I’ve met a lot of good folks who follow this blog now via the WordPress.com Off Topic forums. Unfortunately WordPress has done away with that forum, as well as the showcase one.
I wanted to let you know, about another site that I’m running with a friend of mine that is specifically for bloggers to come to and network with one another. It’s still kind of in Beta, but the forums work, and I’d be glad to pick up where WordPress left off…
