Sorry I’ve been so silent lately, but I had to come out of hiding today. It is my one-year blogiversary!
I think the first blog I wandered into by accident was Jordon Cooper‘s. I remember thinking, “I don’t get it. It looks like random thoughts from one person. What is the appeal?” My gut told me there was something to it that I just wasn’t seeing. So as I wrote in my very first entry, “I’m really here because I want to learn what blogging is about, and like anything else, how can you learn without doing?”
What I learned was astonishing: that in a computer-based world of networks and hyperlinks, here was a system that depended on people. We, the readers, are the linking agents. I started wandering around, and found various interesting conversations. And some wonderful people found me.
So whether you are a close friend (old or new), a regular visitor, or just happen to be passing through, thank you. Leave a comment! (And for my homeys who say, “I don’t know how to leave a comment,” it’s easy. See the link that says Comments? Click it, and fill in the form.)
