I will be out for the weekend and I realised how much am I going to miss my blog and my blogger friends.
If I look back at the last couple of months, I can see how many wonderful and talented people I have met in the blogosphere. People who write about varied subjects, people who are as different from me as cheese and chalk, people who have very similar interests in life as me, people who have known me differently and now also are my blog buddies and are co bloggers. The experience has been extremely rich and rewarding.
There are so many blogs that I love reading and keep going back to get my fill every day; some of which are:
Many many other such ones are part of my blog roll that I visit every day to laugh, to think, to feel inspired, to feel touched, to act, to respond …. and everyday is a new experience.
I have received responses to my posting in many different ways, some helpful tips, some friendly pats, some kind comments, some helpful critiques, silent but regular visitors … All these make me want to write more.
I have learnt from my friends about blog etiquette, about various techniques and tools that I can use, about what it means to be a blogger and why do we write and about passion, rigour, commitment and focus. I am so grateful and appreciative of all my friends who comment, who visit and who teach me to be a better person and a blogger every day.
What about you? how’s your experience of connecting in the blogosphere?

>@restless – hey, it is, isn't it? well I am back but been insanely busy and missing not writing here. will see you soon.
>Hi Sharbori,the weekend has become a week now, and you have surely been missed :). There is also going to be a gap in the coming month or so where I'm probably not going to be blogging too much. I will miss it as it has been a very releasing medium for me. Initially i wrote as a way to keep connected and informed to the few people who write around me, but now i look at it as something beyond simply remaining connected. Now i don't so much bother about trying to share beyond the few people who read what i write now and then, if there is something specific i want to share with someone i e-mail them a link. I write for myself…but it always feels good to know that there are people around with whom i can share through their posts. Like you so nicely put it..'to laugh, to think, to feel inspired, to feel touched, to act, to respond …. and everyday is a new experience.'
>Hi Antara,thank you for pushing me gently! Hey, I miss this space too and I wish to come back as soon as possible. While I do write for myself, I also write for others, I like the connect, the sharing that the blog generates and I have a sense of dialogue with many people across the globe.I have been travelling insanely on work and even today i am at work. But perhaps that is another lesson to be learnt, i.e. if we truly feel passionate about something, how do we make time for it. And, I do feel passionate about blogging.will come back soon, very soon.thank you once again.
