Since I'm so eager to get back into the swing on blogging, I went through my blog roll. It sort broke my heart a little.
I miss some of the folks I used to connect with. Some are still around, some in new bloggy digs, but some have disappeared. The ones who have disappeared I just can't help but wonder if they are okay...probably, but I still want to know. Some of these folks I had a great time with. I know it's hard to imagine having a good time with people you've never met before - but seriously. We read about each other's lives, we comforted each other, shared joys, sadness, anxieties, rants, debates, and oh hell yes we laughed with each other. Some of us partied on MSN until obscene hours of our respective time zones and had an absolute blast. My early days of motherhood were shared with these folks through this blog. Hell, after the brutal creative beating I took in college, I recovered any will I had left to write on this blog. My readers were a huge motivation.
I'm glad to see that some are still out here in the sphere. I've always lurked here and there even when I wasn't writing.
Anyhow, now that I'm back - I hope I can reconnect with some that are still around. I look forward to making new connections. I remember fondly and hope the people who have moved on are well.
I don't mind writing into an abyss. I did it when I first started, I'll do it again. Besides lurkers are just a click away...
****you can skip his little preamble - but his song about video blogs is cute.
