Asteroidea questions for the ESIs

Over at Asteroidea Press, Megan and Coyote are having an interesting discussion about blogging. Megan asks:

How blogging fits into my writing; how it's changed me; and the nature of the blogging community are all things that are currently vexing me. Maybe you ESIs need to have a meeting and come up with something entertaining to counterpoint my eventual blather.

After some blather from Coyote in which he disavows knowledge of a blogging community, (seriously, he does) Megan asks more questions:

Were all you ESIs friends before the blog started? Are you better friends now? Different friends? Think of new live relationships, new e-relationships, or old acquaintances that have developed into something different because we're all putting our words out there. That's community, no?

If I was engaged in an intimacy challenge, I might try to answer these questions.

p.s. Megan also did an excellent job of describing a phenomenon she dubbed "blog-brain".

p.p.s. Before I get a citation, I want the Content Review Task Force to know that I realize I am in flagrant violation of Guideline A(4). With Aggie on her intimacy challenge, Coyote off chatting up the cuties, and everybody else apparently too busy shagging to post, it's left to me.

I love Megan and would like her to join the ESIs. Perhaps we need to have an emergency meeting to discuss this further.
Did Megan coin the term ~blog brain~? Brilliant.
Yes, those questions are very interesting for me right now.

Holy &^%*$! Aggie!!! Do you realize that not only have you possibly bridged the "intimacy gap" in your life, by suggesting you "love" Megan, but that you have also possibly invited a total stranger (ie, Megan) to love you back? Cool...or what? You are, like, the MOST intimate person I know!
