Blogging is a great way to meet people and make friends. I am very happy to have met so many fine folks in our community who I would never have met without SoleraU. Blogging can be an excellent way to organize what interests you.
SoleraU is based on Blogger which is owned by Google. There are a lot of gadgets you can add to make your blog highly customized. SoleraU might look like an integrated application at first glance--it was designed that way. But in fact, it is composed of a number of separate blogs that are connected with "linked lists"--a pretty flexible arrangement.
