I've read a few posts and had friends say, "Why should I care about a blog my friend writes?"
And sure, while a lot of bloggers use their blog as simply an online journal, I think that's exactly the point.
If you care about someone, you may want to peer inside their world and see what they are eating for breakfast or what's on their mind.
Ok, maybe not the breakfast part but I'd curious about what my friends are up to!
I mean, if no one cared, well, would facebook be so popular? And twitter? And those facebook status update / what's on your mind things?
Sure, there are probably only a handful of people in our lives that we want to follow on a regular basis.
Let's face it. If it's one thing that I've learned from facebook lately it's that rock stars lives are and can be just as dull as ours.
We assume everyone is up to fascinating things - yet facebook brings everyone "down" to the same level as that CEO of that company or your idol may indeed just be eating oatmeal for breakfast and watching TV at night. Humph.
Anyhow, I don't expect a casual friend to care about my blog. Blog reading and writing isn't for everyone.
I guess I'm just blessed to have more free time than most of my friends who work 9-5 jobs. Ah, the benefits of being self-employed.
And I also love writing.
And reading my friend's blogs.
In fact, I wish more of my friends had blogs.
So if you don't care what I'm up to, don't read this.
We probably aren't that good friends anyway ;)
