Calling Light Bloggers

I had this idea I thought I'd share. Do you who blog ever feel like it's a little bit solitary? I know I do. Sometimes I wish I had a more interactive experience in the blogosphere. I see others sharing a sense of community, and occasionally I feel left out; and I don't have time, with homeschooling, a new baby, and a hubbie working two jobs, to chase after all the blogs I enjoy.

What I was thinking is that I'd like to start a group venture, an email group for a few bloggers who would like to share posts and discuss them, and whoever else wants to follow those blogs. The blog posts of maybe three to five bloggers would automatically post to the email group, and would be immediately available for discussion, not just "comments."

If you might be interested in such a group, please let me know. What I'm looking for is bloggers who do not post heavily... blogs that average less than one post a day. The blogs should also have the sort of posts that read well in text only, though that only needs to apply to the majority of posts. It's a chance, basically, for people who are not "big" bloggers to get their posts read.

As for non bloggers, yes, I would like them too. It takes more than just bloggers to keep a discussion group alive. Anyone who is interested in this, please contact me at carmelsundae (at) gmail (dot) com. I really hope this idea can take off!
