I gave a presentation on blogging basics to my Toastmasters group tonight. Our club focuses on Powerpoint presentations, so I put together a short deck, about 8 slides, and taught my audience to blog.
I talked about what a blog is, my history with blogging, why they might want to blog, how to set one up, and things to think about.
It was fun, not only because they seemed to enjoy it, but because it reminded me of how much I love this and, most especially, you.
The audience said they could feel my enthusiasm. They were right – I have deep love for the topic. I’ve made some of my best friends through blogging, had some of my best adventures, and have learned a lot about myself along the way.
I don’t mean to sound too dramatic, but blogging has made me a better person. I’m more compassionate. I pay attention better. I pause more often before I judge, and it is from experiencing the world through the words of other bloggers.
Thanks for coming along on this ride with me. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know.
