To read or not to read

There’s always the problem of possibly being seen as an intruder when one writes a blog, or posts thoughts and photos on social media. I came across a fellow blogger’s post recently, and Angela put into words what so many bloggers think, I’m sure. Angela’s post points out that we blogger’s have a love of writing, but no expectation that everything we write will be important enough to be read by each and everyone of you who come across one of our posts.

We know you too have busy lives, and different priorities.

Of course, we’re happy if we have written something that strikes a cord with one, some, or all who comes across one of our posts. But like Angela, it is not an expectation that you read everything, or anything we write. I’m not going to say anymore on that, as Angela has worded it all so perfectly, and I can’t see any point in re-inventing the wheel. I’d love it if you could click on the link to Angela’s post below, and would love it if you read this post. I know that sounds like a contradiction given what I’ve just said, but this post is different – it really is! Please click on the link directly below and read what Angela says. It’s especially pertinent to all who post regularly on social media, or write on a public platform. I think you’ll find a mirror to how you you probably think about your own posts.

  1. I’m so glad you found the words fitting! I truly love writing and sharing, but it can be a delicate balance. It means a lot to me that you found the message spoke to you too. Thank you for sharing it with your readers. (And sorry about the weird comment thing. But I’m very grateful to hear from you!)

  2. Writing is an activity that is not just frim thr hreat and head but also can be cleansing, cathartic and very satisfying. When I frame it like that, it serms we write for ourselves, yet our blogs are public for anyone tp read so we are also writing for others, many we will never know or meet. Pubic writing gives us a little bit of immortality
