The Blog World

It’s a whole interesting world out there. I’ve been noticed and linked to. (Silly me. As pleased as if I were 5.) Check it out: Dove’s Eye View, subtitled “An Arab-American woman sees signs of hope.” (I hope she’s right.) And there’s a third blog whose creator has commented on both mine and Dove’s Eye View, and I imagine that I shall soon be commenting on hers: Velveteen Rabbi.

There’s a whole set of categorizations for folks that you’ve “met” in cyberspace but not in person, indicating the closeness and type of relationship.  I wonder whether and how those tags help anyone. Having photos brings the person to life a little more, but I really do wonder how important it is to interact face to face and in person. It’s the same question I’ve been debating off and on with Teenaged Foster Daughter, who has phone acquaintances she’s never (or rarely) met in person.

That’s all for this morning. I really had to get dead chickens off the top of my blog. I was tired of logging in to check for comments and seeing that post still. The remaining chickens are doing well, thank you very much, and I’m not too traumatized by the memories of the two dead ones. Chag urim sameach, happy 5th day of Chanukah.
