Do you think it is ego-centric for someone to like the idea that strangers out in cyberspace are interested in reading your thoughts via a blog?
If so, I guess I'm ego-centric.
But I really don't think so.
I think the majority of people crave human connections. We crave the feeling of being accepted and belonging. No one wants to have their life go un-noticed. And a blog can fulfill that need beautifully. It enables people to be brutally honest. To be themselves. To develop different parts of their character and explore different points of view and ideas.
Conversely, I like thinking that there are people out there who get excited to see that I've made a comment. That I'm reading and thinking about them.
It is interesting to me that in a society where we are becoming more and more dependent on technology that we have morphed this once sterile, impersonal entity (the internet) into something that people use to make real connections. To experience real emotion. And, in some instances, to become real friends.
I just think that is cool.
PS I also think it is weird that the spell checker built into blogger doesn't recognize "blog" as a word.
