4 Reasons Why Blogging is a Noble Passion

4 Reasons Why Blogging is a Noble Passion

4 Reasons Why Blogging is a Noble Passion

    I initially began the blog with a 20% desire to help others, and 80% to cynically make the kind of money the A-list bloggers are making.
    – Urban Monk.net

    I stumbled upon an interesting blog, Urban Monk, several days ago. As I read the brief history of the blog, I felt harmony with the passion and motivation that the author, Albert, has for the blogging.

    I began blogging four months ago with the intention to share my success in life with others and, of course, to earn residual income from the content creation. As I reflect on this short journey, I realize that blogging is more of a noble passion than merely a tool to earn income. I’ve been in business for a while but I’ve never had a passion that kindled my heart as intensely until I began blogging. Being an engineer by education and hotelier as an entrepreneur, I have a passion for people and for enhancing human values that make life a memorable voyage.

    Here, then, are four reasons I’ve come to see blogging as a noble pursuit.

    Reason # 1: Competitors are friends.

    As a businessman, I’ve been taught to view competition as a “holy war” of business. I’ve attended training to sharpen my skills as a warrior to snatch every possible customer from the jaws of the competition. Needless to say, I’m conditioned to view competition with cynicism.

    In the world of blogging, though, I see fellow bloggers doing all they can to inspire and motivate other journeyman blogs. It was a shocking revelation at first. How can my competitor ever want to invest in my success? I can think of several names at the blink of eye — Joel Falconer, Barbara Swafford, Peter Clemens, Tina Su, Jay White, and countless others — who selflessly do all they can to ensure success of up-and-coming bloggers like me.

    Reason # 2: Blogging transcends race, gender and religious barriers.

    With the advent of the Internet, the world certainly has shrunk. I refer to the obvious power of the Internet to connect the citizens of the world to exchange products, services, and ideas. A blogger writes from his or her personal, life-enriching experiences to share knowledge that an Ivy League school can’t offer. Life is more than the knowledge that we acquire in the four walls of a college campus. With a blog, I can share my knowledge and experience with people around the world without barriers. I get visitors and comments from people of all backgrounds. I firmly believe that blogging makes our world a better place to live, one life a time.

    Reason # 3 Blogging creates emotional bond among bloggers.

    As our world has become ever-changing, our lives have become more stress-ridden with the burden of goals to achieve and income to earn to get food on the table. In this reletntless quest, we lose track of our intentions to care for others. My friend Joel sent me this message last night, to my surprise, “Hi mate, just wanted to check in with you and see if you’re all right. Haven’t seen you around the web at all for a few days.” This means the world to me. It’s food for my soul to rekindle my passion to write with clarity, so I can connect with all of those who echo Joel’s sentiment. I’m both humbled and honored to have such an emotional bond from fellow bloggers.

    Reason # 4 Blogging is an honest exchange of life-enriching ideas.

    Much of what we see in the media is a filtered version of what those media moguls want us to hear. It’s a self-professed medium of mass brainwashing. Needless to say, media always has its own interests ahead of the goodwill of the world. Media propagates stories of negativity and pessimism to hold the masses of the world hostage. Well, a Robin Hood has arrived in the form of the noble crusaders, my fellow bloggers, who now counterbalance every drive-by story with honest assessment of facts. This itself is a noble aspect of blogging, one which money cannot buy.

    Blogging proves that old ancient adage; “We aren’t human beings with spiritual experience but rather spiritual beings with human experience.” When I write from my heart, with unyielding passion and love for other human beings, I instantly connect with millions of people across the world who can share and feel same passion and love for the noble ideas that make our world a remarkable place to live.

                        Sometimes people do not need a heap of calendar applications. They would prefer to have one efficient calendar widget.

                        Calendar Widget: Month perfectly fills this niche and meets all the needs of a modern user. It has some features of an ordinary calendar, but the real great thing about this software is that it has 80 or more themes in its library.

                        The design of the application is great; the themes are perfectly tuned. There are options for almost any theme of your smartphone. The only drawback is the fact that the widget memory is not too large, and you should be ready for it.

                        At the moment, it does not have the function of connecting any third-party calendars and services. Developers allow the possibility of introducing support for Google service as an addition to the widget, if users request to have this opportunity.

                        Available for Android
