Relationships

Kathy made an interesting observation on my previous post "Change" - does writing blogposts form relationships between people?

I think it does. Very much so. The "Call for Support" blog is demonstrative of that, as we share the sad and the happy, the triumphs and disasters in our lives. And sharing such does form a bond. The blogs being abandoned means the bond is weakened if not lost. I don't think that Facebook could really replace that, and certainly Twitter cannot. We'll have to see how things pan out.

  1. OH ABSOLUTELY!!! I've met friends here that I consider REAL friends, and I'm just as sad when I don't 'see' them anymore. You grow to care about these people that share so much of their lives with us.

  2. I certainly would say that blogging does bring friendships that can be lasting...It has always amazed me how a real close friendship can develope when one has never actually met the person in the flesh so to speak...It is the same as one can dislike someone whithout having met them....must be the way one writes etc.
    I thank God for our friendship x
