I am very new to this blogging lark, and not entirely sure if what I am doing is right! However, tonight I just worked out how to view comments on past blog posts. I felt so honoured to see comments from other bloggers, people who do not know me personally and have no obligation to read my posts, let alone comment on them. Yet, they have taken the time to look at my ramblings and have offered me support, complimented me and told me that they have been moved by my words. I feel priveleged to be a part of this community albeit only in a very small way, and I am humbled by knowing that people care.
I hope that in time I will understand exactly what I am doing and do justice to this incredible media that we are fortunate enough to have at our fingertips. We are living in a time of great technological possibilities. The concept of being able to write what is essentially a journal, which in the past would have been words on paper lost to a drawer or shoved under a bed never to be shared, is quite overwhelming. Yet knowing that you can reach strangers, make friends and touch people with your written words on a huge scale is mind blowing! This is a journey that I have only just embarked on, but I'm ready to travel to wherever it takes me.
Thank you so much. xxx
