What Exactly is a Blog?

I just looked on Wikipedia to see what a blog is. You would think I would know this little tidbit of information, since I'm writing one. But I'm not 100% sure that I do. Without Adam's help, I would honestly have no clue how to do this. Here's a small part of what I found out about a blog:

A majority (of blogs) are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via GUI widgets on the blogs, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service.

Although I have no idea what a GUI widget is, I do understand the main point of this explanation. Blogs can be interactive.

Many of you have privately shared with me your struggles, opinions, experiences, and fears. I truly appreciate this, and I know that it isn't easy. Truth be told, this type of feedback has helped me to feel validated and more understood, while dealing with our family issues. It is also good to know that when I share, it has the potential to help others who may be struggling. That Us Too realization can be very powerful and purposeful.

So I guess my point is, if you are comfortable, please feel free to comment, share, and add to Us Too. Have you ever heard the saying: A problem shared is a problem halved?  Yeah, me neither, but there does seem to be a lot of sense to it.

Who knows, maybe your unique story, a choice or a decision that you made, or your positive words can make all the difference in someone else's life.

Thank you.

Us Too
