SUPPORT YOUR FELLOW BLOGGERS

Hi everyone, my name is Andy Thomson and my passion is letting the world know that there is great writers/bloggers out there, and am writing this post to try and get people to visit my site and discover the talented writers who’s posts I have shared.

Sharing somebody else’s work brings us together as a community of like minded people and gives us the opportunity to experience the thoughts, highlights and adventures of those who write the posts. Together we can educate and bring together people from all over the world, and in today’s current climate that’s, not such a bad thing.

The challenges that we face in life will always be there, but it’s how you take on those challenges that are important, and writing for me personally is one way of dealing with those challenges.  You will find that by reading about somebody else’s experiences can help another person then writing that post was worth it. Writing is also about having fun, so it’s not all doom and gloom, it can also make you laugh, and that’s a medicine in its self.

So please take time out to visit lincolnlifesite.wordpress.com read their posts and share with others because you do make a difference.

thanks so much for reading this post
