This weekend was the weirdgirl blog's seventh anniversary!  It's been a long, winding, sometimes strange road.  I think we (myself included) mistake these online spaces as static.  I mean, they are just a pixellated frame, pretty unchanging except for the occasional new banner or background.  And by extension it can look like our lives are static as well.  We scramble for content, get blocked and unblocked, talk about the same things over and over.  But they are windows (sometimes with half drawn curtains, sometimes open doors).  People say community is the biggest contribution of blogs, but I think the biggest impact is perception.  In a million major and minor ways, personal and at large in the internet, blogs change perception.  And what we do with that is how we change.

Anyhow, thank you for sharing these glimpses with me.
