I liked this bit in Al's post about the future of the blog, in response to the idea that blogs might be dying-
'..could be right about the blog community generally. Just not this one.
I feel as though the blog community I'm a part of is alive and vibrant. And it seems as though I've got to know you pretty well even though I haven't met most of you.'
I agree with that. I feel like I'm part of a small community, and that kind of unexpectedly it's solidified into something that feels pretty permanent to me. Obviously we all read different blogs and therefore our 'communities' might differ a bit. But I feel like there is a group of people out there, that come here, and I read their stuff, and we bump into each other around the traps online. And occasionally in my dreams.
I like that.
