Blogging and community

A lot of people around here have announced they're quitting the blog thing, or they're going to. It makes me kind of sad, actually. It's like a neighbor who up and announces they're moving halfway around the world. I can see why someone would quit. Blogging is time-consuming and can take away from other things one might do or want to do. It can feel like an obligation rather than something fun to do.

I find blogging very grounding, actually, and quite helpful in thinking through some of the many crazy things in my head. I write this blog for myself mostly, but have come to immensely enjoy the other blogs I read and the people that stop by here and comment. I completely appreciate the connections I've made through this blog. Though they are tenuous and far flung, they are real nonetheless.

I wish everyone who chooses to move on the best. Know that you will be missed.
