Blog posts possess tremendous value for the reader searching for opinions or information on a topic.
Blog posts possess tremendous value for those building up their attention spans for the day they appreciate reading enough for a book to hold their attention.
Blog posts that are outflow of what writers know or have accomplished shed tremendous light on life, work and life, spirituality and life, relationships and life.
I want readers to read my blog posts alongside the books they love because my blog posts are written for enrichment of their lives and mine. It is true blog posts can in reality be nothing more than facile attempts at self aggrandizement. If we learn to celebrate posts which most enrich and challenge our lives, our thoughts, our actions, our beliefs, alongside blogs that merely are entertaining, reading of blogs never can be characterized as waste of time.
I personally have been enriched by my reading on the Medium platform. I have discovered for instance that lots of spiritual systems, some of which do not involve any notion of God, can in so far as their guiding principles are concerned be described as permutations of Christian beliefs.
If you are reading this, I encourage you to check out my blog articles on the Medium platform. I am confident you will find at least one article that will pique your interest.
There does not exist any other path to openness of mind than reflective reading.
