Soo much blog fun

These are the five blogs I read on a regular basis, assuming they exist and have been updated:

Ryan: ryanboyle.net/weblog
Addy: osuaddy.blogspot.com
Emily: honeynuts.blogspot.com
Patrick: pidat420.blogspot.com
Jenni: irishjenni.blogspot.com

Sooooooo fun. :-) They are all quite interesting. But the sad thing is that blogs have taken the place of actually interacting with people on a regular basis. It's like it went from in person to on the phone to AIM to away messages to blogs. Tears. BUT I think we have a ray of hope in the world through commenting and responding to other people's blogs on our own blogs. I love my comments and I TRY to comment on other people's blogs, though I'm not always the best at it. I'm working on it.

To respond to Jenni's comment: keep commenting, my life is crazy and I realize that. And I changed from pink because I thought it was too hard to read. If you really don't think it is, I can change back to pink I guess but I'm trying to do something for the greater good.

And to fill you all in on Craigslist boy, we talked for an hour and a half last night. It was one of those conversations that goes late into the night and you have so much to talk about and you don't ever want it to end. So that was excellent. I hope to meet him this weekend. I have so much to say about him but I'm trying NOT to analyze him in my head so if I start writing it in my blog that will first require doing it in my head so I'm just going to not do it all together! :-)

You're right, pink is a little hard to read. I can't change mine though because you use all the edits you've made to the template (I have that list of links on the right). And now that I have this elusive addy's blog I can start putting the puzzle together for the Portland puzzle. AND, I think you would talk to everyone less if you could only use the phone because everyone's running around at different times. At least now we can all talk whenever it is convenient and pick up when we can.

The weblogging world is wonderful for many reasons, one of which is exactly the reason you state. I started the weblog when I found a lot of my friends either moving away or getting busier and more distant in a metaphorical sense. I wanted to have a place where they could check in at their convenience and see what's new in my life and what's on my mind. It seems to be working out. Asynchronous, broadcast communications are better than no contact at all.

I take a very geeky pride in my weblog being the only one listed with its own (non-blogspot) domain.
