If you’re an old-school blogger you already know my friend – the fantastic Asha Dornfest – but you may have missed her post calling back all the writers who may have fallen out of blogging over the years. You should go read it because it’s awesome and also because I’m suddenly seeing so many of the people I loved come back to blogging.
Blogging is hard. Sometimes you have shit to say. Sometimes you don’t. Your words can be powerful or silly or ignored. You can share too much or not enough. You can be hurt. You can be saved. You can share pictures of your cat. You can change the world. All of these things are true.
But mostly for me blogging is a way to say, “Hi. I’m here. You’re here too. We’re a little less alone than we were yesterday.”
So today let’s celebrate blogging. If you’re an old-school blogger or new one share your blog in the comments. Visit each other. Grow the communities that we need to make the world a better place.
And if you don’t have a blog, share the blogs that you love in the comments. Sometimes encouragement is the only thing that keeps tortured writers writing so let’s love the shit out of each other, y’all.
