No Title. Must Go to Bed.
Blogging stresses me out. I mean, the writing and posting is fun, and I enjoy it. It does stress me out though. It is funny that I feel this pressure from no one to post something. Here I am at 11 pm, writing a post because nobody told me it has been too long.
What stresses me out even more than posting on my blog, is checking on others' blogs. Lots of people have blogs. Lots of people I know and like have blogs. More people I know and like have blogs than I have time to read. When blogs didn't exist a few years ago, you might run into an old high school friend that you hadn't seen since high school, and you'd talk and catch up. Now, if you run into an old high school friend, you likely know where they live and all of their children's names. And if you don't, you might feel bad that you're not caught up on their blog enough to talk about their latest family vacation.
So I sort of stopped spending a lot of time reading blogs. Not because I don't enjoy them, I do. But--which of 100 blogs should I read? It is overwhelming I swear.
So I joined Facebook instead. I hear it doesn't waste anyone's time at all. Actually I didn't really know I signed up--I was trying to RSVP for an event on someone's facebook page, and by the end, I had a profile. Then I realized I had a profile and stayed on step one--not daring to go farther. I still haven't. I've had a few friend requests though (go ahead and call me a braggart), and I can already tell--the stress is building: too many walls to write on! Help!!
Love, your dear friend (who loves you regardless if I ever get to your blog and leave a comment),
