Electronic Wallflower [Jul. 12th, 2004|06:56 am]

I love when people read my blog or visit my website. It's just that little bit of validation and attention I obviously so desperately need. I'm always especially delighted when someone I don't already know stumbles across my cyberspace.

So, why am I so timid when it comes to letting other people know I've read their blog? I've discovered several very interesting journals lately and yet just can't bring myself to leave a comment.

It's like I'm back in elementary school, forced to bring my lunch from home every day because I'm too shy to go through the lunch line and tell the cafeteria ladies what I want.

We Are The Martians...

Communication. Connection. Kind of like finding a perrenial skip on an Akashic Record. (LP) Or re-reading for the nth time, "The Lathe of Heaven", by Ursula K. Le Guin.

One of the nice things about lurking through the blogs is you can go back several posts and see how the "writer" has grown (or not) over time. This is a great way to decide who'd be a good "blog buddy" and who'd try and camp out in your virtual front lawn.

You can also see responders and how welcome they are in the blog. The responders may be other "enlightened" bloggers who are honest, "fans" who do nothing but sing praises, or haters who just bring drama (wanted or unwanted).

That being said... Don't be too timid. Remember you're not the only one posting for validation and attention (and you're not the only Leo {grin} ).

Do what you can to spread that warm fuzzy around.

All those voices in my head

I relate completely. However according to the expert Michael, the only way to attract fans is to branch out and interact with others. I probably need to work harder because I am tiring of talking to myself.
