[Editor’s Note: This is but the first in what will apparently be a plethora of guest posts on this here weblog. Today’s guest is Polysyllabic Profundities (WP just tried to correct that to profanities. It knows you so well). If you just successfully pronounced that without your tongue ending up in a fucking knot, then you are a cunning linguist *insert juvenile chuckle here*. Please remember to check out her blog once you’ve finished reading here. You won’t be sorry you did.]
I’d never thought of doing a guest post before, but Twindaddy has made the idea thrive in the forefront of my convoluted brain. Ah, the power of the armor!
Being a member of the blogging community has opened a whole new world for me. It has given me the freedom to share my thoughts and creativity and it has drawn me into a world of like-minded people. It has introduced me to writers who truly inspire me with their talent and humor and it has allowed me to start some new friendships throughout the blogosphere.
I find something compelling in all of the blogs I follow and each day I am presented with genuine emotion, poetry, quick wit and sarcasm with a few well placed expletives for good measure. But more importantly, the underlying string that weaves me into the web of these people is the passion they have for what they write and how they express that passion. Everyone has a unique way of presenting their thoughts and I find myself wishing at times that my writing had the flexibility and raw humor that they convey on a daily basis. Although my writing style is quite different from the growing list of my favorite blogs, I, like them, find my own way to express what is going through my head at the time. It may be poetic, it may be a rant or it may be wildly descriptive, but in each of those ways I am able to connect with people who share my thoughts.
Bloggers share a piece of themselves every time they hit that ‘publish’ button. They let people into their lives and their minds and sometimes they bare their souls. They allow people to delve into the recess of their heart or they invite them behind that warped door into their sense of humor. It is somewhat humbling having these same bloggers follow my journey and leave inspiring and thought-provoking comments that fuel my desire to continue.
I have truly come to embrace these people and I feel comfortable in this space. It is a community of support, not only in writing, but in our lives as well. And inviting other people into a truly personal space to have them share their words in your forum is a great example of showing that support. Thanks Daddy! You are a truly gifted writer, and under that hard outer shell of armor you really are a sweet guy.
