The blog’verse can be a weird, weird place on occasion. You visit random links and blogs, reading what other people write, sometimes interacting, sometimes just lurking. Some bloggers you never get to know, you just read but don’t engage. Elsewhere you might leave comments and get to know bloggers. You see the comments they leave elsewhere, you see their name pop up in different places.
You may never be close but you know them.
And then you get an email telling you to take a look at their blog. And the whole suddenness and unpredictability of life in general slaps you across the face.
