How do you serve your community?

What is your bliss? Your mission? Your vision?

What perspectives do you hold on life?

With whom do you share this?

Who are you listening to? Who is listening to you?

Why we Blog

Owl in Flight

As if it isn’t enough: the random joke email , chain letters, Evites, Mob hits, pokes, Meetups, etc.

We blog to share, and we share because we care. We want to be heard, to be found, bought from, sold to, “friended”, collaborated with, retweeted and even married.

The above photo comes from a blog whose raison d’être is self entitled, “Things You Would Know if we Didn’t Blog Incessantly.”

So why do you blog?
