Whether you comment or not, I know you’ve been by and it makes me happy. It means people have taken the time to read what I write and that’s gratifying.
It’s a thrill, still, to check in and see who’s been by and what she or he’s had to say.
It’s conversation. It’s a daily visit with friends that I may never see in person. Much as I’d love to meet each of you, I know it’s unlikely to ever happen. I’m content know that the words I post touch you in some way and you care enough to say so.
It reminds me of the coffee crowd at the local cafes. You know the ones I mean. They meet each day, sometimes twice a day, to settle the affairs of the world and have a laugh.
Blog buddies are the coffee crowd of a different generation. We don’t have to leave the house to visit with our friends though it may be healthier in the long run. With the Internet we don’t have to our homes to visit the world and spend time with friends. Some days that is the best option.
Friends stop by here and I go to their corners of the blogosphere. We have a visit or a rant or laugh. It’s good and good for us and I’m grateful for the opportunity.
