Sometimes discovering and reading the blogs is a bit like being a stranger in a another land. You never know what topic is next. Sometimes blogs have the word "Sex" in the headline and there is no sex once you read them. Others give you no warning and you walk eye balls first into a blog containing explicit sex.
Sometimes you run into in old friends, or make a new friend over blogs.
Sometimes you wonder "what in the hell is this person thinking?" when reading a blog. Sometimes it is like they just crawled through your brain and stole what you were thinking and typed it out in a blog. (I like it when that happens, but it is kinda scary as well.)
Some blogs can make you cry. This is particularly true of the blogs that write from the heart about the abuse/rape/child molestation/illness the owner has lived through. Some blogs make you think "One flew over the Cuckoo's nest" because you disagree with the writer over politics/religion/beliefs/what ever makes you think they are fruit bat crazy.
I am new to the blog system. I have been on myspace for quite some time, and had posted over 1000 blogs. But I did not know there was a whole blog community I was missing out on! I came across Blogophilia one day and it was like I became an "Accidental Tourist"! Link to BLOGOPHILIA
I found Blogophilia by following the links on DJ6ual's blog. For that you are at the top of my list!
Crazy*PJS (1) gave me my very first "E" blog award! Thank you so much! Since then they have been flooding in. WOW! (that reminds me, I need to put up a few more, but I have been battling this dizziness for a few days and have not been up to it yet.)
Dr. Gaga Pie was one of the first to reach out a hand and offer friendship. For that I will be ever thankful!
I learned that Nissmech and I have the military in common, and that he is not as intimidating as I first thought, he is actually a very nice man.
I have learned that James Bond has some skills. He bar tends in the BLOGOPHILIA comment section, and he tries very hard to welcome all new people.
