Since I've started this blog I've had MANY conversations with friends and colleagues about the issues which blogging raise, mostly concerning privacy and security. It's been a fascinating dialogue so far, and I expect it will continue.
I wrote some time back about why I blog; rereading that post this morning, I can see I'm making progress on the goals I outlined.
The best part of the blog so far has been the opportunity to be in touch with friends; witness this note I received from a friend just this morning (in response to my post Thursday on the great day I had:
"Andrew – So glad to see another Idol viewer – I get to blame it on the boys, but it is incredible how many conversations happen when you find out who else watches – I loved the detail of the day and appreciate you making it easy for me to keep up with what is going on with your releases. In a world where keeping up with friends is disappointingly hard, this type of thing is a great filler."
While this kind of being in touch is certainly no substitute for live or even phone conversations, it's way better than not being in touch at all.
Off to make some pancakes for the kids.....
