50 Posts Prove Our Words are Important
What we say and what we write makes a difference.
Our words change us and the people around us. While it sounds like a shift in blogging is in the air, the one thing that will never change is the importance of spreading ideas.
When I asked you to send me the most important post you’ve written, and/or read this year, you delivered.
The following posts were not voted on. They weren’t given an award and they were not on the front page of anything, but a blog. They were however important, and often life changing to someone else. (and what is more important than that?)
There are posts about love and family. Some are about business, travel or learning a new skill. While not every post will apply to you or your lifestyle, each is important to someone.

Some things we write are just for fun, but usually there is a message or lesson. A message of hope or inspiration, or a lesson in business or life.
Maybe blogging will change, as everything does, but hopefully we can preserve the best parts of blogging and free content. You don’t need a perfect design, all the right widgets, advertisers or thousands of readers to write something important. If your writing is meaningful to just one person, it is important. Even if that person is you.
What important work have you created lately? What important work has changed your mind, your business or your life?
