There's a really nice post in Coming to Terms, by mlraminiak, on Families and Friends. It reminds us of what we all still share, and also of a really neat, free, easy service called Bloglines. It lets you subscribe to blogs all over the Web. I have yet to sign up there, but it's definitely on my to-do list.
Though I don't comment as often as I should, I've always read blogs all over the place -- and J-Land is still included, of course. Friends and good authors remain so, regardless of their address. Hope you feel the same.
