Blog reading has become a part of my routine.
I may not always leave a comment when I drop by your space but when I don’t see your blog in my Reader for a few weeks or months, I do wonder where you went.
Are you on vacation? Busy with work and family? Just trying to juggle life and have no time for your blog?
Did you lose your muse or did you decide that blogging isn’t really for you anymore?
And when a blogger has shared their stories about suffering from or dealing with an illness, I hope against hope that the worst has not happened.
It’s mind boggling that we can connect with each other regularly here on WP but if something were to happen to us, we would never really know because our posts would simply just …stop. Blogging can make the world a smaller place but still keep us worlds apart.
Months ago, a blogger who loved sharing original poetry and nominating others for “awards” just faded away from my WP Reader and strangely enough, a few days after I noticed it, a fellow blogger shared that he had passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly. Even though I had only exchanged a few communications with him, it still floored me.
It made me think about how people we have never met can become a part of your daily (reading) lives.
Am I alone in this thinking? Have these thoughts ever crossed your mind?
