I am supposed to be studying for a quiz tomorrow, and I definitely had another post in mine, but I am really fired up and couldn’t help but post this.
Why do we blog?
I would venture to say that it is because it feels good. It feels good to write about something you’ve been struggling with and have people understand. Or to ask for advice and find someone that has the answer. To share a funny story and have someone laugh with you. To share some painful and have someone cry with you.
There is a diabetes blog out there that I dislike. I stopped reading it because it made me mad. It was a glimpse into a future that I do not want to see. But I understand why the blogger writes. It is a therapy for her, a release for her. A place where she finds people who understand her pain. I’m glad she writes.
I read a blog today and it made me so angry. So angry that I had to leave a comment (well THREE actually). Unless I have completely misunderstood this community, there is not one of us out there who blogs because they have it all figured out. Who thinks they have it all together.
So let’s be kind to each other.
If you haven’t done it already, go to this blog and leave a nice, supportive comment. If the blogger is anything like me, I know she’ll appreciate it.
