Have You Heard from ???
Posted On 04/13/2015 09:12:29 by Jane

I am certain I am not the only person - there must be more folks, who miss their blogs, stories, contacts. But, how do we find out if they are "there" - in cyber space, somewhere, some country? Are they ill, busy with their lives, taking trips, etc? How do we know?

I have "met" via NOAH and known them by what they write for us.I have enjoyed hearing of vacations, families, remembered events and/or life experiences, tales that cause one to smile, while reading them. If the reader is less active than the writer, they feel(after reading the blog) that they too were experiencing things with them. I have been saddened by the pets that have gone "over the rainbow bridge", the tender memories of folks remembered in a person's life, the humor of the tricks played on another, etc.

An example, for me, is Emom101, and her blogs.She not only wrote with humor, but even shared pictures with us, of her many animals, antiques, paintings, landscapes etc. She wrote in such a way that one could mentally visualize that which she related to us. She played tricks on others and let us laugh with her, when it happened to her. I would read each of her blogs with anticipation - wondering what she would next create for us to read. It has been several months, since she last wrote. She had been ill, her computer decided to malfunction, but she "pulled it together" enough to send another humorous blog, via an answer to me. I posted it for all of you to see. I may never know how she is, where she is, etc., but I wanted her to know what joy she added to my morning checks of the computer each day.  The rest of you - your blogs have made a mark on other folks' lives, enlightening them or "lifting" their spirits. If you haven't had responses, perhaps it is because the folks don't know "how" to do it, and/or don't understand the wonderful feeling received, when one sees a response.  I appreciate all your writings or blogs, and I am glad I found NOAH, in 2008. Keep  the "doors" open,  the lines humming, and know you are appreciated. jane

Emom entertained and inspired many of us. She wrote in such a way that she  stimulated our imaginations. She made us chuckle, even if we had had a bad day, with the humor she displayed. I don't think she let us know a tenth of the challenges she had, with the government (SS) etc. and/or her health. She taught us to embrace the friends we have-animals and people- to enjoy the roof over our heads, and also how to reach out to "touch" others by her invitations to "come on in, rest yourselves, pour a cup of coffee". I hope that she is having a good life and being rewarded for all the gifts of emails and blogs she has given each of us. God Speed, Emom. jane

Great post.

I do hope we learn if the folks are still part of NOAH or if they have joined "God's Watch List". THank you for responding.

It takes people like you, responding to blogs to help them grow and blossom. Thanks for responding and giving your good ideas and thoughts.

I hope everyone finds their NOTH friends.  I know when on line friends go missing it can be distressing.  

I enjoy the blogs very much.  I tune in pretty regularly to see what's new, but lately additions are rare.  The blogs do not generate much comment.  Social media without the social isn't very engaging.   I think we need a "like" button like Facebook to let bloggers know their effort is not drifting aimlessly in cyberspace.  Participation by the membership is necessary to keep the "lines humming".  It will keep the veteran bloggers telling stories and encourage new bloggers. People are able to post memes, videos and music.  They decorate their profile pages beautifully.  With just a little effort they can figure out how to leave a comment.  I realize I am one of the new kids on the block, but I'm afraid I have begun to find blogging here a bit discouraging. I would very much like to see this become a more successful blog site because everyone I've met here has been so lovely.

I too, have felt as you do, when I have written a blog. If it only touches one person, causing him/her to respond, I appreciate that person taking the time to do it. I have enjoyed people telling of periods in their lives, funny experiences, ideas about holidays, childhoods to which we can compare ours. Personal experiences have meant a lot to me.

  It is true that it is very discouraging to pour your heart and tell your personal comings and goings in to a blog for everyone to read and MAYBE enjoy and not have a response but from a couple of your friends. I think blogs should be something that invite conversation and interchanges.  I find it very hard to post without knowing anyone is reading and liking what they read.



04/15/2015 17:20:54

I agree, it would be a possible way of contact.

January 15th was the last blog I received, via a message to me. I have looked each day and not seen one since. I hope you are correct, that she will write again soon, for all of us. THank you for your reply.
