Part IV: Appendix > Community


Community means shared interests. Bloggers tend to form pockets of interest on the web like it’s going out of style. The communities listed in Table A.3 can range from ultra simple (girls who blog) to more specific and wacky (Naked Bloggers), but they are still groups of bloggers who have found one another through some common interest.
