It seems everyday I learn something new about blogging, what it truly is, why I do it, and the audience that I reach. Several months ago I was researching an article when I stumbled across a picture that very closely resembled a similar one I had seen depicting a Russian landscape. I was so enthralled to have found something that I felt brought common ground between Russia and this country. I realized that I could do this for each country where a person had come from and visited my blog. Mirror Reflections was born! As new individuals came and learned a little about Russia, I thought not only would I visit their blog, I would create something that said, “Thank you” for coming by and visiting. I’ve not only have learned about the country I now live in but about the countries of those who visit my blog. I love finding what is similar, or maybe not so similar but might provoke one to think possibly a little differently about Russia or even their own country. We truly are all connected, no pun intended. I’ve learned so much from each of you while visiting your blogs. Then I began to realize, that not only could I share a reflection, and could also create connections from my blog to another blog by sharing a small part of theirs into the reflection. If someone finds something of interest they can click the link and move to the blog that I might have just promoted. It kinda keeps things in-house so to speak. I understand the value of increased traffic through outside sources are important but why not link ourselves together in a whole new way. Just a thought! If it’s something you see the value in create a Reflections page, start posting reflections and connecting to those of common interest. Thanks for stopping by and giving it a thought.
If you have stopped by and visited this page, leave a bit of information about a post that you think represents your country’s culture, geography, people, food, poetry, etc.. Even give an idea what part of the country you are from so we can collaborate on a “Mirror Reflection” let’s see how this all evolves and where it goes. Let’s call them “blogcards”. It could be interesting and fun at the same time.
I decided that it would be good to connect to all those wonderful countries here.
