in the last couple weeks i have had random conversations with a friend who blogs.
we began talking about blogging...
okay maybe that isn't such a random topic. given we are friends and we both write blogs.
we talk about lots of other things too... really.
but on the topic of blogs which is my point, we talked about styles and trends.
the in's and out's of it all... following, followers, dirty rotten low down scum sucking spammers, comment moderation, stats, social media, etc
you know all that completely fascinating blog stuff that our
non-blogging-reading-writing friends can not relate to.
and that's okay we love those friends too.
anyway we talked mostly about specific blogs we connect to and why we do and why complete strangers would be drawn into blogs of other complete strangers and how we find blogs we love...
it's all way more mind boggling than we will ever figure out.
so all that has lead me to this...
i wondered... if you wondered why i follow the range of blogs i follow....
and that being said i am talking about YOU...
yes, your blog.
