Top 5 Reasons why Blogging is making the world a better place

10 Aug

I’ve only been a writer in this blog community for a short amount of time but I’ve had the most positive experiences with it.  I really do think it’s making this crazy world a better place for the following reasons:

1.  It’s bringing different cultures together from around the globe

Blogging really allows people from many different cultures and sub-cultures to share and relate to each other on similar topics.  People can connect through traditions they share or even favorite foods.  The world has a lot more in common than people tend to believe.

2. Everyone is a journalist!

If it’s new and something I’ve never heard before, it’s news!  I love reading blogs where people cover real life issues from their perspective.  Articles like this show the rest of the world how the communities in the midst of such conflict are coping and/or feeling.

3.  Blogging expands your mind

I can’t even begin to explain how much I have learned from other people’s blogging!  From photo tips to good recipes, any new knowledge is good knowledge.  I even credit my new found enjoyment of writing to the blogging world.  I always loved writing concert reviews or book reviews but now my writing curriculum has expanded as well as my brain.

4.  It enhances your creativity

From the many how-to’s to just sharing simple decorating styles, there are so many ideas to bounce off of and create your own ideas.  People are putting things on their blogs specifically to share with other people.  It’s the mecca of creativity.  I’ve seen many inspiring blogs,like this one, that have sparked completely new and compelling ideas.

5.  Sharing is caring

If you are publicly publishing something you’ve written, you are sharing your thoughts and I’m reading them.  Everyone has there own tips about life, love, friendship, adventure, photography, etc.  I love the idea of this online database to search for info you are looking for or even stumbling upon something you weren’t looking for.

So to my fellow bloggers, keep blogging!  I’m enjoying every minute of reading your point of view : )

I was recently given a really cool and unique gift from my step mom, Vicki!  She has such a great eye for special and personalized gifts for people.  She gave me this hand-painted journal:

I love it because it’s unique and I feel like my creative thoughts or bucket list ideas always come to me at the most random times.  It’s the perfect size because it can always fit in my bag and it’s inspiring to me.  It even brought out a bucket list to create a new painting.  I used to love painting and had to do it for graphic design courses.  I have a few friends who are great painters, including the one and only Chelsea Regnani, so maybe I will have to organize a painting party in my new backyard full of beautiful flowers with painting friends : )
