This is an Eclectic Spaghetti Taraday that I couldn't let pass me by. If it is time to appreciate bloggers and blogging, then count me in!
I tentatively started blogging about six years ago. There were at least three personal blogs that came and went. I also involved myself with...lets see....five group blogs. I think those ones are actually all still up, but inactive for the most part. I have had this blog for about 3.5 years now. For the first year, at least, I had virtually no contact with the outside world. People may have stumbled in now and then, but I wasn't part of a community, so to speak. I do know that Tara was the first one to start regularly commenting and it was through her blog that I connected with several of the bloggers whom I read and comment on, while they read and comment here! A community. I love reading people's comments...getting that feedback makes blogging feel productive and there is the whole venting aspect as well. If you look at my blogroll, you will see not just fellow bloggers, but in my mind at least, friends! People whom I respect, admire, and appreciate every day.
So, cheers! Here's to you, B-B-B-Bloggers! I ♥ you and your blogs and your comments on my blog.
