Evan makes some excellent points about the non-community of the blogging community and then reflects some more after seeing some thoughtful feedback on her posts. I often feel the same way when I lose sight of the reasons I wanted to write online in the first place (record, reflect, synthesize).

There's something just personal enough about blogging to give you fleeting tastes of friendship, comraderie and community. It's great if some people are able to convert those connections into "real" friendships and a true sense of community, but I don't think that will be the standard experience for most of us.
