Walking down the pages of memory lane, it’s hard to believe that one can be captivated by the life that they themselves put down. While some part of you still remembers the fragment of emotions that goes with it, another part of you can scarcely believe that you were the person who captured those frozen moments.
Then again, that’s the magic of blogs and blogging. If you were to forget all the reasons that we invented to turn it into a commercialised source of income. If we were to forget all the soap opera like drama. If we were to forget all the arguments, all the bickering, all the pressure that blogs these days seem to stress open.
We would remember that magic.
The one that calms us down when we’re angry. The one that comforts us in the fear of the dark. The one that would listen to us when we’re broken. The one that cheers for us when we’re happy. The one that opens us up to new friends. The one that gives us some measure of opportunity and hope.
If you started blogging because you had something to say deep inside, you know what I am talking about. Because that’s all what blogging really is about, just you, your words and what you have to say.
Here in the fabric of the digital world. We’re not journalists or politicians or mothers or fathers or soldiers or civilians or blue collar or white collar. Here in the digital world, there are no titles to distinguish catagories or rank. Here in the digital world, we are just individuals with thoughts, feelings and opinions, each one ever so different from the another, each one ever so similar to the another. Here in the digital world, you are somebody and you are nobody.
That is the magic of blogging. A string that connects every one of us together and shows us that in our uniqueness, we are not alone. That there is someone one out there willing to listen to what we have to say, when we say it. That which entices us to return day after day to share and be shared, the stories and moments that make us who we are.
That which is the reason why I still blog after almost 6 years and would probably keep doing for as long as I have something to say.
