The Seattle Garden Bloogers Fling ended like they all do. Business cards are exchanged. Open arms lead to heartfelt hugs. We tell each other how great it was seeing you again.

But best of all, I don't have to say goodbye.

Not only do I not have to say it, more likely than not, it just wouldn't make much sense.

We're all garden bloggers. All gardeners. All computer competent. And all enjoy talking about it.

Posting keeps us connected.

Comments remind us that someone will talk back.

And it happens more than once a year.
