Blogs can turn faceless strangers into close friends



Blogs can turn faceless strangers into close friends

I've been searching the internet for blogging sites for a while and recently came across a whole blogging community, which has caught my eye. His name is Joe User and it is a site that many bloggers from all over the world participate in. It is very well organized into categories such as Best Articles, Latest Blog Posts, Top Blog Sites, New Sites, and Most Popular Bloggers.

The aspect that has attracted me the most is the very personal type of blogging community. Many people talk about their feelings and life problems with people they have technically never met face to face. However, the kind of camaraderie that I have 'witnessed' as a viewer has really blown me away. These people talk to each other as if they were very close friends, and the strange thing is that I think this is the reality.

When something important happens to a person in their life, up to 100 or more comments will come to their blog post with advice and information, as well as emotional support from their blogging friends. Of course, there are some differences of opinion, but the general perspective seems to be that of a positive approach to humanity. People are really pouring out their souls to each other and then accepting criticism and discussing possible solutions to problems. I find this to be truly inspiring, a human community or 'tribe' that has formed simply because of the existence of the internet.

Some write new posts every day, as well as articles and conversations. The conversations usually take place in the 'comments' section where one can see that these people often stay up late into the morning, blogging with each other. The amount of love these random acquaintances share is staggering. The whole experience could be perceived as a form of therapy, but I think it is much more than that. I think this is a sign of revolution. The arrival of the New Human Tribe has begun.

If random bloggers can evolve into a community of people who trust, respect, and are close and close to each other, this says a lot about the human condition. People are tired of the segregated and separatist reality of countries, cultures, races and religions. These group blog sites, or collective online diaries, as I like to think of them, are a symbol of the future connection of all humanity. It may take a hundred years, or a thousand, or maybe just fifty, but it definitely seems like there's still hope for greedy humans at war. One day we can all become "one" again in our minds and in our physical forms.
