While I cannot write for other Authors who have contributed to the blawg, personally I enjoyed the outlet: it was nice to have a place I could post my thoughts and work on my writing. Professionally, I found value in investigating topics that interested me: collecting information and presenting it in a way that I thought was both interesting and informative.

And I am grateful for the folks who logged-in to watch updated posts and discussion. Hopefully you enjoyed the chatter while it was running.
