    Blogging should be joy, when you feel it is a chore, then it is time to look deep within to see if you're still doing it for the right reasons.

    My favourite Zig quote is:-
    'You can have everything in life that you want, if you will just help enough other people to get what they want'

    Blogging is how I get my mind back in order and calm myself down after a day running after my 1 yr old.

    Since becoming a SAHM it is also the way that I stay connected with how the people of the world operate. I love reading other people's blogs and getting a glimpse of what makes them tick.

    Hello Amanda
    I concur. I write a lot of software so there's always the danger of being disconnected. Being part of a blog community keeps me connected and stops me from just breathing my own air.

    Hi, I didn't realise that you connected a dot to my post about mingling until I went over to Liz's blog. Thank you.
