I started garden blogging this fall, then added a Christian blog not really knowing who I was addressing, whether it was myself or others. I do not consider myself a writer, but love to talk, and I think that this is a way of communicating with others. Through my writing, and seeing the personalities of others expressed through their blogs, I have realized that, as with people "in the flesh" we get to know a few well, and develop a larger group of acquaintances.
The big opportunity we have in blogging is getting to know people who live very far away from us. We all have differences in things we believe and value, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy something about each other. It doesn't mean we can't determine to be at peace with each other.
The last few days I have been more intentional in visiting blogs from other countries who participate in the "memes" I do. I sometimes have trouble keeping up with everything, but we'll see what happens. Anyway, the reason for this post was to say why I put up the translation widget I discovered on someone's blog.
(This has been my usual signature for my other blog.)
