A SHOT IN THE DARK: my good friend bryan and i have had various conversations about the nature of blogs (in fact there has been discussion on his blog about this very thing). they are strange things, are they not? first of all, what are they? mine is a personal space, a creative outlet to vent thoughts, ideas, artwork, photos. basically, it's a journal/ scrapbook/ photoalbum. the question is, why make it public? i've been thinking about this a lot because my site meter at the bottom of the page tells me that aproximately 20 people visit my blog every day, yet only 1 person makes a comment every other day. who are you? why do you visit? what is so interesting? are you uplifted or disapointed when you leave? do you come because you know me and do you know me better when you link off? is your thought stimulated or do you quickly scan the site? perhaps the whole reason i blog is my innate desire to be known- my hunger for relationality. perhaps each post is a shot into the dark void, hoping someone, somewhere, out there will hear me and perhaps, perhaps understand me better, and engage. this is indeed my greatest need... and yours. you come to know, do you not? would you not also be known in return?
thanks for visiting.
