Helge: Working alone with any business or social activity can be lonely. Imagine how hard it has been to write books, poems or novels in the past. Blogging is a new thing and involves a much broader layer of the society.

Saying the Internet’s big is a Rushmore of understatement. Our computers are planets, the Internet a galaxy.

Blogopolis bursts with neighborhood upon neighborhood, brimming with amazing people. Some we meet while a guest at their blogs, while reading their words and observe perspective. Some we meet below the belt of our own blog, bantering among the comments. Others send us an email; a more private venue to foster a friendship.

Helge: How to find the friends and supporters on Internet can be just as difficult as in real life.
