A Real Web
I think it is funny and amazing when I stumble upon one of the regular readers here commenting on another blog. Not so much that is unlikely something like that would ever happen, but more because there are so many blogs out there that there is little random chance the other blogs would have been found on their own. The readers were either curious or liked what a commenter said here and they back tracked them to their blogs.
Just the other day I saw that Darev and Loopy commented at Donna’s blog. I see “g” and Donna commenting on Darev’s blog and so-on. It’s like we are all being connected exactly like the Web .
Each of us write differently, but we do share similar interests or topics. We can easily spend a couple minutes with one another, but I doubt we like being stuck in a room with each other for a day.
I subscribe to 65 blogs through blog-lines and I think I need to weed out those that never post anymore and those I’ve totally lost interest in. Once my list is lighter, I may start taking on some of your readers.
I enjoy the diversity of the audience here and I think we have a good cross section of American society. From what I gather the readers here are from most racial groups except I don’t think there are any East Asian readers, or at least anyone high-lighting their East Asian heritage in their comments. There are several Canadians, and an occasional Australian. As for the country, there are readers from Oregon, Washington, Virginia, California, Idaho, North Carolina, Vermont, New York, Mississippi, Kansas and Missouri and Michigan. Am I missing anyone? Readers are also Right wing and Left wing in unequal proportions. Left leaners are about four to one. Some even get Christmas Cards from Lars Larson.
There a lot of parents with young children that visit here. There a three inter-racial families that I know of. There are a lot of Lesbian readers here, but no gay men that I know of. The age of the readers range from early 20s to early 70s. The formal education level of most readers is pretty high.
I’m delighted to have such diverse individuals visiting here daily, and I’m delighted that you visit one another. It shows we are all connection points of the web. It is so nice to share.
