Give me one good reason…Posted: April 7, 2011
Hopefully, this will be the most narcissistic thing I ever write.
I need feedback. Why, you ask? Because I hate feeling like I’m trying to speak to a room full of people while they’re all paying attention to something else. Sure, I may not have the most important thing in the world to say. I’ll still try to make what I’m saying interesting, and, if you’d just give me a chance, you may hear something new or different or funny.
Lately, I’ve felt as though this blog doesn’t matter. It’s no secret that I miss the old days of blogging– when the comments went on for days and people interacted with one another and became friends over blogs. I loved the reactions my blogs invoked, and reacting to the blogs I read. I miss reading all the day-to-day ramblings of people whom I only knew through a computer screen.
I hate that I need justification for writing here. I insist that I write for me and no one else. But when it seems like no one is paying attention, what’s the point?
I’m ready to throw in the towel. I’ve realized that this doesn’t matter. However, knowing that I lurk on quite a few blogs, I’m hoping that you can come up with a reason why I should keep blogging. Right now, I can’t think of any.
I have so many great aspirations for this blog– I’ve even been thinking about what kind of blogs I’d like to write, and considering making a schedule instead of posting so sporadically. But when it feels like I’m being ignored, I just don’t see the point.
I really, really hope this is the most narcissistic thing that ever comes from my fingertips…
I just want to know that I’m not putting myself out there without a purpose.
