I is for the Indispensible Internet (#atozchallenge)

What would the blogging world be without the Internet? Being new to this world, I am constantly amazed by the opportunities that blogging and the internet open up. The potential to reach thousands of people with a simple hit of the publish key is full of possibility.

Getting a blog site up and running has been one exciting learning curve. So many options, so many things to consider.   So much still to explore.  I am relishing the challenge of establishing  a community and building a following.

Sharing this space with professional and published writers is a heady experience – there is much talent out there.  I am honing my craft, producing pieces of work and putting my creative talents out there.

The social side to blogging – becoming involved in fellow bloggers’ lives and getting to know them through their posts – is wonderfully engaging.  My WordPress world has become an indispensible part of the day, whether I am posting or reading.

This the Internet:

Indispensible Networking Tool Essential to Releasing New and Entertaining Topics

And I am now a blogger!

About the curtain raiserhttp://raisingthecurtain.netI have spent my life in offices. For now I am putting that behind me and preparing for the second act. Middle age didn't come with acceptable signposts so I am making my own through my writing. A journey shared is more fun than going it solo.

  1. It is indispensable, hard to imagine a world without it. Yet books got written, traditions were not lost, all those millennia without it… I think of it as an iteration on the printing press: a way to talk to many more people than ever before? Blogging is great! Please continue 🙂

  2. Almost the first thing I learned about blogging is how much it is not just about writing random thoughts that entertain me. Its a social machine and a work of art, plus a platform for personal opinion all in one. Great post

  3. The social aspect of blogging was a definite unexpected bonus for me. The Internet truly is indespensable. (Was just wondering how I would have researched my A to Z posts without it and then realised that I wouldn’t be producing any!)

  4. I’m not so sure the Internet is all that indispensable. I lived without it for years, about 53 actually. Yes I do so enjoy blogging, can’t stand Facebook, but to tell the truth, when my computer rolled over and died a little while ago it was a relief. Suddenly I got to all the things I’d been meaning to get to but never had the time. No, the Internet is most definitely not indispensable, just desirable.
    Of course if the Internet really did go down world wide say for three weeks, there would be chaos. No food, no fuel, no banking, no communications, well there would be a very serious world problem. There’d also be no taxes, I suppose there is that.
    This comment is way too long.

    • I like your lengthy comment. I understand what you are saying, I am finding more and more businesses and government departartments are turning their customer/consumer/service focus to the net. It is getting to the point that if you are not on the net, ferreting out information can be almost impossible. So if we are not and the indispensible point yet, then we are getting mighty close.

I would really love to hear what you have to say. C'mon.. you know you want to!
