Liz Strauss at Successful Blog has asked her readers to think about community, connectedness, being linked together, synchronicity, serendipity and oneness.
And then she gave us this challenge.
Put our thoughts into a sentence or phrase of exactly 25 words, illustrating how we each believe bloggers are connected.
Here are my 25 words.
A blogger’s words may grow icy with frost;
a published presence, subscriptions lost.
But wireless pathways and creative minds,
share colourful comments that forever bind.
I had no idea what was going to bounce off the keyboard when I started this.
But, while playing with the words and the rhymes an idea started to take shape. This poem/meme has given voice to a not so frosty post over at The Writer’s Manifesto Blog, entitled “Do You Really Care About Your RSS Feed”.
In this rant of a post Monika says, “Personal interaction is worth so much more than awe-inspiring RSS feed subscription numbers.”
In her comment section I shared that, “I recently unsubscribed from one blog because the blogger rarely replied to comments. You know what that’s like? Going to a party where all the guests sit around in the living room chatting, eating snacks, waiting for the host or hostess who never shows up.”
I enjoy replying to comments and reading the playful and sarcastic banter in the comments section on other blogs. I get excited when my subscriber count goes up too.
But personally, I get greater satisfaction from connecting with readers and other bloggers through our comments. Blogging would be pretty boring without that.
My next post has yet to be given a title. It is a submission to the Life Balance Group Writing Project and if you want to participate there is still time. The deadline is October 26th.

And, hi to all you regular readers. I have appreciated your comments and support over the past few months.
A big thanks to Barbara at Blogging Without A Blog for choosing Loving Pulse as New Blog of the Week (NBOTW). I am, as the title of this post suggests, “Over The Moon”.
When I started posting in June, Barbara was the first to leave a comment and she has continued to visit and comment since then.
I had no idea how much time was involved when I first started this practice but thankfully, I have learned a lot from Blogging Without A Blog. Barbara shares helpful tips and information to make blogging easier for all of us. If you are a new blogger, spend some time reading through her archives.
I have connected with a huge number of other bloggers who read and comment on Barbara’s blog, and learned from many of them too.
At Loving Pulse I write about what moves me. Like the moon, we all have a dark side and a sunny side. I explore this through my own experience with the hopes of inspiring readers to do the same for themselves.
My most recent article entitled Stepping Out Of These Old Shoes is about facing, or not facing changes in life.
My upcoming article to be posted this Friday is entitled Free Spirit My Ass!
Feel free to visit my Favourite Posts page where I have showcased some of my favourites.
I will sign off now with a quote from Les Brown.
“Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars.”
