Invisible Writer

I notice that since I haven’t blogged regularly or consistently in quite some time, my readership has gone down to zero (or maybe one friend who reads just because they’re my friend). This business of being a deep thinker, feeler, writer, sharer of ideas seems to be a pretty thankless one, unless of course, you’re wildly famous. Who knows, maybe I will be one day. ūüôā

I must be getting old (haha) because while I see the relevance of social media, I also see the potential poison of it. You have to use it carefully, lest you’re swept up into checking it multiple times each HOUR just to see if someone posted something new. It is addicting. Not good. Also, there is so much moronic content on social media…I can’t take it sometimes. There is also a lot of good, but, you have to really hone in on it.

Social media caters to short attention spans (maybe even exacerbates them if already present). So, the more thoughtful content (larger pieces of writing that you actually have to READ) can get passed by. Maybe I need to pick more engaging content to write about?? But, I feel like the human condition is plenty relatable and seems like it should be more apt to garner more interest than it does.

I find myself a bit cynical and bitter that my writings are only read if I post about salsa dancing (my other blog). While I adore dancing, I tire of writing about it. I’d much rather write about the day to day struggles we all face and hopefully encourage someone along the way. So, for now, I am a bit invisible. Hopefully the more I write, the more folks I’ll connect with who have similar interests and focus.

A Gift

Hi y’all! First I want to thank all of you for the LOVE and support you’ve shown me over the past several days. I’m truly honored that so many of you responded with words of affirmation and encouragement to my most recent post.¬† I feel so blessed.¬† Today, I want to stay in the vein of thankfulness by talking about a Gift.¬† Let me explain.

I believe it is a Gift to be able to be a part of this blogging community. But also, it is a Gift to be able to express ourselves through writing. To be able to put words together in such a way as to convey thoughts, information or ideas to share with others is special. Each of us in our own way, has taken the leap of faith to begin sharing ourselves with the world through our words…through blogging.¬† Do you remember when the idea to blog became a reality for you? That day you decided to “go for it” and “see what happens”…. You entered the blogosphere with your very first post.¬† You may have wondered if you’d even get a response or reaction.¬† You wondered if anyone would care to read what you had to say.¬† Or maybe you are using blogging as a way to work through a difficult situation. It’s a release for you,¬†somewhat¬†cathartic.¬† Whatever got you here, I’m sooo glad you came.¬† I’m so glad to read others’ ideas, recipes, thoughts, encouraging words, stories.¬† You are amazing, brave, strong, creative…full of faith, hope, love, vigor, and so much more.

May we all see and know and understand what a great Gift we possess in writing.  It is both a privilege and a responsibility.
