Blog Thoughts (Part Two)

One of the intreresting things you learn from Powells Books - Ink Q & A Susan Orlean is this: "Share an interesting experience you've had with one of your readers.
Married him."

Given the anonymity that most bloggers have, and the distances separating us,not to mention the newness of blogging, I wonder how common this might be. I know that there are some husband/wife and boyfriend/girlfriend bloggers - not necessarily on the same blog - but to meet a reader and end up married to that person?

I'm sure someone will write a book or blog about the possibilities soon. But it does lead one to think about the nature of the connections we make with the people that choose to read our words daily (or weekly or occasionally).

More later.
