“Keep Blogging”

The past twenty four hours have been rewarding and humbling. Over these hours it was my privilege to talk with a person via Email helping them think of ways to engage a family member diagnosed in the past 48 hours or so with a high level prostate cancer. As the shock turned to seeking information, the person went to the internet to find assistance. They came across my own blog and honest sharing about my journey with prostate cancer. They found it useful and I was blessed to guide them in this unexpected place in their lives.

When writing a blog, one always wonders “who cares?” It might feel like you are writing just for yourself. And realistically for the most part, we probably are. Most people probably skip over them when posted or shared in places like Facebook or Twitter or the blog is simply “not their cup of tea.” But what I discovered in this exchange is that if my blogging helps just one person out of 6 billion on the planet, it was well worth it.

The lesson for me and I hope for you is keep blogging. It may be that neither you nor I will ever get recognized for anything we write. Maybe we will get a “hit” now and again. But if your words of encouragement, guidance, experience or insight help one…it has been worth the time and effort.

Blessings to all bloggers. Keep at it because one may never know the impact your experiences might have in another’s life. Grace and peace.

My Blogs of a Former Place

I took up blogging some time ago.  I didn’t know at the time, but there was a personal web page in my future.  And, here it is.

I feel a bit of a loss, however, because on that former site I did pour out things important to me.  Over a number of blogs I spilled ink sharing about personal mission, goal setting, character development and one of the most important issues to me, prostate cancer.  I am a survivor of that disease.  Through my “Living Well” blog, I shared frankly about my cancer, the surgery, the decisions a man and wife must make, and the aftermath of the physical issues that linger on and on once a prostatectomy is performed.  So, I feel a sense of loss because I poured out my heart and emotions there.

I hope you will take a short trip to my former blog site, “Living Well.” You can find the link on my “Recommended Sites,” but you can also click here:  www.dlneidert.wordpress.com  Either method will get you to the place that houses a part of me.

So welcome here….but go there, too.  As I always close, I close today….blessings, grace and peace.
