Read On, Readers

1166435_open_and_read

Writing is oftentimes a solitary – even lonely – activity. Hours are spent in front of an impersonal computer tap-tap-tapping away thoughts and ideas. Conversions exist only in one’s head. And raw emotions manifested on the page are met with silence.

But the writers’ world is also one of remarkable connection, support, and camaraderie. Since I began blogging a little over a year ago (oops – I kind of let that milestone quietly slip by!), I have been awed and amazed by the helpful and supportive feedback of relative strangers – virtual friends with whom I have never shared a meal, exchanged a handshake, or locked eyes. Yet these people have touched me with their expressive words, their relatable stories, their unabashed honesty, and their willingness to take the time to give their advice and feedback, to call and email, in spite of the fact that they have nothing to gain from it.

This, my friends, is what community is all about.

So in the interest of community, I am sharing my favorite posts and articles from the week. Read on, readers, read on.

What have you been reading – blogs, articles, books, otherwise – that has touched you lately?
