Why Blog?

I was reading Renard Moreau’s blog this morning http://renardmoreau.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/just-pondering-part-352/ and his daily post got me thinking about what blogging has done for me.

Here’s what I wrote:

“For me blogging about my photography has opened many new doors and at the same time it has forced me to search for meaning in my work. I have only been blogging for about ten months and already I am in contact with a worldwide network of creative people who share my interests.
I could not have planned this but through writing about and sharing my art I have grown in so many ways. I’ll soon be 65 years old and only wish that something like blogging had been available to me 40 years ago as I set out on my journey into art school and my path of creativity.
To those who are just beginning their journey I say; write every day, create every day and stay engaged with the world around you. The planet is shrinking one post at a time and there are so many creative minds to connect with. What exciting times these are and what wonders await us all.”

    1. Thanks you opinionated old fart! Seriously though, I mention my age not to make an issue of it but to say to those who read my blog that there is nothing more exciting than staying in the fray, learning more each day and discovering yourself through learning and creating. Those who are at the start of their life’s journey cannot begin to comprehend what is in store for them but if they embrace change and stay alert to the world they live in there are wonders yet to be seen.

    1. I’m very happy to hear that Phyllis. I wish you great success with your blog too. Remember the key to success is persistence and passion for your subject. Thanks again.
