But, at that time, being mentioned in somebody else’s journal was juicy…it was gossip…a secret look into the crazy mind of another. How mortified would you be if everybody knew what you were thinking and (EGAD) who you accttuuaalllyy had a c-r-u-s-h on?
Nowadays however, we are all encouraged to show our uniqueness. The irony being, is that the number of online blogs is estimated at around 181 million unique sites. That is 181 million very un-unique people blabbing about their likes, dislikes, days and hobbies. Me included of course.
I personally find blog pushers very annoying. They post it on Facebook, they post it on LinkedIn, they post it at the bottom of their emails; they encourage you to read it on twitter. Who doesn’t have something better to do than read somebody else’s thoughts? C’mon.
Well, I guess my saving grace is only a a handful of my loved ones even know this exists. Maybe they read it because they can relate, maybe they read it because they are bored, maybe it’s because they love and support me, or maybe, just maybe they read it to see if they are mentioned.
Love you ladies….oh, and man.
