Blogging: More Than Words

There are approximately 3 gazillion blogs in the blogosphere and I’d be willing to guess about 33% of them are mom blogs. These are guesstimates Friends; real stats require research.

Blogger’s blog (look, it’s a noun and a verb) for a variety of reasons. Some bloggers keep online diaries, some are building a brand, some are aspiring writers, and some are a culmination of all these things. No matter the reason behind the blog, most bloggers spend a great deal of time supporting each other and contributing to the blog circle of life. I’ll be the first to admit that a blog is capable of changing your life; it changed mine.

Before I began blogging, I had no idea how much creative talent walked among me as a mother. That mom I exchanged numbers with a Back to School night, she may very well be a talented blogger with a unique voice. In fact, statistically, she probably is. Clever, witty, and ultra-savvy, bloggers are all around us – quietly observing, recording, and enlightening.

All of this endless talent has inspired me to do more, share more, learn more, and be more. Reading all of your amazing blogs has led me to become a better advocate, a more confident mother, a more sensitive friend, and a more focused writer.

I want to see my fellow bloggers grow and succeed because with each success comes a greater public awareness of the pivotal role bloggers play in their communities. Blogs have legitimate influence because they are more than just a bunch of published keystrokes; they are an exchange of ideas among writer and reader. Mom blogs support an entire sector of people caring for our youth across generational and gender boundaries. Amazing.

Whether my blog comforts a frazzled mother one day, gives someone the confidence to try that short haircut the next, encourages support of a children’s charity next Tuesday or simply makes someone laugh - at least it’s an offering. All I know is that it feels good.

To my fellow bloggers, keep bravely offering your truth. I’m learning from you daily. Thank you for the endless inspiration and support. I am proud to be on your team, and not just because I’d be scared to be against you (even though I totally am).
