Blogs and Reality TV

Observing behaviour.


A work in progress... blogger interrupted...

Though we discuss our personal issues, sins and failings, achievements, etc., publicly, online and in other people's comboxes, or in an online 'magazine. or e-book, it's just "our" version of things, isn't it...  Not unlike Reality TV, it's played out with an audience in mind.  And like Reality TV insta-stars, some get to be minor-celebrities. 

Just a thought...

    A Reality TV show is what you get when you're really famous. We plebes have to settle for the "lesser" medium that is blogs. =P

    By the way, Terry, just this evening I had the strangest thought that you believed I was upset with you because I haven't been commenting here lately. It was probably just my natural paranoia, but in case I was actually being psychic, I want you to know that that is not the case. I still think that you're my long-lost twin brother and that we're still supposed to race to Witch Mountain together to get back to our home planet. But I've just started a new job and have less time to whisper such sweet nothings in your combox. Be grateful for small blessings. ;-)

  2. I did not think you were mad at me or avoiding me - I know we are united in spirit. I really do.
