The Strange World of Blogging

Online connections are very interesting.  I may have mentioned that I met a blog reader in person the other day -- without even having a police escort -- violating all kinds of internet safety issues.  But it is very interesting, I think, to meet someone that you have only known online.

I've done this a few times -- met up with someone who knew me from my blog and I think that there have been a few who have been disappointed.  They have not liked me as much as they thought they would because on the day that they met me I wasn't as perky or fun or energetic -- or whatever -- as I appear to be in my blog.

Others I've met have been pleasantly surprised that I'm not quite as dogmatic or annoying as I appear.

Regardless, meeting people through after months or years of an online connection, can be quite surprising.

Miscommunicating like I did  in my last post bothers me.  Typically these things happen because I always write too quickly and don't proofread carefully.    Unfortunately I know myself pretty well and I know that when I am representing only myself, I get careless about communicating correctly.

Because of my time constraints, my only option is to stop blogging... and I'm not quite ready for that.

PLEASE don't stop blogging. Please?

I certainly hope that you are not ready to stop blogging, because I am not ready to see you stop blogging.

Oh, please don't stop blogging! I enjoy a good thought provoking post. I also appreciate that you live out your faith, and put your mercy, and grace, into action. I also appreciate that it is possible to have dialogue with you, to get us all to dig deeper within. You rock, girl!

Oh, I won't stop blogging. I can't.
