Over the past few months I have been trying to fill a void for bloggers who are no longer blogging. Whatever ever their personal reason, I thought you folks wanted to discuss more than just what hits my fancy.
BUT, the new year is bringing an evaluation of that approach and I may return to my little corner of the world. Anonymity brought in too much nasty stuff and I do not think I can be a facilitator of that in the future.
For those who want to continue, maybe you should contact the T-G about becoming a blogger. I like to support any blog with a comment or two but please understand that if I do not get involved, it is a subject that I will not lend a voice. Just as some of you see no need to respond to my silly dog/cat stories.
That said, I hope everyone within reading distance (which could be round the world) has a great, happy, productive New Year. My Chinese friends get to celebrate twice each year and that made me think. (uh oh)
Each day starts a New Year. If things are crappy today, let's make tomorrow the start of a better New Year. Not tomorrow? Aah, come on, it has to start somewhere!
I have a few goals that renew each day regarding my faith, family, business, blogging, and health but a new one is forming about becoming a "big brother" to numerous "souls" I see on Facebook who appear to be tormented, ruining their own life and in turn might be ruining many others.
Do I have counseling experience? Maybe a little but by no means a professional, but I am not sure that the first "wave" of support needs to be professional. Maybe a little to nonjudgmental family member, thus the "big brother".
No strings attached, no selling of books or "programs". Actually no physical contact at all, although I believe in the power of a hug.
In today's world there are too many people praying on others, so no physical contact, no "money" transferred, NOTHING asked of the relationship but support. It would hopefully reduce, if not eliminate the suspicion that can come from someone offering unconditional support. (Love maybe? But not LOVE love, instead, true brotherly love)
We will see.
