CONNECTING THE DOTS ONE AT A TIME

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Can it be...

We spend most of our lives following cues and rules. The lights are green we go, the lights are red we stop. We take orders from our employers, requests from our friends. We walk into restaurants and are given menus. We watch TV and go out and buy what they tell us. Buy now and save.

24/7 we are driven by cues and rules more than we think or would like to admit

Except for your blog...

Fire up that browser and the cursor awaits, it is your choice, your words, your thoughts.

Do you ever think of your blog as the most important outlet for your creative energy each and every day?

For most of us, we may meet 10 people in person everyday, speak to another 5 or 6 and email a couple more....

With your blog you could reach 100 or maybe 1000. The world (not just your friends, colleagues and neighbors) can continue to listen even though you've stopped talking.

Do you ever think of your blog as the single most important short-term and long-term impact you may ever have on this planet?

Yesterday, almost 700 people joined in the conversation at Successful Blog. One post, 700 comments.

Your blog is a place where people connect, interact, converse... because they choose to...

Do you ever think of your blog as the most important conversation of your day?

You never cease to amaze me with your thinking and writing. I could hear the wonder in the spaces between the words.

Liz,

Yesterday was the best inspiration for today.

While my blog usually ends up being some sort of update on my son, I like to think that there are special days where I was able to share a little more than a log of activities with the readers. Such as giving an insight into life in a country completely different from the one most readers live in (the US).

I also always enjoy your thoughts and pondering....

Yes, it is, most of the time, simply because the rules that matter to me are the only ones that apply. I do interact with about 60 people at work everyday, email a few dozens, call my parents and chat with friends briefly. But those I speak to on my blog are all my friends, they come, we chat, my blog, their blog, it's all great.

And you are right, what happened over at Liz's was highly inspirational

Hi Amanda, you give us a wonderful lens to a place that most of us have never been and with such a warm perspective.

Hi Alina,
For you and many of us, the blogosphere is a real and integral part of our lives.

The most wonderful part is meeting people like you, something that would never have happened otherwise.
