I blog about stuff. That is pretty much it. I’m not a great writer or a deep thinker.
I am a Computer Geek
who likes to write on his blog … i dont expect to make a change to the world through any of my wirtings its basically and outlet for me to vent, share, and enjoy memories of my life …
My journal here is a way of communicating, which is one of the most powerful drives humans possess. I have thought long and hard about this. But I don’t believe that blogging, my kind of blogging anyway, is about narcissism. I do not write because I think that I am such a fascinating and wonderful person that I owe it to the world to share my every thought, emotion, and daily event. For me it is a social past time. I do have actual, “real-life” friends. So why should I feel the need for “virtual” friends and acquaintances? the simple answer is that, it is lonely being at home alone.
The complicated answer is that technology has brought us social isolation. Cell phones, email, and the internet enable us to work and carry on with the business of life without the need for face to face, human contact. This desire to reach out and connect with others is inherent in human-nature. To me, that is what blogging is all about. If blogging is by definition narcissistic, then so are all friendships and relationships; that I refuse to believe.
