Stories From The Blogopshere
~the personal stories of how blogs have touched peoples' lives~ .......................................................................Relax..take a story-break and read a Blogger Story!
Curious about the back-story behind Blogger Stories? Yvonne DiVita, Lip-sticking, recently interviewed me, and in her usual savvy style, brings more to the picture than one might anticipate.
I wanted to do this because I think stories are the fabric of our lives; quilted, silken, burlaped, or braided, stories give us warmth and hope, they provide memory and reflection, and they help each one of us weave a blanket of many colors and textures - that is uniquely our own.
Yvonne so gets what it's all about. As soon as her hectic life slows down she's promised to tell her story on Blogger Stories.
Thank you Yvonne for your generosity in helping a new blog find its way into the blogosphere. Bloggers are the friendliest people!
Welcome to Blogger Stories - a slightly different kind of blog. For me the heart of the blogosphere is two-fold. It is the people behind millions of posts created every day. It is also the people who read those posts.
Along the way of writing and reading blogs something interesting often happens. Lives are touched. Sometimes lives are changed. The influence of blogs can be major .. a new career, a support system, a friendship. Or minor .. an idea, a giggle, a recipe.
Those influences .. great and small .. make up the stories that are the soul of the blogoshere. I wanted to create a space to tell those stories. To capture how a funny named technology called "a blog" has made a difference.
Blogger Stories is not really "my blog*" but the yours, mine and ours. Call it our gift to the blogoshere.
So ... what's your story? Drop me an email at [bloggerstories at yahoo dot com] with:

if your story is personal or business related
your bloggy story please limit to 500 words or less
