Community is a great word as it implies getting together and building. Not necessarily building as in the hammer and nails sort - but a bonding as in building relationships... and yes maybe building a refreshment stand in the local park while you're at it.

We want to build that bond and that community with our readers - we seek out our common characteristics and interests in the words we share with others.

Most communities are organized and governed by elected and/or hired community members. A community is fueled by it's own miniature government. A Homeowner's Association has rules and regulations one must follow when they purchase a home with in a specific neighborhood. If you do not follow the rules you are either warned or fined.

A neighborhood is one form of a community.
