I'm Trying Dammit

I do try to blog often. It just doesn't work that way. I get a great idea but when I go to put it on paper, POOF....gone. Poor thing probably died of loneliness and left for better climes. You know....like the wind. Don't know where it went but gone just the same.

I have been reading many blogs done by you fabulous ladies. I have run the gambit of emotions over them. Laughed, cried, been made thoughtful and reflective and been thankful that I am not going through what some of you are. My heart and prayers go out to you all for sharing your lives. I can tell you something ....Are you listening cause this is important. Okay.....You may think your lives are mundane but they aren't!!!! The comments that others are making should tell you that. You think THEY would waste thier time if YOU weren't interesting....come on ladies. It is through your blog you share yourself, your life, your dreams and hopes, your families, your ideas and your love. To others You are the line between hope and despair. To still others YOU are an inspiration. Yes I said INSPIRATION....for example....because of you, I am going to try to be a better blogger in 2009. See ...inspiration!!! I do know what I am talking about here....

I know some of you think you are just "amusing" yourself. Just sorta putting down random day to day things. But to others it is truly sharing. Think about it....these strangers, these readers of your blogs, are in your life. They know a lot about you as a person, your likes and dislikes, your children, husband and whether or not you like cooking, horseback riding, painting and the list goes on. Someone out there needs to hear about the "crappy" day you had because they thought they were having one too. Then they realized they aren't out there alone. That life is sometimes not fair. That it can kick you one day and make you fly the next.

So ladies, back to that lost thought I couldn't find. I thank each and everyone of YOU for writing faithfully and openly. I will read and I will TRY to be a better blogger.

Hmmm. My mom once told me, "Don't TRY. DO." So there.

You are sooo right. I started my blog just thinking it'd be a nice way for the 'family' to keep up with the things the boys were doing. But once I really started jumping out there and reading other blogs I have found a whole new world of friends I've never met in real life but miss dearly when I don't get to hear about for a day or two.

Awesome post!!!! There have so many times I've been having a crappy day and I'll sit down to check out some of my favorite blogs and it always puts a smile on my face!! And I also love the idea that people take the time to comment on my blog, that somehow what I wrote touched them in one way or another!

What an inspiring post. The blogosphere IS such an amazing place. And I truly admire how so many people wear their heart on their sleeves online. I aspire to be a better blogger this year as well.

You know, you are right! It is a way of connecting, of giving and receiving, and for me, a way out of fairly isolated life. Thanks for the lift.

Good luck being a better blogger! Although I love your writing now, so don't change that!

Great post! Love your blog!

I am almost always surprised at the posts which get the most comments--you never can tell what is going to connect with readers. So I absolutely agree with you that it's best just to write "faithfully and openly"!

Beautiful and heartfelt post! I couldn't agree with you more. After reading a person's blog for awhile it really is as if you know them...

Now I better go and try to write something ;)
