For me though there is more it is about conversation. It is about shared listening and shared though development. It is about developing a shared conversation. We all have friends we sit and talk with for hours about some topics we love to share, well those are the blogging buddies I want the rest well those are things that we should be going as part of the conversation not to make the conversation. Two great examples of this are http://www.chrisheuer.com/ and http://www.chrisbrogan.com/ They are both very good at connecting, networking and engaging. They get the benefits of having blogging buddies because they connect with lots of bloggers and it happens naturally. A large part of their success with doing this is by facilitating other to connect. So I am going to make a try here.
