A world community can exist only with world communication, which means something more than extensive short-wave facilities scattered about the globe. It means common understanding, a common tradition, common ideas, and common ideals.
Robert M. Hutchins (American Educator)
Things like the Ultimate Blog Challenge help to make that more of a possibility, in my opinion. I have communicated with people all across the US, Canada, Europe (quite a number from Great Britain) , Asia, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and a few more places.It astounds me that sometimes the only thing that hampers this ongoing communication are the time zone differences.
Taking this on for the month of April, I took this as a challenge to see if (1) I could do it (2) did I have enough content in me that people wanted to read (3) in doing it, would I enjoy it and (4) who else is out there, and what are they writing about and why.
To answer that:1) Yes, I could and I did 2) Yes, I did first part; not sure about the second still 3) Oh Yes I DID! 4) A lot of amazing people; some truly great content
So, I would like to thank, in NO particular number, the people that I have a great respect for, and I hope they will keep writing so I can keep reading: Tori, Justice, Heather, Kimberly, Jessica, Gillian, Krissy, Tracey, Lynn, Lisa, Janine, Tom, Gabi, Lynn, Nancy, Paisley Moon, Ali, Meg, Diana, and of course, Michele and Michelle!
