The year in finishing and so my challenge to post everyday. I can’t say i did post everyday but between written posts and photo challenges i have more than 300 so far. Now it’s time to look back and try to understand what happened in my life and how did this blog followed my adventures during 2011. I don’t know what else can come out of this but it will be the first time i read proof of my footsteps and i can even reevaluate some issues. For the first time i can exchange things that are mine with my friends here. Friends i made through my stories and my steps. People that could not care less about my financial situation or about my status in the community or my physical appearance. People that gave me a lot of support in times of trouble. Yes! With nothing to expect in return these friends did cheer and gave advice. How much more unconditional can it be? So i learned a lot this year and this challenge showed me many great people and great moments. I know it already sounds too good and i didn’t even say a word about the amazing stories i read everyday from great writers and even better the possibility to comment and interact with these great writers. Many lessons for life for those who are interested in reading it. Again unconditional. I’m not the everyday optimist as most here already know but i can see a lot of goodness in here and i hope i can be part of it for a long time. So i would like to thank all my friend and assure they’ll always find avid eyes here waiting for the next posts and the next days and the next adventures. Let’s choose well the challenges of next year and finish the challenges of this one joyfully. Great holidays to you all!!! (No…this is not the last post of the year…but it will be the only one in this subject) 🙂
I don’t run. I’m too fat to run but i can understand some of the things about it. I was thinking about writing a blog daily for a year and how close it is to a marathon. To write a short story one need a lot of passion and some knowledge about writing. To write a novel one must have a lot of practice and many tools at his/her hand. So short story is like a quarter mile and a novel is like a Marathon. So what is a blog in the running world? Probably has to do with pilgrimage. Blogging can be very long. Even longer than a novel or two. The difference is that as in a pilgrimage bloggers have feedback and experience exchanges. Bloggers also can choose how much do they want to walk and they can do it for many short periods. Novelists in other hand are lonely and focused on the finish line. The last line of the novel. Bloggers are writing and enjoying the process more than the result. There’s nothing better in a journey than being able to experience and exchange the more we can so blogging may not have a book or two as a result but it’s surely the best way to travel.
