In reply to A Triumph for Blogging by Wouter Groeneveld

I recognise what you write very much. Blogging for me is about having distributed conversations, and starting my blog all those years ago caused a sort of Cambrian explosion in the interaction I had around the world, which led to conferences, meet-ups, shifting interests, Reboot, and my wife’s and my spread out circle of friends, unconferences for our birthdays, and ultimately also to the type of work I’ve been doing for the past 15 years. It’s not that it automatically happened or followed from blogging, but blogging has turned out to be the loom with which a lot of the fabric of my life has been (inter)woven. Thank you for expressing how that worked similarly for you the past years, and happy to hear my blog played a role in that.

Since taking blogging a bit more serious a few years ago, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some truly wonderful people. This is a short ode to blogging….
