Tech Cocktail Chicago 8

I'm pretty excited about going to the Tech Cocktail Chicago 8 event this evening. I'm just so curious as to what kind of exciting tech people/companies are here in Chicago!

Where is the Blogger Community?

I recently started a new blog over at Vox.com after my older sister recommended me the site after a friend of hers recommended it to her. It's a social blogging website that emphasizes on the concept of a neighborhood; essentially socializing with other people with common interests, etc.

Anyway, I still really like Blogger, but where the heck is the community? I'm sure I can search for it through Google, but can't there be some kind of interface that can help users find each other?

I am quite disappointed. Blogger is simple, straightforward, and customizable, but it lacks web 2.0's social aspect. It's just a blogging service. I have no plans to stop blogging here, but Vox does look interesting...

Anyway, here is the address to my Vox blog:

sunpech.vox.com

Vox is created by Six Apart (also the creators of MoveableType, TypePad, and HuffingtonPost). Yes, that is quite the resume.
