This will probably be short because I have to go to Yoga in a little while. But I've been reading blogs this morning and *accidentally deleting* comments (I'm such a klutz sometimes). And I noticed that some people compare their blogs with other blogs. Maybe this is normal, I don't know. However, I just wanted to say that to me a blog is a slice of one's life (albeit a small one) that part which a person chooses to share. It isn't a competition... or at least it's not for me (I'm afraid that I've never been competitive - probably why I don't care much for games).
Before I blogged, I journaled; first in tablets, then online. Why? Dunno. But I've been doing it since I was a child and would do it whether anyone read them or not. I do appreciate the readers... and the comments. It makes the whole process more interactive. And you get to make online friends (this is a plus!). Writing in my journals never accomplished this. It has always been a way to voice my feelings so for me it's probably psychologically beneficial. Blogging is a bit different. I share more of what I'm doing and thinking and less about personal stuff... or possibly the personal stuff gets a bit 'camouflaged'.
And lastly, I find that blogging helps me categorize my days, weeks, months, and years. I can go back and see what I was doing back on February 1, 2003 (or close - in this case it's Feb 2, 2003 - 10 years ago) - ... not important to anyone but me... but hey, it's my blog! As it stands, apparently (and I had forgotten this), this was around the tragic date that the Shuttle blew up over Texas. If you do check this link, you have to scroll down to Feb. 2nd.
Anyway, have a wonderful weekend! And Happy Blogging!
