What is a blog? In essence, it is a weblog – a series of posts like a diary (initially) posted onto a web-based platform – web(log). So, what is a blogger? A blogger is the someone posting their thoughts, ideas, and expertise (depending on their niche if they have one) and sharing it all on interwebs on the weblog. So…bloggers write on weblogs – We Blog.
I started blogging in 2007 when I was young and quite angsty. I shared my thoughts with the world. Shared what I thought the deal is. My thoughts are logged – much like anything we do on social media. Wait! I just realised I’ve been doing this for ten years! My second-longest relationship ever 🙂 . Anyway, happy side track aside, those of us who log our ideas and brainfarts on the interwebs are the ones who have released ourselves from writer-constipation (unless you’re writing a novel…then kudos to you). I find that there are many out there who are not so extroverted. In fact, we write better than we speak. We have a voice and sometimes (if you’re like me) you are so socially awkward and tend to say the wrong things at the worst times even though you mean well and the voice gets drowned out. Spurting it out here in black and white allows us to better formulate our thoughts. If we’re fortunate we grow an audience. If we’re really, really lucky we find our tribe.
I am a blogger. I am a writer. I follow blogs because I love to read and to know what’s going on in the world around me. I love sharing my blog findings with everyone I know and am quite shameless at promoting blogs I love. Ask vivabuys, love, strongHer and TheArtofGrowingUp. I promote my family – biological and otherwise. I have had to start a TBR (to be read) list for blogs I like because…well…reading time is limited. I thought I’d use this space for just that. Sharing my blogloves with you. Who knows, maybe there is a blog or two that might resonate with you. So, every two weeks (edit: every so often) we’ll do a #Blog feature to share those voices.
If there is a blog out there that you like please feel free to share with me – I love new finds. I really cannot wait to share!
