When the idea came to me, it started this way.

A Farmer’s Analogy

I consider a blog like a tree.

A tree has its roots on fertile and firm ground. A blog is anchored to the imagination of its author, grounded in the basic principle of freedom of expression with responsibility.

A tree rises with a strong trunk to mature. A blog will build up its creator’s confidence to persevere.Β 

A tree creates new branches and greening leaves. A blog will offer greater possibilities to provide its writer a medium to hone his writing skills by producing meaningful content.

A tree will attract every creature under its shade. A blog will persuade visitors, who manage their own blogs, to stay for a time and interact.

A tree will produce fragrant flowers that will eventually bloom. A blog will store memorable posts that will blossom in the hearts and minds of readers.

A tree will bear fruits that will taste as sweet as honey. A blog will give its creator the satisfying fruits of his labor.

A tree. A blog.

  3. I really adore the tree/blog analogy. I can certainly see this to be true. I have always thought of trees like people – some as old souls who have graced us with their presence through the years. I can see a blog as the souls of its creator. How long it stays around remains to he seen, but it is a piece of our soul:)

    1. I am a farmer so I see the two, farming and blogging, in relation to each other. I am glad you approve. πŸ™‚
      You are correct. All living things share life with one another to form a natural bond.
      The soul analogy is really inspiring. Thanks. πŸ™‚

  4. Great analogy, something everyone should think about…it can build a healthy blog (in terms of what the creator wants and believes to be healthy). Nice blog.
