Meet Becca

One of the things that I look forward to each day is to read some of my favorite blogs.  I spend most of my day reading about technology and researching problems.  As much as I love technology, there are days that I just get saturated with it all.  I love fixing problems and researching those fixes but that is not what I would call recreational reading.  That is where the blogosphere comes in. 

I want to increase the readership on my blog, and I believe that one of the ways to do that, is to tell you about some of the other blogs that I follow.  I read Becca’s post this morning, and it resonated with me.  One of the quotes in her blog post this morning got my attention. 

Dorothea Brande writes that “If you are unwilling to write from the honest, though perhaps far from final, point of view that represents your present state, you may come to your deathbed with your contribution to the world still unmade…”

I love Becca’s blog because of the many insightful thoughts that I find there, like the one  above.  These types of thoughts make me pause and think.  It makes me wonder if I really am making a valuable contribution to this world?  Life is all about making mistakes and learning and growing from them.  As we learn and grow hopefully we are becoming better people who are more equipped to help those around us. 

One of the things that Becca mentioned in her blog is that she writes more posts than she publishes.  Becca illuminated the tendency of bloggers, to be hesitant to share some of the deeper thoughts and feelings that they might be experiencing.  We do not want to be viewed as someone who abuses the blogosphere by over sharing.  We struggle with finding the right balance when we write and I can relate to that. 

If you are a blogger, tell me about your blog in the comments below.   Do you  feel that you struggle with finding a balance with what you share on your blog?  How do you handle that?  If you have a favorite blog please tell me about them as well.

Thanks

  1. James, thank you so much for your kind words! I think we all want to make a difference in the world, to leave a positive mark on other lives. Some of us do it with writing, or music, or art, or technology!

    I’m SO happy to know that my words made a tiny little positive impression for you today 🙂 You’ve made my day immensely better by sharing that!

    I love your blog and I love who you are. You keep it real and that resonates with me more than you will ever know. Hugs to you. Thanks for writing.

  3. Isn’t Becca great? I can’t wait to meet her in person and give her a big hug.

    And what I loved about the post you mentioned is how it’s necessary to get to the heart of what we really think and feel. Of course we will need to revise and edit before we publish… but to edit while writing stifles the magic. I know because I’m guilty of doing that. A lot.
