Blogging for Attention
A dear friend of mine accused me of blogging for attention. Now because I am a fair man I won’t point out that they also have a blog, so maybe we both want attention.
The reality is that if you establish a blog you are offering yourself to the world, just ask Pandora. You cannot expect to engage in blogging without gaining a little attention from somewhere.
Now the reality is that I blog in part because I do want the attention. I enjoy the positive feedback, so if I am guilty of enjoying being stroked, so be it. I accept it and it doesn’t bother me.
I still blog because I want to, because this is still the arena in which I air out my thoughts about myself and my place in the world. It is where I have already learned so many things about myself and met some amazing people. There are some incredible blogs out there written by people who fascinate me and some that are junk.
But isn’t that life, some people/things are interesting and others are just dreadfully boring.
Just added more songs to iTunes from my pre-existing collection:
Against the Wind, Like a Rock, Old Time Rock and Roll, Hollywood Nights and We’ve got Tonight by Bob Seeger.
And for what it is worth, I did sing along to Old Time Rock And Roll, sans Ray-Bans and underwear. 😉
