We read to know we are not alone. ~C. S. Lewis
It seems fitting that as I approach the one-year anniversary of this blog, I am reflecting on what it means to me. Yesterday, I thought about why I write here. Today, I share a few ways of interacting with the blog. Let me know if you have others.
1. Daily Meditation: Subscribe by e-mail and receive new posts in your inbox as a daily meditation. (OK, sometimes when I’m busy it’s every few days!)
2. Tiptoe Through the Tag Cloud: Click a term on the tag cloud to find postings on a particular topic.
3. Rockin’ Blogroll: Explore related blogs (also blogs I just like) by clicking on the links in the blogroll.

6. Express Yourself! Leave a comment, then subscribe to the comments for that post (click on the RSS 2.0 link), so you can see when others respond.
7. Digg It! Share the blog with others. Forward posts you particularly like or want to share. (I will be adding a badge for Digg as soon as I figure out how to do that.)
8. A Bundle of Bookmarks: Click to bookmark on your browser or on a social bookmarking site such as Delicious.
9. The Pop Top: Check out the most recently-viewed posts in the Top Posts box.
