I Just Want To Be Part of Your Community…

7 Comments

Online, at least.

This sounds totally creepy but I’ll explain, I promise.

To me, blogging is about being a part of something larger than myself. Whenever I post, I go into it knowing that I’m writing an article or sharing a picture that then becomes a small piece in this much larger community of fans and other writers, mostly food lovers like myself.

In fact, if there are pros about the ubiquitous of the internet and social media (and there are pros), one of them has to be that it connects these widespread groups of people across physical spaces, it connects people with common interests but maybe nowhere to showcase or enjoy those interests in their physical environments. The internet, and blogs, create amazing communities of people who are eager to share, comment, collaborate and explore together.

As a blogger, I look to others’ posts for inspiration (and of course give credit accordingly). In the same vein, I rely on the kindness of others to like and share my content for others to enjoy.

I just want to show people great food, but in order to do that, I need all of you to spread the word! If you like something that I post, like it, link it, share it. The only way to create an online community is to create connections and there’s nothing like a simple hyperlink to bring lots of food-related happiness to people all over the world!

Thanks guys!

  3. I love the image that you used to help show the kind of identity that a food blog can have. Also, I completely agree with you that blogging is about being a part of something larger than myself. You need a great community to have a great blog.

  4. This last post of the semester was well written and pretty compelling! I share the same views with you on how HUGE hyperlinks can be towards generating views. They are essential. Btw, I plan to continue my Funkadelic Astronaut blog after this semester is over! So stop by periodically and give me a shout out and I can do the same to you!

  5. Online communities are a great place to take refuge after dealing with the real world and food helps too, so this blog is the perfect mix. I have really like a lot of you recipes and I think I am going to try and keep up with my blog as well so hit me up. If you plan on keeping this around then I would appreciated it.

  6. I like how you focused on the idea of communities when it comes to all of us sharing each other’s blogs. As a class, we can be considered a community and we can all help each other out by sending each other’s blogs into the much larger community that is the internet.

  7. I love how you incorporated the picture at the bottom. It’s similar to my blog post because I put a meme at the end. I think in today’s world, sharing is becoming a lot easier. I’ll tweet your blog if you tweet mine!
