This is the comment I left over at Blog(a)gory:
When I started reading blogs I didn't have a profile & was commenting under anonymous. I didn't think that was fair to bloggers. They may be baring their souls to me & they didn't even know from one anonymous to another who I was. So I decided to create a pseudonym/profile. Once I got that far it was a small just to create my own blog. It has improved my English writing skills. But what has kept me going is the community that I have become part of. I have met every single blogger in my "Local Kansas City Area Bloggers". We have been gathering usually about once a month since April 17th 2007. You are welcome to join us.
Why do you?
