Thoughts about these posts. When I first started blogging I hadn’t any clue that community existed in the blogopshere. Since then I have learned that there is community. There is support and there are friends that I have made. I have shared some of my most intimate thoughts and feelings with you. I have let you see the soft underbelly and for the most part I have found it to be rewarding.

Blogging has and continues to be a positive experience for me. I have stumbled onto some fascinating blogs and learned about people that I never would have met. I am grateful for the experiences. I am humbled by much of what I have seen.

Some people claim that cyberspace is not real, but they are wrong. It is real. There are real people with real feelings and experiences. It has been a blessing.

    “It is a hell of a ride, isn’t it.”

    Just like the Helter Skelter, baby.

    Hi Mark,

    It is a hell of a ride, isn’t it.

    Richmond,

    Loved that movie.

    Annie,

    Some people consider cyberspace to be a place in which you can set aside common social courtesy because they do not view others as being real people.

    Paula,

    Clearly you have excellent taste in music.

    Rivka,

    I have learned quite a bit from blogging.

    Rav Fleischmann,

    There aren’t too many good surprises, but this was clearly one of them.

    Amishav,

    Thank you.

    I’m totally with you Jack- there are some fascinating people out here- and you’re one of them

    Nice post. I was also happly surprised about the blogging community. And I am also pleased with blogging (ppp).

    There’s a lot to say on the subject, but long story short – it is real and it is worth it.

    It has certainly been a blessing for me. I don’t know that I would have come to the same conclusions or perspectives without the people I’ve met through blogging.

    Love those tunes! Yep, what you say online is as real as any other form of communication, which is kind of a bummer for people who insist that they should be allowed to act like jerks with impunity.

    Depends what you mean by “real.” It seems sort of silly to decry the reality of something that clearly exists.

    The Commitments version of Mustang Sally is still my fave – but any Mustang Sally is good Mustang Sally. 🙂

    And cyberspace is very real to me.

    (I think I may need more caffine though…)

    “Some people claim that cyberspace is not real, but they are wrong. It is real. There are real people with real feelings and experiences. It has been a blessing.”

    I agree, Jack. Even with the various downsides of maintaining a public site, the good far exceeds the bad.
