What a lesson I have learned about not allowing preconceived notions to limit choices. When I started this journey, I looked at writing a blog as intimidating. I saw these terrific blogs and imagined the writers as the cool clique and myself as the nerdy new student. I saw myself as an outsider hoping eventually to be acknowledged by the popular kids. I almost didn't do it because of this self-imposed intimidation.
Oh! How wrong I was! What a wonderful community I have joined. From the moment I began, there have been hands to hold, even shoulders that carried. An old friendship renewed. A new friendship strengthened. And that was just the beginning. Now that I have started to get my blogging sea legs, I have recently sought out other blogs -- to learn, to grow, to glean. I often look to my friends' blogs for direction and try out some of the blogs they recommend. Each time I have checked out a blog and chosen to follow, these terrific people have come over to support me. That means more than I can say.
So, please check out the blogs I follow. Support them. Support those that they follow. And if you have ever had the desire to try this -- do. There are friends here and they will help you carry the load. If you do start a blog, let me know. I'll be happy to add my name to your follow list.
Come on in...the water's fine!
