It’s the 9th Anniversary of Life,forinstance!

On November 1, 2010, I published the first post at LFI, “What do you think about life?”  It’s so hard to believe that this blog has been around for nine years now.

The blog was designed to be a place where we could gather to talk about the important issues we all face in life.  In the heydey of the blogosphere, people came from all over the world to get into the conversation – and oh what conversations they were!

I miss those days. I know; you miss those lively, blog-hopping days too.

Today at, Life, for instance, I write nearly exclusively about community.  I have you to thank for helping me to shape my mission to spread community consciousness around the globe.  It all started here, with conversations about life, on the LFI porch.

As anyone who knows me will attest, I have been obsessed with community building for many years.  But it was only when I researched and wrote a book to outline the community-building process that I really came to understand what community is, how it grows, and how one can facilitate the process.

Though I miss those days when I was blog hopping from dawn till dark, it’s quieter on the porch now.  However, this affirms the strong feeling I have had from the day I published my book that I need to work offline, for a time, in my hometown.  That’s where I’m building the foundation for Kalliergo.

It’s so nice to sit with you on the porch today!  Tell me; what do you think about life today?
