So, when you post a blog, do you expect others to check on it every so often, or are you really doing it for yourself? I truly think that my life is pretty boring and that not too many people would be interested in reading about it…but then again, as an “unedited” journal, I think people *WOULD* be interested in reading about my thoughts. Eh, I’ll ease you into that-I don’t want you to get scared off too fast.
Then I wonder about the other people out there like me who prefer to keep their lives pretty private. Why are they (and why am I) blogging?
I think there are a couple reasons really. I think its probably something similar to the whole ‘reality tv’ phenomenon-we all love being voyeurs. That good old ‘bug on the wall’ feeling really makes ya feel like you’re ‘in-the-know’. Its only fair to share if someone else is, right?
Or maybe its the fact that some of us are searching for something more than just ourselves-wondering how it is that we are all connected in the web of life, yet sometimes feel so far removed from people. Dare I say that the internet actually shields us from relationships? Keeps us aloof, or even allows us to be just a little less polite than we usually are? Yet, I digress (imagine that).
Maybe it really is as simple as this: we all want to be accepted and know that someone out there really cares about the boring daily grind of our lives? So that when we get a little lonely, we can come here and see who, if anyone, left us a comment?
Ok, I’m done for now…
