When I first started blogging in 2006 and 2007 a small community of Alaska bloggers found each other and linked to each other. We had relatively small audiences and we checked each others blogs regularly. Many of them have dropped by the wayside, and just the other day I was thinking how much more community we had back then.
Well, I just learned that Tea N. Crumpet is returning at Token Liberal. Back then she basically had a mommy blog and blogged about, mostly, the joys and unjoys of raising her nine kids. She described herself as living north of Chicago, but soon the stories she wrote seemed more Ancchorage than Chicago until I finally emailed to ask why. Her reply was that Alaska is north of Chicago. In those days we all played with versions of anonymity because we didn't know what we were going to say and how this would all play out. Tea N. Crumpet's family played a big role in her blog and she wanted her location vague.
So I'm pleased to put her new blog onto my blogroll. We'll see how it evolves, but I expect it will be well written and interesting. Check it out.
