The Things I know: the blogosphere edition...

Ok so I'm trying this "Things I Know" link up thingy phenomenon, created by Yay For Home. I hope I do this right....

  • I knew there was this amazing thing I call the "Bloggers World", but I didn't realise until now, what an awesome community it is! Everyone is so welcoming, non-judgemental and supportive. Basically the ideal utopic society we should have IRL (that's 'In Real Life', in case you're not a full web-head).
  • Reading through a lot of blogs fills your head with so much information that you would never have gotten a hold of in a normal hour out in the 'real world'. Information that leads to more understanding of the human condition and how every person is beyond special and important.
  • I am officially addicted to blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Blogging is extremely cathartic.
  • My husband thinks I've chosen Mr Toshiba Laptop as my snuggling companion, since I spend more time with it in the evenings than I do with him at the moment .. whoops!
Ok so it's a bit short and sweet. But I am a virgin at this *insert naughty winky face*

ps: thank you Blogosphere, you rock!!!!

Just found you via Shae;s linky. I agree with you- I think blogging is kind of like my therapy. It's very good for the soul.

Kristie said...

Found you at Shae's :)

Welcome to Things I Know. I agree SO much with the one hour thing too!

Looking forward to checking out your blog.

You are so not virginal!!! ha!

I reckon Mr Toshiba sounds like a lovely way to connect and learning about your experiences makes me realise that no matter what we, collectively are going through there is always hope and love.

I think I may be insane by now, if not for the blogging community.

SaraMG said...

One of the lovely ladies I follow pointed out in her introduction that blogging is like therapy just much cheaper...
But also, it's a part of life where people really let their real self shine, without feeling the need to keep up appearances :)

Lovely meeting you Yeran :)

Grace said...

Yay for all of the above!

I love that no matter what you're going through you're never alone in the blogosphere. There's always support and care and ideas. Love it!

I am new to blogging and the blogosphere is all kinds of cool. Blogging is my therapy, & much more satisfying.
My hubby is jealous of Mr. Mac, I spend way too much time with him. :)

Am returning to blogging after a while away so feeling my way back around the community :)

Blogging has always been therapeutic for me and I think it will be the same this time around :)

It is so addictive and lovely to welcome you to the blogosphere.
The URL friends do become IRL friends - some who just live too far away but we meet up every day.
I don't feel so isolated with the friends in my computer with me.
