Dancing... I Mean, Blogging with Myself...

Sometimes blogging feels like you are talking to yourself. It is easy to forget that a blog is posted for (usually) the world to see. Many times we focus so much on what we are saying, we neglect the point of the 21st century blog - collaboration.

We teach our kids about digital footprints, that while a blog is like a journal, it is also a forum for discussion and is open to that discussion for years to come.  But it is easy to view a blog as one way communication, especially when you only have one follower (Shout out to my Jess!) or when you get wrapped in what you as a blogger are saying.

So tonight I pose two questions:

1.  IS anyone out there?
2.  If you are blogging, who are you blogging for?
