Blogging versus Facebook

Hi. It’s me again. Returning from the dead? Far from it, which you would know if you followed me on Facebook. 😉
When I first started blogging just over seven years ago, I was intensely gratified by the instant access to readers’ hearts and minds. Compared to conventional publishing it was a dream come true. Step up with me now to the EVEN GREATER WORLD of SOCIAL NETWORKING, where instant communication with an audience is taken to the next shining level. At least, that’s how it seems. Facebook and Twitter keep you front-stage on many people’s news-feeds, but there’s something about a blog that brings back the old feelings of leather-bound books, and … What’s a book? A book is a pile of papers stuck together on one edge, bound in a soft or hard cover, presenting worlds of nurturing information in a cozy old-fashioned way … Um, ah, a blog is a bit more like a book, although much more instant, where deeper thoughts and feelings can be laid out than on the social media freeways.

Anyway, I’m back, and glad to be here with you. It’s been a long break — over half-a-year — and you can still find me at, but I intend to saunter back into this comfortable corner more often now.
This blog is not as cozy as a warm book, but in this fast motion world, I hope it will continue to provide you with a few moments here and there to catch your breath and feel your precious self.

Now, to prove that I’m really not dead, here’s a tiny bit of what I’ve been up to lately:

And I feel greatly honoured to know that over 108,000 times, fellow human beings have been drawn to the pages herein. (You in Italy who came here at 13:57 on June 3, let me know if you read this!)
