Blogging is an interesting hobby. I can’t really remember how I got into it other than one day saying let there be blog. It took a while to find my stride but eventually I did. One thing I never planned on was making friends; that just sort of happened. The number of people you interact with increases the longer you’re in the mix and the more you expand your writing, reading, and linking. I’ve met a handful of people who now matter to me; that I converse with outside of blogging about unrelated things.
As in life outside the construct of blogs, my friends know that I will do anything for them, no questions asked. Their happiness is my happiness, their pain is my pain.
So this hurts.
