When my son was 16 (could that really be 7 years ago?), he and his friends were all blogging. My husband and I were fascinated but eventually, turned off (it might have been that blog where he ranted about what miserable parents we were - which made us feel kind of badly until we clicked on several other teenage blogs and found similar themes. This is not to say we weren't bad parents but apparently, we were hardly alone in reach new depths of parental tyranny.). But I digress.
Sun blogs are three years old today. If you look at the thousands of people who have blogged on our site, that's roughly 9,000 years in blogger time (3 years times conservatively 3,000 people). I joined a year ago, and have not regretted a minute of participation. All that experience, all that knowledge, all those great personalities sharing ideas and talking...how cool is that?
I've "met" people I never would have had the opportunity to talk with. I've read about products and processes, insights and ideas that have made me smarter and more knowledgeable. I've shared family moments and work moments, and have become a member of a much broader community.
Bloggers create a community of ideas. We're judged by the quality of our thinking and the clarity of our writing. We join our Sun community with that of the world at large. And I believe in my heart that we are all better for it.
Happy birthday, everyone!
