This photo was taken with my Nikon D50 in April 2008 while in Phoenix Arizona.
Many different blogs are read on this PC: Political blogs, artsy blogs, cake blogs, memoirs, poems, and photography blogs. So many have helped me with my own creative growth and as I look back over the past two years of this wildstorm blog, I have noticed a gradual shift in how and what I write. The style of photography remains pretty much the same.
What makes blogging so enjoyable is the connections made through reading other online journals. Informative, inspirational, entertaining, educational. It’s getting to know the writer through what they publish that intrigues me so. I’ve followed and been followed by many over the past ten years. Some I have known over the course of that time while others have only recently become part of my daily blog reads. Unfortunately there are many who kept journals for a period of time that became blog friends and are now gone.
People come and go in online communities. People leave for a variety of reasons. But in a community a blogger needs to feel valued. They need to know that they are wanted as a member and they need to know that they have been noticed by other members. I no longer formally belong to a blog community but this blog on WordPress offers connections to others who have been quite faithful at reading me for the past 2 years. And thank you.
