This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for another week of living. We give thanks for making it through and for being able to celebrate this fact. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So take a moment and be proud of the fact that you’re here and you’ve made it to another Friday. Not only you, but your family and friends as well. So, to that end, are you alive this Friday? Have you given thanks for this?
Good, now let’s dance.
When I first started this blog, I never imagined how many other people do the same thing and have been doing it for years. Yes, I had absolutely seen the bigger blogs that offer advice, communicate information or shape lifestyles, but hadn’t spent that much time understanding the number of normal folks that frequently communicate on what is going on in their lives. The more time I have spent on WordPress.com reading these blogs from ordinary people, the more I have been impressed and inspired. I have often wondered why everyone does their blogs on a regular basis. What is their motivation? It is a lot of work, there is no money in it and getting famous by writing a blog is like getting rich by winning the lottery–the odds are not good. For me, I have enjoyed blogging for the creative aspect it provides and for it making me appreciate what’s real and great in my life. I also like it for the chance to say ‘hello’ to so many people I would never have had the opportunity to meet and share a little about my life. So to all the people who visit us here at Acorns On Glen each week, we would just like to say ‘hello’. To that end, our little ‘Hello’ song this week is just perfect. So take a listen, celebrate life and shake it in celebration. You deserve it. When did you start to blog and why do you like to do it (or not)?
