You know who the bravest people in the blogosphere are as far as I am concerned?
The personal blogger.
This is my love letter to you.
Darling personal bloggers,
I love you. This is a love letter after all, and I see no reason to hold back on the important things in life.
Do you know that you have made my life a happier one?
I didn`t know that you were out there when I took a deep breath and started my blog. I didn`t know you are friends that I had not yet met. I didn`t know that I would think of you in my life outside the bloggersphere. I didn`t know that you would change my life.
I didn`t know it was possible to type in a webadress and to feel at home. Do you know why reading your blogs mean so much to me? Do you know why I keep coming back? When I visit your blog I get something that I can`t find anywhere else. I get to be with YOU. Wonderful, voulnerable, strong, honest, generous, opinionated, stylish you.
You are brave, you know that? You dare to believe that you have something to offer. You are a linedancer, balancing your personal life and your honesty, your shyness with your spunk, your self doubt with your confidence.
You reach out, you connect, you support, you retweet, you are in it with intention, not a savage blogger but a gentle one.
You inspire me. Your outfits, your book reviews, your thoughts, your replies to my comments. You make me feel good about me. When I visit your site you make me feel that I matter, that we are equal, never mind if I am a blogger or not. When I am reading your blog it does not matter how thin/fat/popular/lonely I am, when I am reading your blog I am hanging out with you, knowing that you are hanging out with me too.
You keep posting, spending hours writing your posts, taking your pictures, feeling voulnerable and not sucessful at times, and yet you keep going. For you. And for me. You keep at it, staying true to your self, not getting caught up in the whirlwind of popularity. No, you hold on to your blogging balls and you don`t give up. And eventually I find you and am happy you did not give up on blogging.
Darling personal bloggers, you are impacting our culture, our trends, our lives, me. Thank you for that.
Inclosed in this letter is a big kiss. Can you feel it?
I would love to connect with you!
