Trying to Find Community

Julie Leung: “Strange as it may sound, it felt refreshing tonight to talk to people whose blogs I read, and who read my blog. Right now, I am trying to find community, and so I am meeting new people who don't know me at all. Even though I hadn't met some of the bloggers or I don't see them in person often, I have read what they write, and I felt comfortable mentioning these things in conversation as given facts - and I felt equally comfortable when they mentioned items from my blog. It's not the same as being best friends or even neighbors on the same street. But blogging does build bonds and I felt these bonds tonight.”
