Blog Hopping

is for

I rather like looking at blogs! There's a few I visit regularly, once or twice a week, depending; others I look at perhaps once or twice a month, as they are not as actively posting. The "blogosphere" (a term that amuses me) is a parallel world; a world in which most of my "real life" friends have no idea exists (it's equal opportunity--they don't read my blog, nor anyone else's, so I don't take it personally!). I've discovered so many good ideas, thoughtful projects and the like from total strangers who have an innate need to share, bless their little cyber hearts! Altogether, I find it inspiring...and there are days when one could use a little inspiration!

For those of us who choose to live in the middle of nowhere, such as I, blogs provide a comforting connection. Believe it or not, there are folks out there who live very much the way I do and pretty much believe in the same things I believe in: be it politics, religion, lack of religion, hobbies, literature, food, obsessions, food-obsessions, yada yada yada. I can walk down to the post office and not always get that feeling locally. (And if you've ever been a square peg in a round-holed small town, you'll know exactly how that feels!)

Ok, what I'm saying has often been said before, and far more thoughtfully and eloquently (and most likely in some kick-ass blog!), but I'm saying it now--in this one!

Have a lovely day, in both of your parallel worlds!
