What I love about blogging

I love to know that the weather is unseasonably warm in other parts of the world too, and that Spring seems to be arriving a little early, that someone can't see the sunset because there is a mountain in the way, and that another rarely gets mist or fog because they are too high up. I love to know what people have been making, doing and cooking, and sometimes what has made them laugh or cry. I like to see other people's pets, including dogs who know things, and sometimes families, their local wildlife, ranging from bluejays, to black squirrels, to moose or even kangaroos. I love to follow links through beautiful blogs and sites, to see strange and wonderful films that I would never have found by myself, to read travel reports from around the world or from somewhere I have seen myself, but through another's eyes.


I love to share what I have been making or doing, what I have seen or felt, and the fact that people respond to that-and often make me laugh when doing so! I would like to try to respond more to what people say, and am not very good at that, but time moves on so fast and sometimes the moment has gone.

I think there should be a more attractive word for what blogging is, but stuck with it we are, so that is the one I love. (I began to speak like Yoda then!)

Love it!!!!

P.S.-the picture is from the car park this morning when I went to buy my Mum some flowers for Mothers Day tomorrow.

I agree with you one hundred percent, Sarah. Blogging is a goofy word for a wonderful way to make friends and learn about the real world.

I agree too, it is a goofy word for what it means to people.
And like you I enjoy seeing how talented people are (like you) what the other side of the world is like. You are welcoming in Spring while we are saying goodbye to Summer and hello to Autumn. Certainly makes the world see a lot smaller.

Have a great week. xx

Yes, blogging is super because we all seem to discover chums all over the place who we could have a cup of tea with!

Blogging has been one of the most fun experiences for me. It's great to learn and see so many things and ideas from all these different people. It makes coming online, a joy.

I also agree with you. Blogging is a silly name for something so "big" yet still one to one cozy! We don't celebrate Mother's Day until May, maybe I should tell my girls I want two Mother's Day this year!

You sum it up so well. It is a shame though that the word blog doesn't seem to match what it is.
