Remember how easy it was to make friends in school? The person in front of you in line at the bookstore or lunch line, or the one sitting in the same classroom, perhaps with the same last name/
In blogland, it starts easily enough. One visit, one comment. If the other reciprocates, another visit, another comment. We then sign up to follow each other and continue to visit and write comments for a while.
Do people we follow or follow us in blogland become life-long friends? Do they become as good as neighbors, as close as those we meet at church? What attracts us and repels us? I know that in my writing group we never talk religion or politics.
Does the same rule apply in blogland?
