I’ve learned a bit, this weekend.

I will tell you this much: I am the worst blogger; I’m sure of it.

I don’t do buttons or Google forms or Mr. Linky (unless I’m signing up for a challenge). I haven’t collaborated with other bloggers to create my own event, nor have I come up with my own contribution to the bloggosphere like Deb’s Booking Through Thursday or Amy’s Faith ‘n’ Fiction Round Table.

But I will also tell you this: I am a great reader and at least a passable writer. I’ve been scoping out the web on my trip through Bloggiesta, this weekend, and lo and behold, I have, in fact, come across more than a few other bloggers who listed reading and writing and creating blogs to the owner’s liking as goals. While I did focus on a few house keeping tasks, I think I came to the understanding, over the course of the event, that what I need to keep my blog up and running to the best of its ability, is to make it something I love doing.

I’m overwhelmed by the buzzers and buttons and spreadsheets and such. Some folks love doing “all that jazz'”. I’m certainly no dinosaur but it’s just not why I came here to blog, I suppose.

And now you get to find out why there is a giant Woody and Buzz picture on top of this post:

It doesn’t matter a darn bit.

Whether you’re a well-worn, pull-string cowboy or a fancy schmancy, bells and whistles space ranger, we’re still just here for each other. And for ourselves. Ok, mostly ourselves.

Every day, bloggers come together to share and be shared with. Be they button hounds or word lovers, the internet is there and so are the thousands upon thousands of subjects that people blog about. Each blog reflects each blogger.

Yes, that’s nice, you say, but we already knew that. Well, I guess I didn’t. Not really. I did at first but then, when I started blogging, I got a bit carried away and thought I should have bells and bobs and doodads and things. Sure, a lot of it is useful and maybe I’ll get there, some day, but for now, I’ll settle for writing my heart out, down on the range and I’ll leave the space cowboy stuff to infinity and beyond.

And now a message from our sponsors:

 

Bloggiesta Pinata
Also, this is P.E.D.R.O.’s (Plan.  Edit.  Develop.  Review.  Organize.) little sister. She needs a name and Natasha is brainstorming over at Maw Books Blog. My personal contribution would be L.I.N.D.A. (Learn. Inspire. Network. Delegate. Appreciate.) who is into social networking and community building. Also, her name means “cute” in Spanish. What’s not to love?

    Oh, I love “LINDA” ! love it love it!

    ( Although I have a slight quibble with “delegate” since I’m a one-woman shop.) 🙂

      Thanks! Haha I know. I’m a bit of a line wolf myself but I know a lot of people who set up the mega events and challenges who could probably fog some delegation collaboration…and I needed a D. ;0)

    I love this post! I think everyone’s blog should be a reflection of who they are and what they love….and it doesn’t matter if it’s the snazziest, jazziest high tech bells and whistles or just a few humble words. It’s about connecting with others, sharing ideas and interests, and hopefully, having fun along the way. If it’s not fun, what’s the point? I think you are right on in your point of view! 🙂

      Thanks! I know it sort of seems brainless when written out and I honestly never do anything untrue to myself but it was a good thing to come upon NOT needed to fit a certain ideal. :0)
