We write online for a number of reasons. Some of us write for money or for recognition, or to share our expertise, or discuss books, movies, recipes and myriad of other reasons.
However over the time, our reasons for writing evolves into something else and those reasons are friendship, empathy and genuine concern for those who become our friends, regardless of their geographical location.
Isn’t this just great how people from all corners of the world come together to offer us support, encouragement and advice whenever we post our troubles here?
Isn’t it just great how people from all walks of life and social circles come together to offer us hope, solace and condolence when we tell them about a loss that we may have suffered?
Isn’t it marvelous how people of all skin colors and types wish us success and send warm wishes our way when we tell them about our new job, or upcoming interview or school exam or near birth of a baby?
isn’t it just great when people offer us congrats when our baby is born or we achieve a goal or we are just happy?
Are we doing this all for money? Maybe in the beginning but now I would like to think this is because we have come to know some of the people we regularly respond to and because we genuinely care or because their stories touch our hearts and because we can empathize and sympathize and because we know that joy is doubled when shared and sorrow is diminished when someone cares.
