Aloha Friday – Week 19

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing heavy or too thought-provoking.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What’s one of your favorite things about blogging?

For me, it’s the feeling that I’m not alone in my crazy experiences. Whenever I post something that I think is totally off-the-wall, it never fails that someone else is going through the exact same thing. It puts a little sanity into my daily life.

    What do I enjoy about blogging? Having fun with friends online from home, learning new things every day, and finding out what’s really going on around the world. I can travel the world from this chair.

    Reading stories from people all over the world, meeting other moms and blogging, I think is the new way of destressing. :-)

    ohhh, how i love … releasing my pent up emotions while blogging. everything i wanted to say, uninterrupted and, for the most part, unedited. it is the most honest side of me exposed to no one in particular and it feels great.

    alice’s last blog post..Back to who I was.

  7. Charlotte (Charmed Life) says:

    … reading about differences and similarities between other people’s lives and mine.

    it feels good to know that i’m not the only one feeling the way I way, doing what I do, thinking the way I think, …and there are those who are completely, if not slightly, opposite.

    Charlotte (Charmed Life)’s last blog post..Valentine’s Day Boycott

  8. Jacki says:

    I love being able to stretch my creative writing skills and being able to “meet” people whom I would never have been able to “meet” in real life.

  10. Write From Karen says:

    I’m going to have to echo everyone else’s answers – the amazing people and stories. I’m going to have to devote an entire day sometime to just browsing and reading – there is so much out there!

    I also really enjoy compiling my thoughts and stuffing them into a concise post. It really makes me appreciate my life that much more. Oh, and the technical stuff – LOVE that. (I’m such a geek).

  11. Cathi says:

    For me blogging is a fun way to keep a journal and to meet new people. I have met people from all over the world and it’s delightful. My Valentine exchange partner lives in Dubai! It doesn’t get any better than that.

    I agree with Janet. I’m terrible at expressing myself when talking, but I do love the writing part. My blog allows me to work on this.

    Like many others, I enjoy blogging because of the people I “meet”. I love meeting others with similar views or lifestyles, and found a great network of support through blogging. And as a SAHM, I enjoy hopping on for a few minutes to vent w/ other parents! ;)

  24. Karen MEG says:

    I am amazed by the blogging community and the wealth of wonderful writers out there! But most of all it’s the writing for me, it’s why I started my blog, to capture moments of my life that will I may forget as my kids get older.
    great question!

    A broadened perspective through shared experiences and ideas and beliefs. By seeing life through each others eyes it take of blinders and limits. It opens up the opportunity for community and it extinguishes ignorance. I have met so many wonderful people with hearts that are so beautiful!

  28. Tiffany says:

    That is a tough question! There are so many things that I like about blogging. I think one of the best things is being able to keep up with friends and make new friends. I also like that I can look back over my year and see what I have done or thought about. I have never been good at keeping a journal, but there is something inspiring when someone else is reading.

    By the way, I left something for you at my site. Check it out when you get a chance.

    Tiffany’s last blog post..I got an Award!
