In response to Liz’s challenge.
Blogging makes me think. It makes me dream too. It brings back Elpis (Hope). She gets lost at times, the poor winged fate.
Each time I come into this world, I feel like stepping into a dream. It’s not always a beautiful dream, because at times it reveals pain, cruel realities and horrors I don’t even dare to mention. And I cannot close my eyes. For if I do, I will not be able to see the beauty, the will, the truth, the grief, the willing to share, the power to give, the power to connect, the wisdom, the purity of a prayer, the love for a country you miss, the talent, twin souls…
I come back to this world each day. I am a part of it. I need it: it fills me up with the power to go on. I am not sad when I come here. I don’t feel lonely any longer. I feel surrounded be people who share the same dreams, long for the same passions, fight for similar ideals.
I am in the middle, like a dreamcatcher catching dreams and setting them free. I take what I find online and bring it into the real world, very much as I take the dreams from a book to bring value to my own existence: I learn. And then… I’m willing to teach everyone else what I know. Because, in the end, this is what everything is all about: sharing. And there’s not enough time to enumerate all the beautiful dreams I “catch” each day.
Why do we blog? To share. Spare me the “to make money” cliché.
Some bloggers share and make money, yes. But they do share: their knowledge, their skills, their souls. And we don’t need to judge. We don’t need to point a finger. We need to learn. Take the best out of a dream and release this goodness into our lives, to fill those little empty spaces that need to be filled.
From a John Chow we learn determination. We don’t need to agree with his ways. But we need to accept them, as a part of this world. Learn and move on.
From bloggers who speak too loud we learn about passion. Take this value. Move on.
From those who copy our work (texts, images, ideas) we learn that there are people who really need our skills. I take it as flattery. I don’t mind.
Because this is why I am here: to give my soul. To inspire. To change the way we interact, to make people understand that we don’t need to fight against each other to “win.”
We win if we compete ethically.
We win if we respect each other.
The moment we learn to respect our competitors is the moment we win more: the respect and the trust of our clients.
And I do more: I help my competitors. I want to see them getting better and better. I’ll get a “thank you” in the end. And that’s enough.
When I blog I truly feel like a dreamcatcher in the middle of a sea of dreams. Each goes through my net and nightmares get caught, while all the other dreams go through filtered. Purified.
Online dreams a like feathers: light and soft. And they wait patiently for me to discover them. So I travel through this world of dreams, filtering all I can find, and really making the best out of the Web.
