Hello to all those who may read this in the course of International Comment Leaving Week (March 21-28). I began this blog in November 2010 as a way of coping with the loss of an online friend which occurred three years earlier, in April 2007. Hard to believe that it’s now coming up on five years since Chris passed away, but I continue to blog here in the hope that I can offer support to others who are going through the same experience of grieving the death of online friends. I primarily chronicle my experience of grief, but in the mix there is poetry and articles dedicated to helping others memorialize their online friends. My story begins here. I’m also hoping to get a few more voices chiming in on the discussion about what we can learn from online friendships.
Hoping to get to know you better during ICLW,
