It Matters

I loved this. You probably will too.

The Road to There

The blogoshpere is a big place, and getting bigger every day.  Do you ever think that what you’re saying, writing, is being lost in the noise of the crowd – that no one really hears your voice and even if they do, it doesn’t matter?

I read a very compelling post the other day about the loss of a blogger friend.  It is a sad story, but more than that, it is a true testament to the impact we as individuals have on one another through this seemingly tiny space we hold in the big, beautiful blog world.

Did you write something funny yesterday?  It’s a good possibility you made at least one person laugh.  Post a pretty photo or recipe to try?  You appealed to someone’s senses.  Did you write about a struggle?  I’m sure at least one person could totally relate.  Perhaps you shared a quote or…

  1. You know….this makes think of Roy Madden. I still miss him. We were only Facebook friends, but he always made me laugh. He would share things he thought I would like. Most of all he always had kind things to say. “You crack me up….” “We would totally be real friends if you lived in Ireland.” Stuff like that. I can’t tell you the last time a close friend (other than my #ladiesladies) have ever said such kind things to me. When he went MIA I had the same thoughts she did. Worst part? It SUCKS that most of the time no one says how much they enjoy someone until they are gone.
    Words do matter. Be it in a blog, a post, letter or verbally. Thanks for sharing and helping me to reflect this morning. XOXO

  2. Thanks for the repost. I don’t share on any social media like I once did, and people said that they missed me. I guess the reason I don’t share any more is that I am so concerned about the image my extended family has of me. Once I became facebook friends with all my brothers and sisters in law and my husband, I don’t want to share my feelings. I feel too exposed. It’s funny how I can share with my BNL friends or theater friends, but I can’t share with the ones I care most about. What does that say about my psyche? Don’t tell me, I don’t want to know… Really, I don’t want to know… I think I already know.

    • I absolutely know what you mean! My family is least interested and least connected with my blog (which often more accurately reflects what’s really cookin’ in my head), and I’m less likely to censor myself here. Obviously! I’m a bit, maybe a lot more careful on FB too. Maybe we share parts of ourselves more freely with those we think will celebrate those particular parts??

  3. This is wonderful. It really does feel like what I have to say doesn’t matter. Most of my family have no clue or really care what I write. Sad but I think true for most bloggers. But it can get you done. Thanks for posting for a reminder.
