Blogging personal moments

One of the things I find most interesting about bloggers is their willingness to share very personal feelings. I came across two examples of this last week.

My friend Chuck wrote about his daughter who was left paralyzed from an auto accident seven years ago. He links to her blog post which is very moving (and inspirational).

Equally touching was Everett Mobley’s memories of his mother who died last week following a long battle with cancer.

They both felt moved to share very personal thoughts and feelings and their blogs offered a means for doing so. I’ve seen this time and time again.

I’m not sure what the point of this post is. Perhaps that there’s something about the blog format that almost requires an openess and honesty.
