this blog has the bumby seal of approval*
One of the things I enjoy about blogging, is keeping up with friends, old and new. (Old friends as in friends I've known for a long time...not OLD friends...but them too.) I love getting the chance to glimpse into their lives and I love being able to express myself to them and the web that is world-wide. Sometimes I wonder if this self-indulgent expression is too self-indulgent...then I remember that it is okay to be self-indulgent. Yes it is.
Many years ago, I just couldn't understand why people do this blogging thing, but having always been interested in stories of "everyday people" in memoirs, short stories and documentaries. I realized that reading blogs was an additional opportunity to engage with other everyday people.
Do most people care about what I write about? No, of course not. But for the few that I connect with online, it is worth the online time in the blog-o-sphere. I know I have readers, for people comment on here and on FB, but I also know I have lurkers (hi lurkers *waves enthusiastically*) and every now and then, a lurker will make their presence known which adds to my online connections.
*this blog may or may not truly have the Bumby Seal of Approval. I may or may not have made an assumption of this honor. I do, however, encourage you all to keep up with his tales, tall and otherwise.
