Some folks blog to express themselves, others are on a mission, be it politics, religion or maybe even fancy health kicks. Some blogs promote websites, others, themes. Blogs can be a window to the soul or a daily secret diary shared with the world.
Me? I blog for fun. And it’s had wonderful rewards.
I’ve gotten to know many great people from blogging, too many to mention. They’ve become super friends of ours. We’ve been lucky to meet many of them and find that it seems we’ve known them for years. Some of them are even happy to meet US!
These blogging friends have been with us through think and thin. Great pals when things are going well, great encouragers when things are not.
Then there are some that it’s great fun to kid with, and get some fun kidding in return. A friend in need of a John Deere riding lawn mower comes to mind.
Not to mention some blog friends give great technical advice on all sorts of things, from great places to visit and things to see, the latest computer goodies, to the best chili recipe known to mankind.
It makes you pause and think: “How did we ever live without blogging and all our virtual friends?” Not sure, but I wouldn’t ever want to go back.
One really cool thing about our blog is some connections to long lost friends and shipmates. In the past week or two, I’ve reconnected with a close friend that moved away and a great shipmate that I served with in the early 1990s. Marti just reconnected with her best childhood friend that she sadly lost contact with years ago and has now reopened that friendship.
All because of our blog. It does chronicle our life on the road, our wonderful grandkids and the things we do in our fulltime RV life. But more importantly, it connects up with people all over the place (world) that we’ve come to know and appreciate.
