Blog Surfing

I have been writing this blog for a few months now and I enjoy it profusely. I love writing entries and posting them up for people to see. I yearn to have readers like I did when I wrote for the university newspaper during my undergrad. Truth be told, I was never a journalist. Writing was just a hobby of mine.

I have written a personal journal for the past ten years and occasionally I will still write an entry in it. For the most part though, this blog has taken the place of that journal. My journal was labelled as personal. This blog is public. I want readers. I long for people to read my words and respond to them.

I have three readers that I know of. All of whom are personal acquaintances of mine. This changed yesterday though when I had several new comments posted up by someone I didn’t know. He posted some very thoughtful and intelligent comments. I surfed to his blog and read some of his posts. I was impressed with his writing too. I have added a link to his blog. Check it out In Search of Isis.

I clicked on a few of his links. I surfed to some recently published blogs and posted up comments. It was a very nice distraction reading all those different entries from different people. I spent an hour and a half doing my blog surfing but time just flew by. My journey took me to some blogs that I had no interest in whatsoever but I was able to find a few good ones.

Here are a few of the ones I enjoyed last night;

Maybe you will enjoy them too. Read on and please interact with your reading by posting a comment. Thank you.

  1. Well thank you for your kind words, Chasemarch.

    Blog surfing is a lot of fun and I certainly wouldn’t call it a waste of time.

    When I was in third grade, I moaned out loud one day about all the paper my classmates were using up for some assignment. My teacher told me something that I have never forgotten: It’s not waste if people are learning.

    So time spent browsing the thoughts of people all over the world is time spent learning.

    (Although I do hate “my-kid-is-so-cute, here’s a thousand pics of him” blogs!)

  2. I agree with you. I think I did learn a few things last night with my reading. I enjoy reading and think I might have to set some time aside to read good blogs on a more consistent basis.

    I also found a lot of sites where proud mothers posted photos of their children. I don’t see how these could appeal to anyone outside of their family. It is an interesting way for family members who live far away to share in the experience but perhaps there is a more private way for them to do that. I don’t know. To each his or her own, I guess.
