Most of the times memes are what saves me from not having anything to write… actually I do not write much because I still think I stink at it. But I am practicing here and there. Well a meme yesterday pissed me off. I have beef with this meme.
At first it start much like any other meme. But then it starts giving a tone to things that makes bloggers seem like self centered people. Are bloggers narcisitic… not necesarily. I think it is human to crave attention and empathy from others, I do not find blogging to be unhealty or selfish. I think it is something that people looking at it from the outside do not understand. Much like motorcycle riding, unless you have experienced it, I think you should have no opinion on the matter.
Why is it that non bloggers think that we as a group are just a bunch of people with either too much time on our hands or too self involved. That gets me into the obvious questions. Why do I blog then… and I think mostly because I want record of where I am at in life right now. Is a journal to me in many ways. But beyond that there are many other reasons that I did not even knew about. Like meeting some great people that have sage advice.
So I have beef with this sneaky meme… am I over reacting?
