Man that was a blast. Sorry I haven't been back since the big Cyber Monday event. If you missed it, here's the roll of those I know who participated:

I think I've figured it out. While many on the people who posted I also know on that place called "Facebook", it just isn't the same. It's a different "voice" over there. I know my "voice" is different over here than over there. Even in the dark, super special corners where my mother isn't lurking.
"Scope" doesn't play as much on Facebook. Those are more "Eric's people". Writing over there, I have such a broad audience of people that I mostly used to sort of kind of know or are related to, so I have to be more guarded. Here? This is my house, not Zuck's. I have more freedom. I love what I call "the long form". Most every post I do has a picture or two. I've recently increase my default font size (due to my eyes getting older). Over there, you can't even BOLD that which needs bolding.
And I certainly can say that while I know some folks are still blogging and I appreciate it, it certainly was glad to hear some of those old voices again.
And now, a word from Blue Cross / Blue Shield of Illinois:
