Six Words Friday-Point




To the uninitiated, blogging's a puzzle-
What's the point of all this? -
The putting of pen to paper,
Pouring out the details and minutiae
of everyday life to perfect strangers.
But in Blogland, strangers become friends,
willing confidants who will blindly listen,
sharing ideas, hopes, fears and dreams.
Not making too finer a point-
we do it and love it,
A place to just be ourselves,
regardless of our other worldly restraints-
and if no one really understands,
well then, it doesn't really matter,
because we do,- That's the point:)

Joining in with Adrienne for '6 Word Fridays' whose theme for this week was point.

  7. HI Amanda!
    I've only been blogging regularly for a little over a year. And it is beginning to become for me, just as you say -a group of, "willing confidants who will blindly listen."

    I'm visiting again from Six Word Fridays. :)

    1. Yes Indeed, and the things that perhaps we wouldn't tell others too:)

  9. Don't we all feel like connecting with others? Just a little bit? I guess otherwise, really, there would be no point in blogging. Great post!

  10. Oh you said that so well! Very succinctly put. Yes, it's about the connections and the sharing and, celebrating the good things too. x
