39 Top Bloggers Quotes About Blogging

I certainly do not claim to be even an average blogger. I do what feels natural to me and I don’t think about much else. I feel that if people like what I have to say then they will listen and if not, then I am at least chronciling my life for the future generations. When I am long gone, my grandchildren’s grandchildren will still hopefully to be able to “know” who I was. I did not have that with my grandparents. They past away and left only vague memories for me and my brother. That is one of the best parts about living in this century. I can only imagine how high tech future generations will become but at least I made it into the generation that can document their life for anyone to take an interest in.

I am always wondering what other bloggers are thinking as they write their matieral. I was reading a blog and found the quotes/tips from some of the top bloggers on the internet today. I found some of their remarks very interesting and enlightening. They all are varied in their approaches but somehow they have found a following. I have added links to the Twitter accounts or blogs if you want to read more from them.

That is what I wish for – a following who is following because I am the real me off and on line.
