Once again, one of my favorite bloggers has written a post that, IMO, is “right-on.” I hope each of you will follow the link and read it for yourself but before you do, I want to share a couple of points he made that I feel are very relevant in today’s world … even more so in the blogging world.
The title of the post is “Living in a bubble” and this is the part I especially liked:
Too many of us live in our own little bubble, a bubble filled with people who look like, think like, believe like, hell even smell like we do. Over time we begin to believe that our bubble is the only true world that should exist. It becomes the representation of what we think the rest of world should look like. There is no room in our bubbles for diversity or change because that would be uncomfortable. We thrive on comfort, keeping things the same whether it is a realistic view or not.
Those last two sentences remind me of many blog discussions …
The post ends with this comment:
Take the time to find some common ground with the people living outside of your bubble. Will it be easy? Oh hell no but we have to start somewhere and it might as well start with you and I.
I couldn’t put it better myself.
