Conversations threads

Some times blog posts go out into the www ether and just sit there. You hardly know if someone has read them or not. The statistics don't always tell the whole story.

And then there are blog posts that generate conversation. Conversation that deepens the original writing. Conversation that weaves other thought threads together in a new tapestry, or new shades of light.

One of the best conversations I had online was over the course of a few days last year when I participated in the Love Affair With Books on the Joyful Jubilant Learning blog.

Yes, it is a mouthful and deliberately so. The folks that congregate there do LOVE books, and LOVE talking about books even more so.

Need an example?

Check out How to Read an Unfinished Book.

And if you really want, go back into the archives to find my favorite conversation on This is Your Brain on Music.

Oh, yes.
returns next month!


  1. Thank you for sharing our JJL ALAWB announcement Steve. It is a jewel for us, isn't it.

    And Steve, you are so great at being someone who truly engages with others within online conversations; you set such a great example for all of us, mahalo.

  2. Conversations are the food stuff for the good life. Your Ho'ohana Community provides such great sustenance.

    Mahalo, Rosa!
