Thanks for giving me your input on blogging. I don't want to blog anonymously because I don't want people to spend time trying to unmask me. Also, I don't want to say things that I wouldn't feel comfortable saying to someone's face. These two items generally go hand-in-hand, because if I say something I wouldn't say to someone's face, and later my identity becomes known to the rest of the world, I'll end up regretting saying that too-blunt comment.


Also, I wish you continued good luck with the soul-searching. I recommend doing what I'm about to do. Vacation. Aw yeah.

Mexico here I come.

Hi Scheherazade,

I wish we had had more time to talk too! It was great to meet you. I didn't meet as many people as I would have liked to meet. But everyone I did meet was friendly, kind and fun.

I agree with you about "free". The thought of blogging for money doesn't sit well with me, at least at the moment. If I did get money from my blog - I'd turn it into a charity machine :)! I'll blog for non-profit.

Blogs mean a lot to me too. Were you at Barlow's session? He hit on what it means to be human, that desire to connect, to say what you feel and to be heard. I think many of us, whether we explicity state it or realize it, are blogging for that connection.

I feel pretty passionate about blogging, how it's changed my life, how the people I've met have become friends...and how that all seems silly to say. Yet it's true.

My husband and I were talking last night (he also blogs) about what this community is. I think that at least for some, it is a community about authenticity. It is where we can be individuals and express ourselves. It is also where we can share, come together and create community. We can connect with our neighbors, not only geographically, but especially with those who are close to us in emotions, spirit and morals...all through these words we type onto a screen...all these bits and bytes that bring blessings....

thanks for blessing me...I'm glad we met!

It is easy to see that you are impassioned about your writing. I wish I had got your ability to write. I look forward to more updates and will be returning.
