So it was told to me by a certain someone, to remain unnamed, that another certain someone , who also will remain unnamed, said that I talk about myself alot....on a blog. Wait, did I just say "a" blog...I'm sorry, I meant "MY" blog. I was, at first, a little surprised. Then it went to irritation. Then it went to feeling bad about myself (obviously what the complainer was shooting for). Now it's just plain "I don't give a crap" and actually I have to say, it has definitely moved on to laughter. I think it's hilarious that someone is actually clicking on my blog link, reading it, and then getting off the blog to complain about me talking about myself ALOT. Last I checked, reading a blog is a "choice", not a demand. Seems to me there are some curious folks out there and they really want to see what's up with my life but then walk away and talk about me...for some reason, I'm kinda like Fly Paper to those kind of freakys. Don't get me wrong, I love it when people stop by, and really really love it when they comment. But I blog for one reason and one reason only...OUTLET! I think I got some things I need to get off my chest and instead of taking pencil to paper, I take fingers to keyboard. It's great therapy and if it makes people laugh in the process, then I feel like I'm helping make the world a happier place. Pure Narcissism at it's best, right???
A blog I like to read every so often is C Jane, and today I checked her blog and it was about someone leaving a comment on her blog about her being self-centered. I couldn't believe it when I read it because this comment about me being self-centered was just made a few days ago...weird timing on that. So I left her a comment and another fellow blogger, Nicole saw my comment and decided to write about being self-centered on her blog. She summed it up beautifully...she said:
"Bloggers are confident rather than self centered, and tend to be more of an extrovert in personality. they are social, outgoing, and for the most part articulate. I would guess that most have at least some education beyond high school and many have graduated college. They are probably verbal learners and not overly shy. In a nut shell they are confidant, empowered, and comfortable in life, and in who they are, and what they believe."
Oh and did I mention that she referenced MY blog, you can read about it HERE...wow, I'm famous...oh and by that last comment, obviously also Narcissistic.
