Blogging Is Not A Single Players Game

by DiTesco

blogging friends

Words of wisdom from my good friend Hesham of FamousBloggers. And if there is any proof of this, I will lay it out to you right now.

First, I would like to apologize to all my friends and readers for being inactive lately. The reason for this is that me and my family had faced a tragedy which can not be expressed in words. A month has gone by and solid and airtight evidence as my good friend Holly Jahangiri says, is unfortunately not there yet and police investigations are still ongoing. This is really a very hard time for us but life goes on and the closure we are looking for is hopefully eminent. We’ll see.

Anyway, and going back to “blogging is not a single payers game”, I really am convinced that it is now more than ever difficult to succeed with your online endeavors if you decide to play the game alone. This recent event that happened to me has forced me to virtually abandon online activities for a while and if it were not for my friends and favorite community of bloggers (BloggerLuv and Power50), my blog would have been abandoned and face all the consequences. You do know what the consequences of an inactive blog would be, right?

Anyway, about a month ago, I informed that I had to tend to some personal matters and would appreciate if everyone could bear with me during an undetermined amount of time. Needless to say that I have received more than I could ask for. I got emails, comments, retweets, and more than that, guest post from Mitch of I’m Sharing and Aswani of Future Perfect. My favorite community of bloggers, BloggerLuv and Power50 have all supported me during this period and to all of you, a big thank you. I can not express this enough. You all have been wonderful and I sincerely hope that one day I can do the same for you regardless of the reason. You all have kept my blog alive and writing what I feel is not possible.

While I am not yet completely recovered, I intend to little by little resume both my online and offline activities. If you ever had doubts whether you should be part of a community, build relationships and so on, let this be proof that “blogging is not a single players game” (not anymore).

You where here my friend, in your thoughts. I can’t thank you enough for all the support you have given me. I’m sure that somewhere along the way, I will have the opportunity to reciprocate your kindness. Have a great week ahead.

Hello DiTesco,

It’s good to see you back in action even if it’s on a limited basis. Like someone else said, family and personal matters should always be given top priority.

Your blogging and other online activities will always be there waiting for you. Especially when you have built relationships with so many wonderful and understanding friends.

Take good care my friend and I wish you all the best.

Interaction is the hallmark of all that is good about Web 2.0 and one hopes about what will be good about Web 3.0 or the semantic web too.
