Five Minute Friday: Community

It’s Friday again, and time for another quick write based on a one word prompt from The Gypsy Mama.

This week’s word: Community

As an introverted extrovert (yes, tis true, that’s what I’ve decided I am), I need community.

In fact, even the most introverted people I know still need a community. It may be a quieter, less rambunctious crowd, but they need a few key people with whom to connect.

Humans are social animals. We live in communities because we need to have a need for social connection fulfilled.

And in my real life, community is clearly present: my schools, my family, my friends, my town.

In my blogging life, it hasn’t always been so clear. But it is today. I am a member of amazing writing and blogging communities.

The SITSGirls  give me support.

Studio30 Plus challenges me to be the best writer I can be.

My friends on Twitter offer friendship and fun.

Facebook followers offer their own unique perspectives.

And those people are just as important to my life as some of the ones I see every day.

So, if you’re a blogger feeling isolated, even if you’re an introvert, reach out…build that community, or find one where you feel welcome…and just be a part of it.

It’s like nothing else.
