The blog that I ended up focusing on was written by a new co-worker who I've only known for about two months. Her blog (www.bethanyjoybrown.blogspot.com) focuses on self-perception, body image, and being confident in yourself. I read a few of her posts and I loved the insights she had to share. She also brought in outside sources, such as Instagram, quotes, and other blogs, to add to her message. I glanced through some of these as well, commenting on the things that stood out to me.
Through this process I learned a few things:
- I really need to take the time to read blog posts shared on Facebook. I really enjoyed what I read and I loved getting to know this co-worker better.
- In reading these blog posts I was able to connect with another person in a new way. We possess shared experiences that I was only able to learn about through this co-worker's willingness to share her thoughts and my willingness to read.
- There are a wide variety of resources and multiple ways to connect with other people on topics you may struggle with if you're willing to take the time to look.
I really enjoyed reading these blog posts and I plan on continuing to take time to read the posts shared by others and to participate in the community of writers found on blogs.
