blogging can be kinda, sorta, silly sometimes. in some ways, it's entirely narcissistic.
we sit in our homes, offices, parks, coffee shops, libraries and write about our days, our hopes, our fears, our faves, our ideas…
and then, we cross our fingers that someone else reads our words…
ah, well this is where narcissism turns into something else entirely. because yes, we're putting our lives on display (each and every day, every day, every day...confession: i love rhonj. love.) and though it's cathartic and fun for us, it's really about something else. it's about finding like people in the world and connecting.
it's the connections we make that are most exciting and motivating.
because it's true, I love it when people read and comment and follow along. but I love it JUST as much, if not more, when I find a fellow blogger that I connect with. It's incredibly amazing to relate to those you've never even met, those who live an entire world away or sometimes, if you're lucky, just a town over.
and the thing is, you'll never have that chance to connect to those around you if you don’t put yourself out there. it's scary, yes. it's intimidating, yes. it's uncomfortable, undoubtedly.
but it's worth it.
and so, in this spirit, I'm putting it out there and announcing my very first swapportunity!
if anyone is interested in swapping buttons with me, myself and I, please let me know and we'll get this thang going!
p.s. yes, maybe i got this word from watching too much tv with this commercial playing...creativity runs rampant in my house. so does plagiarism.
