A couple of weeks ago McVal challenged me to think about why we blog. At first I didn't really think much about it. Initially I started blogging to work on my interest in photography, but it has turned into so much more.
It has really become a way to connect with people outside my realm of Smalltownland. To learn about how people function in different environments and how their lives are really different from mine......and often so similar. I learn about their hobbies, their family, and their ups and downs in life.
Please meet a mere handful of my friends.......
I have met a wonderful lady who lives on an island off the coast of Scotland and blogs about her life on the family's sheep farm at, Home School on the Croft. The wind is so strong at her home that the laundry on the line flies horizontally. I am serious....she posted a picture of it.
There is Nancy who is living in Nebraska in an old farmhouse...be still my heart. She blogs about her daily farm life adventures and her awesome photography habit at A Rural Journal.
I also have the pleasure of having connected with wonderful people all over the world. Jay_on_Tour's blog takes you on tours of the most picturesque cities in all of England. His photography is like having your own personal travel agent.
Liesl blogs about her life on a farm in Africa. Yes, Africa with wild animals. She races endurance horses and farms with her husband.
And, last but not least, my favorite canine friend George, from Georgethelad. A Welsh Terrier who documents his excursions around the English countryside and the trips to the pub with his dad. It seems George does enjoy the froth from a good pint of Guinness.
At this point I may be a blogger forever. I don't know how I could give up all of these wonderful people I have mentioned.....and at least another hundred that I didn't mention.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
