An old blogging friend of mine has recently returned to the blogosphere, and so we were both keen to catch up and see what we had missed. Yet again, I was reminded of how people come and go in these parts of town. It comes of no surprise to me that blogging can be compared to life. You go to a new school (begin blogging), you meet new classmates (bloggers), you become close with some of them (Likes, comments and more), and then school ends (they leave). After that, you are left to navigate the stormy waters on your own. Until you go to another school and meet a new set of classmates. And so the cycle continues.
Even though I have not been blogging for as long as some of the blogging veterans, I have seen a fair share of people come and go. It gives me pleasure to say that this blog is about 2.5 years old, and I hope to keep adding the candles on the cake. I am not going anywhere. Or so I think. (If I do disappear without a word one day, please check up on me.)
Blogging is not for everyone. It can definitely be time-consuming, and it can even feel like a waste of time sometimes, but, under certain circumstances, it can be the greatest of journeys.
Thank you to those who were a part of my world, but left. You made a difference in my blogging experience by sharing your writing, your feedback regarding my posts, and more.
Thank you to those who have been here for a while. You continue making a difference, and I genuinely appreciate you. Feel free to reach out if you ever consider quitting.
Thank you to those that I have not met yet, but will. I look forward to discovering you. You are the hope for a brighter future.
