As some of you may have noticed, I have had difficulty posting lately. What you do not know is that I am still writing … snippets … here and there … mostly for myself. Without going into all the hurtful details, let’s just say that someone who I once looked up to as a blogger and aspiring writer has been acting maliciously … possibly unknowingly, but I have come to believe that she knows exactly what she is doing and does not give a flying fuck whose feelings get hurt because she is right in her own little narrow-minded world. Due to things she has openly said to me and to others, I have often second guessed myself as a writer, and I have considered taking down this blog several times over the last six to nine months. This same person has unknowingly alienated herself from most of my social networking and blogging friends because of her inappropriate and insensitive comments. This begs the question: Where do I go from here? Do I allow her to control my destiny?
The short answer is HELL NO! I WON’T GO! It pleases me. Through this blog I have learned so much about myself and how others view me. I cannot tell you how many relationships I have built and/or repaired via blogging. Blogging has totally enhanced the way I communicate with others in the real world. The blogging community, overall, has strengthened my trust in the inherent good nature of people. Blogging has enabled me to collaborate better with others … even when we agree to disagree. Blogging has enhanced the creator and innovator within me. It has permitted me to gain greater alignment with writers who inspire me to aspire before I expire. In brief, blogging has allowed me to engage and be to be engaged by other writers.
What has blogging done for you lately?
