The best thing about blogging

I’ve been so jammed with projects the past few days (yes, even through the weekend), I haven’t done my usual ego roundup checks (don’t tell me you don’t have a Google alert set up for your name). So I’ve been remiss in not saying a public thank you for the kind things Kate O’Neill and Dave Delaney said on their blogs last Wednesday.

And since I’m shamelessly pointing to people who have said nice things related to me, I’ll point also to a recent post “My buddy Dave,” Dave Winer, wrote. (To my geek-free friends reading this on Facebook, even if you’ve never heard of Dave, you have come in contact with many things he’s pioneered.)

No doubt: the best thing about blogging for me has been the friendships I’ve made through it.

Everything else is secondary.
