    Too bad, as you are one member I respect quite a lot. Such is life.

    That's what prompted the line of thought I was like "Hey, I barely know pippi, who is now posting in my blog, but doesn't seem comfortable, which means I'll probably never get to know them!"

    Made me realise that there is a double edged sword to my way, heh.

    That's why I like people's blogs because they talk about what's on their mind without a specific topic. The focus is on them. I've noticed many people do the 'drive by' posting on threads in the forum so I find it hard to get to know people in the threads. Often people are offering advice or playing devil's advocate as well so it's hard to get a good read on them in the threads.
    Yup... Although my blog is a bit more random and less personal, heh But in that sense, I guess I kind of mix things up. The "personal" stuff that I post in other blogs (finances most notably, but whatever) is always at a distance. I tend to post in threads fairly position-atheist. However, in my blog, I'm a lot more open about how I feel or the stance I tend to take (when I know it).

    A lot of the "reaching out" is actually in commonality of belief, and on specific topics, I try to avoid doing that... Hmm, interesting, something I hadn't thought of before.

    Best I don't do it then, lest I lose it!

    (I keep my distance in the public threads on a specific topic. It's not universal - I talk to members off the board/etc. for example!)

    Remember that time I read a post of yours where you were talking about "dressing up" ? And you listed some feminine articles of clothing you enjoyed. What you meant was that you enjoyed seeing them on your wife, but I had misunderstood and then wondered if you were a woman. I had "always thought you were a guy", I posted. You replied and chuckled, telling me that you were, in fact, a guy.

    During that brief time I thought you were a woman, I actually even liked you more ! So much for me not liking women with strong personalities.

    It's a fair request, but your approach is pretty roundabout. Why not try private messaging those members to continue a conversation from the forum, or ask a polite question about a disclosure? People can be surprisingly receptive when approached.

    Agreed. I have basically been taking a "do both of these" approach. So, with members who I already know I enjoy, I gradually get around to sending them PM's or other messages. I'm assuming that there are people who I am not yet familiar with, who I may be missing out on.

    I do not have a blog. I only read blogs of people I befriended, even then sporadically.

    I don't post in or read blogs...I guess the format of them isn't really conducive to me being able to provide any input, and rarely will I ever see anything that holds my interest. I also have no inclination to have one myself; I have a hard enough time thinking of what to say as it is, and putting myself in a situation where I would be relied on to be the [for all intents and purposes] sole provider of topics and information would make it much more difficult.
