Why I Write Here at Persona Paper
It is not a secret that I love Persona Paper.
I am not talking about a platform or features. Nor is it because they give me an opportunity to write or make a little bit of money doing so.
Platforms and features are a dime-a-dozen. One can write, whether there are computers, or online sites, or not.
If it is a little money you need, there are a myriad of options available --collecting aluminum cans for recycling; getting a part-time job; or standing on a corner with a cardboard sign, "Hungry-Need Help." All have worked for others looking for a little bit of money.
I write here at Persona Paper because of the people.
All the other things mentioned are certainly a side benefit. I am grateful for all that I experience, but the bottom line for me is the PEOPLE.
These last few days I have felt overwhelmed and a bit blue. Signing in here was not a priority, but it has become a practice.
Here are three articles that were sitting in my queue when I showed up. Each made a difference in my life, because of the people who wrote them, and the relationships we have forged using this platform:
- Honest mom, I did brush my teeth! by Kasman . This is one of the funniest stories I have ever read, that our dear Mr. K wrote as the winner of the first ever BEST CAPTION Writing Contest/Challenge. He stepped up to the task, and was brilliant, all the way through! I needed this laughter this morning!
- Into each life a little rain may fall by &AbbyG . This woman's down-to-earth, honest approach to every day she wakes up is so refreshing. Our AbbyG "tells life like it is," and I so appreciate her. If I could ever have been given a big sister, I would have wanted it to be her.
- Attracting and Keeping New Members by Feisty56 . Deb Jones is one of the most supportive people I have ever known on- and off-line. Her commitment to those who have earned her trust is remarkable, and when she believes in something or someone, she puts action behind her words. Thank you, Deb, for being part of my "tribe."
There are so many people here on Persona Paper that mean so much to me. I love each and every one. They have become like family.
But today, I started my day with these three, who seemed to know exactly what I needed today.
Yes, it is true. I write here at Persona Paper because of the people.
Note from Author: I invite you to use the links and read each of the articles I mentioned above. You may be reminded of just how important laughter, life, and friendship is to us all.
