Sometimes I wonder what all my WordPress buddies get up to when they’re not here blogging their hearts out.
Make no mistake, I enjoy reading a majority of peoples work. I just tend to wonder how everyone’s lives are outside of everything they write.
We only get snippets/vignettes of everything. You know, mostly the juicy parts.
Alfred Hitchcock says “What is drama, but life with all the dull bits cut out”
And I agree. If we wrote a detailed outline that includes all the monotony we endure it would hardly be an interesting read.
It’s not a curiosity I entertain often, after all, I’m hardly the most open person around here.
This question popped into my head when I was reminiscing over old friendships that fizzled out during my first years here on WordPress. So many people I knew are just… gone. Others showed up and vanished within the space of a year.
Keeping a blog alive is hard work — I like to believe in many ways you have to enjoy writing to help with this. Either that, or you use your blog to explore creative expression and not much else.
These were some of my shower thoughts these last few days. Have you experienced something similar or are all your buddies present and accounted for?
