Has Reading Blogs Changed Your Life?

Has reading a blog or blogs -- not necessarily this one, of course -- changed your life in a material way? Has it led you to change professions, go to a particular school, or study some field rather than another? Has it led you, directly or indirectly, to meet your new spouse? Has it led you to lose your old spouse?

If so, tell us your story, whether including identifying details or omitting them. Note that I'm looking for whether reading blogs has changed your life, not whether writing your own blog has changed your life.
