short stories, comment, articles, humour and photography
Another year over and done. Time to think of the good things to come rather than dwell on the past. Whether we blog about our pets, our pet hates, our petting or our pettiness, one thing we bloggers have in common is the will to do something, even if it is sometimes just to complain. We believe change is possible through action, so we act; we blog about stuff.
The positivity I see on so many blogs is impressive. Bloggers aren’t afraid to bare their souls in public, they think out loud. In general, you get what you see on the label. The amount of humour, support and goodwill bloggers show towards their fellow humans gives boundless hope for the future, despite all the negativity and needless paranoia filtering down from the very top.
Bloggers make people weep, laugh, empathise and socialise. Mountain ranges, oceans and borders no longer pose obstacles to forming friendships with people we will most likely never meet in person. We share our thoughts, hopes, ideas and creativity with little or no thought of reward. In an age the mainstream media appear to be letting us down, we try to inform each other of the true situation in our homes, our towns and our nations. We inform, we perform and we entertain. We must strive to keep things that way.
Spread the word! Blog, blog, blog, bloggers, together we do make a real difference!
