So, today on Twitter someone was complaining about people who blog to make friends and get free stuff. While I can agree that no one should be blogging in an attempt to get merchandise for free in exchange for giving the company publicity, I don’t see what’s so wrong with making friends. I mean yes you write because you love it, because you have something to say, or because it’s your job; but why is it so wrong to hope that someone will read what you wrote and come to like what you represent enough to want to get to know you better? Am I supposed to be sitting here in an aloof attempt to thrust my so called knowledge on masses of people as though I were in an ivory tower? That seems a little pretentious, if you ask me. I certainly wouldn’t say that anyone should write anything in an attempt to gain notoriety, but sharing a part of yourself with others isn’t exactly nefarious. So if I share something here, and it touches you, and you want to share in return I consider that success. Anyway, that’s really all I have to say on the matter. I hope you’re having a great evening. Rest well.
