Noise in the Forest
There is a familiar question/saying about a tree falling the the forest. If no one is there to hear it, does it make noise?
The same question can be posed about a blog. Does it exist, if no one reads it? Of course, we all know that a blog--like a memo in a large organization--is written for the writer, not the reader. If anyone reads it (blog or memo), reactions range from disinterest, anger, boredom, amusement, etc.
Do not despair! I am both amused and entertained. I plan on recommending to my slightly deranged (Agent Orange?) brother-in-law. The only reservation is that he will probably want you to read his blog.
I love reading blogs...both the type that inform/entertain me, and the ones that get me all worked up by their navel-gazing opinionated diatribes. Am hoping yours will be some of both. I would love to blog and spew my voice into the world, except...I don't want anyone I know to read it. And people I don't know would hardly be interested. Let me know how your self-esteem does after a few months of blogging. Cheers.
