Blogging is an interesting thing. For me, it’s like writing a journal. I chat and ramble and engage in interesting conversations with you guys but because everything is online, while it is real, it doesn’t feel real. Do you get me? I mean I share my stories, I ask for advice but everything is in world wide web!! It isn’t tangible. I do not meet people!!Until……..
Well, a couple of weeks ago I met two teachers who said,
Oh! When I heard your name and saw your face, I knew I was reading your blog!
How cool! How embarrassing!!
The things I say here!! The things you guys actually have to read and then to meet teachers who have actually read my blog and like the stuff I write? It’s so weird!!
But this isn’t the first time this has happened. Last year I went for lunch with some friends in Newcastle and one of the people there said,
I read your blog as I was preparing for my pre-sessional interview!! Your tips were helpful.
So, you don’t really understand the “power”, “dynamic” of blogging until you have that face to face interaction I guess or maybe I don’t!
How does that make me feel?
Well, I guess I feel strange and happy at the same time. Happy that I can help someone, strange cause, boy oh boy, do I ramble!! I guess bigger bloggers are used to it, but I am not. That’s why I am writing about it today. Does meeting someone who has read what I say, change the way I blog? Nope!! Still gonna ramble!!!
So what about you guys? Have you met any of the teachers who read your blogs? How does that make you feel?
Short and sweet today. I have to write 15 posts this month!
Don’t think that’s gonna happen, but I will try!!
Till next time….
