To Blog or Not To Blog – That Is the Question!

To Blog or Not To Blog – That Is the Question!
So Shakespeare said it slightly different but that is my question for today. Over the last several days I have been reading blogs here on Spark. I figured people take the time to write I should take a little time to read.
I have written just a few blogs and they have enabled me to put forth some thoughts and ideas. It has been a good thing for me. I often sit here at my desk and think that while others struggle with their daily problems at least they are making some progress. I seem to be swimming against the tide. Yes I have those little problems that come with age, yes I have financial setbacks, and yes family seems to cause me some angst. On the whole though, I am a relatively peaceful person. I can pay my bills, (I work longer hours if I am short on money) I can work through my aches and pains and the thing that helps is coming on to Spark.
Some blogs I read make me cry for the hardships some face, some make me smile because I am going through the same and now know I am not alone. So, in the long run – Blog people - Blog! I will read and if not me maybe you will be helping other people just get through a tough day. Maybe you will be helping yourself. Heck! Maybe you will make their day.

P.S. Just noticed that my blog yesterday was : To Mini-challenge or Not to Mini-challenge. I think I have a continuing theme here. emoticon

    Yes, I agree. In our overly busy, disconnected lives in the first world, I think many people need to tell another human being what's on their minds, but not it the truncated ways of texts or emails. Oh for the kitchen table talks of old! (If they really took place for people.) I was blessed to experience it in an ordinary, not a romanticized, way growing up in the 1960s on a farm. Ours was NOT a Norman Rockwell dream. Yet each day someone listened to me.

    I tend to ramble if you call it blogging. I just ramble. My high moments!

    Yes, blogging can help the writer and thr reader. What I find glaring in some commentary is how few people actually read through, and how often a central point is missed.
