Big happy online family

A reader mentioned that she is developing affection for people she has never met in person, like Torq (AKA Philosopher King, AKA Matt).

I definitely agree. Although I've spent plenty of time with the Philosopher King, I would never have known some of you if I hadn't started this blog. I don't even know all of your names, but you always make me laugh.

Many of you have your own blogs. I read your stuff every time you post. You guys are not nearly as passive-aggressive as I am, and I really appreciate your writing.

The best thing about keeping this blog has been staying in touch with my family. That was the reason I started the blog in the first place, and it's been more successful than I could have hoped, even though Michael has quit doing videos. I copied the idea from my friend Amy, whose blog actually made the front page of Name of Paper Withheld after the Forces of Evil tried to take her down.

I love all of you, even the ones who seem more than a little odd. And the ones who are even weirder than that. (You know who you are.)

Thanks for the kind words. I too started blogging to keep family and friends in touch while I'm away. It's grown into a full blown hobby :-)

Saskboy, you're my hero. I don't know how you manage to write so often.

I really enjoyed your Election '08 stunt, by the way.

Are you saying that someone actually READS my blog? I thought that it was just the six of us over there!

This changes things, doesn't it? :)
