When I started blogging nearly 12 months ago I never thought it would have taken me so far.
I have met new friends, learned so much about the world around me and also learnt about myself.
The online world can sometimes be a tough one. It is all to easy to sit back in the comfort of your lounge room, office, bed, train, toilet or wherever you chose to connect from and forget that you are connecting with real people.
Sometimes we can all be guilty of playing the judgement card. Or quickly typing a comment without thinking of how those words might make the reader feel. I call to everyone to please think before hitting the submit button. If you disagree with what someone has written that’s fine, simply click away, or unfollow them rather than writing a nasty reply.
The online world can be a place to hide, from the mundane of the daily grind. I’m sure for some people it is a place to adopt a different persona to real life. I know I personally do my best to keep it real. I pride myself on my ‘what you see is what you get’ attitude to life in general & my online life is no different.
I am thankful every day for the online village I have created to help me through my journey in life.
I believe that what we share with each other via blogging, twitter, Facebook, instagram or any other online means is so special.
I have witnessed many scenes of generosity, I have wept with sadness & also joy. I have shared in people’s births, deaths & triumphs.
So today I just want to say thank you to every single person who I have connected with. You have all made an impact on my journey. You are all so special & I thank you for sharing part of your life with me.
