RivkA from Coffee and Chemo has passed away. I only knew her from the blog -although I did meet her in person twice. The first time was at the Blogger’s convention last year, and the second time was at my niece’s wedding a few months ago. Needless to say I am saddened by her death.
Baila writes well about RivkA here. Baila describes a bit about these “weird” friendships that we bloggers have, and she hits the nail on the head. The people you know through blogging are not strangers, not acquaintances, but somehow good friends – in an unconventional sense. The sharing that people do with this tool makes connections that are hard to describe. We need to come up with another word for this relationship.
