I haven't been blogging for very long, perhaps two or three months, once I actually understood a little of how to find my way around. I enjoy it so much and I now understand the emotion that so many others express. You see, I did not expect to care. I thought that blogging was a world of anonymity. A one-on-one relationship with my computer.
Not too long ago, I met someone who was taken to the depths of despair by a loss that I have come too close to experiencing in my own life. Twice. When my new bloggie friend shared her own experiences, her description was such that I. Was. There. I felt every emotion she felt. The tree she leaned on also left marks on the side of my face as my tears joined hers in silent, heart-wrenching sobs.
Though I have not met this lady in person and I have only known her for a very short time through Bloglandia, she is now in my heart to stay. Are there things you were surprised by in becoming a blogger? What experiences have you had?
