I think it’s acceptable for me to say that whoever doesn’t read my blog clearly doesn’t care about me at all. People all around me go on facebook for hours everyday, so they clearly have the time to type in my URL in their web browser and look at a sentence or two from the most recent post. This is aside from commenting. I don’t think it’s unreasonable for me to say that anyone who wants to know what’s going on in my life should have read my blog. It’s not like i’m asking that you read every single post in it. This is actually making it easier for you to know about what’s going on in my life, so why on earth would you skip it? Reading my blog can tell you exactly what i’m thinking about before I even tell you. That’s how useful it can be for you.
There’s so much dead air in conversations that I have with people. That’s the perfect time for them to bring up my blog and ask me about the post that they read. I’m glad to tell you about it so that you don’t have to read the entire entry. But do they? No they never do!!
I’m sure most of you realise by now that i’m talking about my family. Who is most of you anyway? Who am I talking to? Cause clearly no one ever reads this blog, you can clearly see how evident it is from the number of comments.
Is it still irrational for me to hate facebook? Mom? I know that I sound crazy for wanting this kind of attention, but it’s only from the people who supposedly care so much about me. My goodness, on facebook your kids can easily conceal something from being viewable by your account. It’s that easy. But my blog that’s open to everyone on the planet who knows the URL, that’s the one you don’t want to visit? It’s just typing in a URL and reading a few sentences. Reading. Once upon a time people would read books, and then people read articles online, and now people just poke each other on facebook and play angry birds. This really isn’t that new and complicated.
Not only am I hearing my thoughts, i’m reading them, and I know how they sound. This is not the kind of person that I wanted to be. And I never expected for these people to not read my blog!
