PEOPLE WANT TO TALK



People want to talk about things. They want to relate and live in community and converse and be together. Sometimes they just need a place to do it – to get the conversation started, a platform that allows them to linger and find one another.

My intention for this blog was not get a lot of subscribers for numbers sake, though I’ve been fortunate in doing so anyway. My goal still exists, however – I want readers to subscribe because they see All My Happy Endings as a place to relate to and live in community.

I write from my personal perspective and I hope people will see something hopeful in the words, something that perhaps calls courage out from places within that have been forgotten. I kindly ask my readers to venture into the lives of other bloggers, shop owners, and even commenters…click on their links and take a peek of their world. You might realize it’s easier to connect than you thought it might be. Truth being, if you’re here and they’re here, you both might have something in common.

Are you waiting for someone else to reach out to you? If so, what it’s they’re waiting for YOU?

    1. You're so right -- I've met some of the most wonderful people via blogging. And if there weren't so many miles between us, we'd be together today.

  5. Love this! I was telling my husband the other night that with being a newish stay at home mom living abroad it has been really nice having a community of women (especially Christian mothers) through blogging.

    I am a new follower via the Blog-Hop!

    1. Absolutely! I would think in your case especially, it feels like home. I hope you are blessed with tangible friendships, too, living abroad. I hope someone gives you a hug every now and again. xoxo

  6. I could really relate to this post. I so love blogging more than Facebook-I guess because I feel people stop by and read because they want to and for no other reason. I hope that remains true. I have been following you for a while and I absolutely LOVE what you wrote about yourself Under Why I blog-more about me. You are beautiful inside and out. Thanks Kristen @ Onein1hundred.blogspot.com

    1. Kristen, you truly made me tear up -- thank you! It's words like yours that inspire me to keep writing this blog. I cherish you more than you know! xoxo

  7. Truly love this sentiment, and I feel the same way. I wouldn't be the person I am now without my online circle of friends. I met my best friend through fandom, which is a *sort* of blogging, and I can't imagine my life without her or without my personal twitter support system. It's home to me.
