I started blogging, to share a few short stories and poems, and got far more than I ever bargained for.
Entering a Virtual World, A Global Community
As the sun travels further West, casting shadows on my sundial, and the Earth rotates on its axis, I’m reminded of the scale of the planet we occupy. It’s scary to think that I am just one of seven billion occupants, a small grain of sand, a mere worker-ant.
It’s easy, in the face of such vastness, to feel inconsequential, that my voice doesn’t matter. Why should anyone listen?
I now believe that having a huge audience isn’t all that matters. If you have the passion for your subject matter, in my case story telling and poetry, and the conviction to keep going, then you will find your audience.
I’ve made connections with people all over the globe. I’ve reached out to people from five continents; people from different religions; people for whom English isn’t their birth language. I’ve done all this without leaving my small village in Wales, and that, for me, is what makes blogging so awesome.
I’d love to hear your story. What part of the world do you live in? How did you come to blogging?
