Blogs are justanother way to share all the great things, not so great things andjust a part of who we are. An outlet if you will. The blogispherecommunity is all connect and we make contacts in many ways.Through posts, through twitter conversations, through smaller nitcommunitys, live web casts, and through conferences that we metin person.
