Every time. Every single time. Perhaps because they're beautiful, meaningful, perfect. Or because they speak to my heart. Maybe because they draw out a deliciously aching, perfectly wistful, sweetly nostalgic feeling of longing. Or because they explode with joy and triumph and make me want to dance. Because of this, and this, and this, it's impossible for me to listen just once... I am greedy, I want more, and so I must go back for seconds.
Blogging daily is not just a test of endurance; it's also an opportunity to learn a lot about yourself: How you write, what your blog means to you, and where you should focus. We're celebrating the close of National Blog Posting Month with some inspiring quotes by bloggers who took the challenge -- you might be surprised by what they learned.

By 2025 this number is expected to escalate to 80 million when India will be crowned Diabetes Capital of the World. Not a nice thing. Certainly not a title to aspire for....more
Until October 22, 2013, my focus had narrowed to include less and less and less until it was solely on my heart. Anxiety and panic have plagued me my whole life. I remember hating to go to bed as a child because I knew my nightly fate was to lie there hearing and feeling my heart pounding. People who don't have heart problems think I exaggerate when I say this, but I am serious. I could hear my heartbeats through my skull, via bone conduction I guess, and through the mattress and pillow. Sometimes I could see my hearbeat through my shirt, a little ripple fluttering under the fabric....more

Yes, this is a bit of a rant. The title was meant to forewarn those who may offend easily, because there's simply no way to say what I have to say without possibly sounding like a total snob. So, here goes nothing:...more
