The Blog Network
Monday, 2005 March 14 - 10:12 pm
The number of blogs (er, journals) that I read daily has grown to 37.

Hello, Internet. Sorry for the dearth of articles lately; mostly this weekend I've been face down in the gutter.

Okay, no, not really. But there was some drinking involved.

Sometimes I guess it's good to take a little time off from blogging. This weekend I actually got out of the house, spent time with friends, and walked in the park. I said to myself, "Wow, I guess the real world can be pretty great, too."

But I don't think I can give up the blog world. The 37 of you whose blogs I read daily, I think of you like my virtual friends, even though most of you are really complete strangers. I read about your lives and sympathize with you. Sometimes I comment on your blogs just so you know I care. When you talk about your troubles, I find myself thinking all day about how I would help you if I could. When you talk about your accomplishments, I feel proud and happy for you.

It's nice to see so many of you supporting each other. Your comment sections are full of encouraging words. You talk to each other as if you were lifelong friends. This really is a community we're building here, a community of talented writers and thoughtful people. If I could only combine the blog world with the real world! Imagine that. Sometimes I think I should take a blogger's road trip, so I'd finally get to meet Sarah and Melissa and Kate and Lisa and everyone else who provides me with daily entertainment. I guess I'd have to hop on an airplane to meet Niki. I think it would be worth it.

Last month there was a bloggers' convention in this area, but I didn't hear about it until afterwards. From what I've read about it, there was a lot of talking but not a lot of drinking; and, most of the people there do not write poop-centric blogs. So I don't know how much I would have gotten from it. Still, I think I would have loved to have met Yasminah (a.k.a. Leimodnu) of Reason and Radical. When I read that blog, it's like I'm listening to my own voice.

Anyway, I hope I can be at least half as entertaining to all of you as you are to me. Thanks for reading, and let me know if you want to meet me for a beer.

My sentiments exactly! I would love to meet you for a beer. Perhaps we should all arrange some sort of real-time drink-a-thon, though it somehow seems wrong to have to buy someone a beer via Paypal.

Well, shoot, that does it. I'm going to have to make it to Chicago soon. If I show up at your doorstep, Sarah, don't say I didn't warn you.
