Two days ago I received a parcel from the US. A book! A present! And best of all, it comes from one of the people listed in my blogroll… I’m so grateful to her.
For a long time I was slightly doubtful of the relationships we develop in this strange, invisible world of blogs. How can we truly care for people we’ve never met (maybe won’t ever meet?) and don’t even know the appearance, occupation or even real name? We say “we can’t judge a book by its cover”, but isn’t it what we all do in the real world? I had the first real hint that I was wrong when I was overwhelmed by emotion after reading your kind messages after Baby Smithereens’ birth. And once again, two days ago, when the book was in my hands, the blog-world didn’t seem virtual anymore and the friendships we develop through this new media proved as valuable as the other ones. Thanks again!
