Yesterday I caught up with a blogger who was having a blogging dilemma, should they continue or not? I'm afraid I couldn't think of anything uplifting to say nor offer any pearls of wisdom but it did rattle my cage a little.
Why do I blog? Well I started because it seemed (from Claire/Molly's experience) to be a posititve experience and I wanted to keep my training notes in better order. After just over a year it has been exactly what I wanted; a complete year to look back on and smile/grimace at hehehe!! I post my pics and vids, not as a 'wow I'm so great' but as a reminder of where we've been and hopefully a spur to urge me on to better things.
I don't crave 'recognition' but I love to hear a word from friends/regulars who 'know' me even if only in the www sense!
Yesterday I was surprised to see my feed record showing multi visits from a UK forum, digging a little I found they were discussing a video and posting that I made last year. No problem, I put it there in the public domain, feel free to discuss. However when I read a Parelli fan deciding that giravolta is the same as one of the parelli game1 exercises I feel my fingers start to tingle and have had to resist the urge to point out this is not the case. So it is a big responsibility to be honest and true in our postings (I really do try to be) but at the end of the day I can't change the world and I have to accept that.
Ha so there, see I said it, I want to change the world...well no I'm too damned lazy; I'll stick to playing with my pones and enjoying what that brings...someone else can go change the world, good luck to them.
