Blabbb: Origins

September 8, 2011

In addition to Wink and fb4h, want to know the motivation for this Blabbb blog?

Here are two pre-Blabbb pieces by Blabbber Lee Porter that sparked the idea for a blog which communicates on the Internet about communicating on the Internet:

Click here for an essay from the website WTF Is Up With My Love Life?!, entitled Techno-Romance: WTF? … FTW!

Click here for a blog piece about meeting people in person first before linking up on the Internet, entitled The (Real) Social Network.

So now you know what “sparked the Blabbb” (blog). What do “you” (not “u”) think, Blabbbers? 😉
