“Blogging is a beautiful skill to express your feelings & emotions to the right people out there.”
I agree that blogging is a way to express your feelings and emotions, and that there is a skill to writing, but as to whether I would describe it as beautiful, I’m not sure.
There are some fabulous bloggers out there who write some fantastic posts, some of which contain the most beautiful poetry or photography.
To me, the skill of a writer is to put you in the moment, make you become part of the story, or being able to touch whatever is described.
As a blogger, we cannot say who conforms to being one of ‘the right people’. Admittedly this could be seen as a play on words, but who are we to say that our readers are ‘the right people’ or not? We are all individuals with our own set of opinions, interpretation and tastes. No-one can appeal to everyone all the time, and that is what make us unique.
I am glad that people read my blog and add comments to my writings though. I appreciate them taking the time to put forward their thoughts and point of view, even if it differs from my own. It is good to see another perspective on something we have written that we may not even have considered. It gives us food for thought and dare I say, perhaps broaden our outlook?
