In my opinion, blogging is all about sharing a part of yourself. If someone can learn something or be helped by your blogging, then it is well worth it to blog. So, I blog…sometimes. 🙂
I don’t have time to read all the many blogs I’m subscribed to or have voluntarily offered to follow, but I try. I find that I learn something about the other out there in the world, too.
Communication is so essential in our lives, for it the woof and warp of life itself! It IS life! Life survives and thrives by and with and in communication with the other. There wouldn’t be so many divisions in every area of life if we actually sat down and got in communication, now would there?
And that, that is in communication, is in community…. Oh, how I love the word community. From that we get communion*.
Have a wonderful rest of the day! And thanks for allowing me to commune with you.

Just when it seems that life couldn’t get any better (I just published another book), there are obstacles I must overcome to keep doing what I want to in life. And that’s an every day occurrence. Since I am an author, illustrator, blogger, etc., then writing and publishing a book isn’t but half the battle. It’s getting ‘myself’ out there.
It’s really about connecting with people, getting to know them face to face or via social media. It’s having a following but also following others that are good common sense kinds of folks. Having a platform, a website, a blog to write, a brand, marketing and promotional tools are just some of what is needed after the fact of publishing. Perhaps it comes at the same time or before. But it’s all relative.
I suppose this all falls under communication.
Seems like a daunting task at times. 🙂
It’s not very often in life one is able to be in a very remote area yet be surrounded with such a feeling of love and community. Perhaps it is all the prayers that are protecting us in this area of Fairview, Michigan. Or perhaps it is just the good thoughts and energy that is expended from these hard-working folks called the Amish. Whatever it is, I feel like I am contributing to this feeling-by my prayers and good thoughts, too.
