Even though I use the second person pronoun, I write more for me than for anyone else (sorry). As in, even if nobody read my posts, I’d still post and edit until I was happy with my own writing and the translation of feelings and abstract thoughts, too big to be contained, into symbols that can be understood on a screen.
However, I’ve come to realize that:
- I feel more comfortable sharing my blog with people who already have blogs. It’s a reciprical thing: show me yours, I’ll show you mine. It’s like gaining access to the quieter, pensive, honest, and sometimes hidden part of a person’s character. In this way, it’s easy to fall in love with people just a little bit through reading their minds.
- I feel more comfortable sharing my blog with people who don’t know me that well. And I’m trying to figure out why that is… Surely, it should be easier to show my blog to someone closer to me?
I don’t know.
