blogging thing. I am still stuck with
the idea that blogs are supposed to be personal, a kind of a super-private
diary, which you still guard with two sets of locks and key. The naïve blogger in me never thought you
should be exchanging links, networking, making friends in a virtual world! I have always thought blogging is a solitary
thing. Something you do to put brilliant
(!) thoughts on the web so you won’t forget it and if somebody is reading your
thoughts in web format, would credit those brilliant thoughts to you.
am going to blog on a whim (no particular niche, no intended audience), I was
surprised that I need to follow and be followed. It was a total learning experience (and I am
still learning). I met very friendly,
helpful and interesting people in this virtual world. I joined a forum where we follow each other’s
blogs, but I suddenly realized that these bloggers are younger than I am, and
their interests are different than mine.
I am, first of all, a mom, and although make-up and clothes and “cam-whoring”
continue to fascinate me (although I rarely take pictures of myself anymore,
especially if it included my tummy part! Just headshots, please!), I felt I was
not part of their world. Hey, I am a
mommy. I need to hang out with selfless,
wonderful, amazing (ehem…) women who think like me! That was when I saw this BCBloggers badge on one mom blogger’s site.
It was interesting to find out that there is in full virtual reality a
community of mommies who follow each other seriously and not just for the sake
of increasing one’s page views or something.
I took a peep atmost of these member blogs and realized they have the
same storyline as mine!!! I asked Paula,
BC Blogger mommy, to include me in the community earlier this month, but I didn’t
have the guts to immediately sign up and
be a member, because I am still so new, with no brilliant posts or
something. I did have the BC Bloggers
badge, though. But, hey, I am taking the plunge now. My blog may be just a
month old, virtually a baby, but I hope I will be meeting wonderful people in
member of BC Bloggers. I am already in
touch with one of its members, Aileen of I Heart Good Health and Miss Aileen A,
and it is pure joy knowing her! I hope I
will be meeting more like her at BC Bloggers.
You, too, could be a part of this wonderful
community. All you need to do is follow
this link and sign up!
