A blog is not a page torn from your diary,
A figment of your imagination,
The sum of your experiences,
Or a digital confessional.
Is is not a travel log, a poetry book, or a video channel.
It is more than that:
It is whatever you want to make it.
It is a conversation about whatever you like
Carried out between you, your selfs, and others,
As you climb together the mountain of consciousness,
Past the mists of awkwardness and shame and doubt .
And you speak as if you speak to good friends
Who are glad to hear you,
Who may like, who may comment, who may share
Or who may creep away unseen
Like lovers, like time, like everything else.
That’s okay – they may return some day
When they have more to say.
For my part, I blog to discover myself,
And to discover you,
And I want you to know that
Whoever you are,
Whatever you do,
I am happy to meet you,
And let us get to know each other,
Share our thoughts,
For the climb up the mountain is steep,
And we have a long way to go…
