What is a BLOG? According to Wikipedia a BLOG is a portmanteau from the term, Weblog, that is a discussion or information site published on the world wide web…. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
To me a BLOG is more than a “log” or journal. For me the term BLOG stands for: Beautiful, Loveable, Outgoing, and Gracious people who share their lives through stories, poems, verse and photos. They share their dreams, offer hope and encouragement, spread a little joy and often times create smiles for their readers.
Each of us wait in anticipation for the next email notifications for our favorite blogs. They are visits from friends. We know each email offers a touch of sunshine to our day, enhancing our day with a quote or bringing us beauty in a picture. Blogging is a unique community of friendships that are built on sharing the same interests and life experiences. It is also a gift from God for us, His children. God uses everything in our life to bring His children together in fellowship, worship and study.
Then there are the awards. They are nice to receive and I appreciate the kindness of my friends that nominate me. And I enjoy reading about their nominations and how they have touched so many other lives and in meeting new friends who they recommend.
