|This is my real-world "community" - family and close friends.|
December 7 – Community Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011? (Author: Cali Harris)
I have been amazed of the online blog community. Even though I'm new to the scene, I feel very welcomed and embraced. I love the respect bloggers give to each other. I've never considered myself a writer, and honestly didn't see my blog as a place to write when I first started it... but now 3 months later, I've really grown to love writing. I think of things to put on paper (or, whatever the computer version of paper is) constantly. Even more than that, I actually want to share my writing with people. I love the pride that comes when someone compliments something I've created.
Moving into 2011, I hope blogging helps motivate me to continue finding things I enjoy doing. I want to scrapbook more. I want to take more pictures. I want to start my own company... 4 months ago, I just wanted to get home by 5 to watch last night's TV shows. I'm looking forward to moving into a tighter group of bloggers, or a group of writers... or just a group of individuals pursuing something better.
