Me: I’ve started a blog.
Him: What’s a blog?
Me: It’s a web log – blog – get it?
Him: You mean on the internet?
Me: Because I like reading blogs – I want to contribute too – I want somewhere to archive my scatty ideas – I want a place to vent, and rant, and rave. I want to meet new people. I want to feel part of a community.
Him: And a blog will do all that?
*gazes thoughtfully out the window*
It’s another way of linking to the world. Of staying in touch. But it needs to be more than one-way.
Him: How do you do that?
Me: Make it interesting enough that people will come back for more.
Him: What? Like this conversation?
Me: Well, maybe not – but it’s a start.
Him: Good luck – I reckon you’ll need it!
