well i have had a couple ideas for blogs but no pictures to go with them, we have not been able to get our act together and get something set up to transfer new pics onto this computer. i think that will be today's project.
just read a friend's blog that was talking a bit about how narcissistic fb is and often blogs are like christmas letters, (she was not saying that is her view point, just that it was topic of conversation) which got ME thinking as well, but here is MY conclusion, and since your reading MY blog you must care what I think! lol if you don't then i recommend stopping at any point in this sentence and finding something different to do with your time! lol i think that is the point of facebook and blogging, it's to write down what is going on in your life so your friends and family can stay up on it, when they want to and if they want to. how stupid would it be for me to write what my friend is doing when you may not know my friend! and i would rather read what my friends are doing on their blogs when i have time and that way i am more likely to keep my opinions on what they are doing to myself, where if i was talking to them i may A) interrupt when i shouldn't B) give what my opinion is too quickly C) roll my eyes unconsciencely (is that a word?) so i mean really it is a way of saving friendships and hurt feelings if you think about it. lol and on facebook, if they are really annoying or too vulgur, i can delete or hide them and no big deal (except for the ones that don't get the hint and keep friend requesting you). so if you are a half empty kind of person, you could see all the faults in this new way of communication, or if you are a half full kind of person you can see all the benefits and put up with the negatives. i see it as a way to rekindle old friendships and not have to tell the same story 20 million times! i also see it as a journal of sorts. and you know what, really when we look back years from now, do we really want to reread and remember the bad stuff, or the christmas letters? i prefer christmas letters, that's what we should be concentrating on. the media offers us plenty of the negative, that's another reason why we did away with tv! and yes i do go on and on, you get only a fraction of what my mind puts me through, so be thankful! lol
and one more thing, if you read my blog, make a comment or two so i know your reading it, i thought only 2-3 people were reading it but found out last week two others were! lol it's nice to get feedback, don't be a blog stalker, let me know your there! lol be a "follower!" lol and one last thing, i think blogs and fb feed the nosy neighbor in us all, let's be honest.
