I'm just about at the end of my week of blogging about blogging. I've written more than 50 posts now, and visited quite a few other blogs. I've come to the conclusion that it is a love/hate relationship.
1. I love to write, and blogging sort of nudges me into writing more regularly.
2. I hate it when blogspot is contrary, and I can't even get to the posting page.
3. I love reading what other people have written.
4. I hate it when I enjoy someone's post, but can't think of anything to leave in comments.
5. I love the discussions that get started.
6. I hate the anger and bitterness that is sometimes revealed.
7. I love hearing people's stories.
8. I hate sad endings.
9. I love it that so few of the blog stories end unhappily--despite great challenges and difficulties, most end with an expression of faith in God.
10. I hate it when I know what I want to say, but feel that what I said is not what I meant.
11. I love looking at the pictures, graphics, and beautiful designs on other blogs.
12. I hate it that I am having such a difficult time learning to do the things I want to do.
13. I love the people who blog; I love the ones I visit, frequently or infrequently; I love the ones who visit my blog, and especially the ones who leave comments and links to their sites; I love the sense of community I see among bloggers who take the time to get to know each other, and support each other in hard times, and share the joy.
I hope this is the end of the week of blogging, since I have pretty much said all I have to say about blogging, at least for this week.
