Be a Villager

Don't you love the idea of a band of bloggers being "a village"? I do. After all, what makes a village a village? Just a bunch of people living in close proximity and sharing joys and sorrows - well, lives in general And caring about each other, practically if possible. (For the nitpickers, bloggers are "cyberly close" - in fact I very often interact with blog friends before I have had my first coffee or put my make up on. Which makes them very very close friends indeed) Anyway, the Robin's Perch girl - the one who sits mysteriously on her windowsill - has picked up on the Villagers idea on her post "Lent for Liam" (June 6th) and has taken it to a meaningful level. Shayne in her post "Follow Up" (June 6th) has joined her efforts and now many others are getting involved as well. Want to know more? Swing by their blogs to find out details and get involved with an adventure in cyber-community living. So often we wish we could help - today we can.

I loved it too!

So no we must be "villagers" as opposed to bloggers??

Makes you think doesn't it? How we are all meant to meet in cyberspace to really make an impact and help others. How the network just gradually grow...how we touch each others lives in a meaningful way. I LOVE IT!

Thanks for the "heads-up" Allie. How on earth did I miss all of this going on in my own "village"??
