A community isn’t built or befriended,
it’s connected by offering and accepting.
Community is affinity, identity, and kinship
that make room for ideas, thoughts, and solutions.
Wherever a community gathers, we aspire and inspire each other intentionally . . . And our words shine with authenticity.
Blogging and Community
When we write our first blog post, we write for expression. We’ve something to say and we put it out there. Sometime along the way, people come to read what we’re writing — one person, many. Our blog turns from a website into a place where minds meet. How often do we consider the power of that?
Here’s what Mark said . . .
People want to do something meaningful. That is so true.
Thatâs why I love your site. You remind bloggers that this is only meaningful when we create in community. What we say must have a direct, positive affect on another personâor else weâre just stroking our own egos by building online archives of meaningless content.
Sure, we can pretend weâre writing for posterity. And we can overly fixated on a need for seeing with our own eyes how our work helps others.
But the central point remains. We are honest with others to encourage them to be honest. We give ourselves away to encourage others to give themselves away.
If everyone in the world did that, what a wonderful place it would be!
A successful and outstanding blogger said that.
