Promoting the blog.

24 Jan

Day three of the blog writing; I mean blogging. So far I’ve only sent this link to my husband, so the question is when do I send it out to others? I will probably start out in the comfort of friends, but at some point I would like to post this link  to my Facebook page and maybe even Twitter. Now, seeing as I only have ten Twitter followers, I’m not really worried about becoming a viral sensation, but eventually, if I’m lucky, someone may read my blog who doesn’t actually know me and that worries me a little. I mean, I can be a little sensitive, and if people read my blog, they can comment on it. Have you ever read internet comments? Online comments are the new bathroom stall posted for everyone to see. Some of the most vile things I have ever heard have in my life have been comments on a YouTube video. The ability to say whatever you want without consequence because you have this (somewhat false) sense of anonymity  is a breeding ground for hateful words. I don’t think I’m a very controversial person who will necessarily incite heated debate, but I guarantee if you looked at Susan Boyle’s audition for Britain’s Got Talent, the YouTube sensation a few years back, intermixed with the “You’re an inspiration!” you will find, “You’re an evil, fat (insert your favorite expletive here) who should die!” posted by someone named ballmeister10. Do you think ballmeister10 would have the balls (pun intended) to say this to her in person rather than from the safety of his mother’s basement? No. And more than that, if he did have the balls, why would he? She’s just singing a song. Is this the world we live in? Why do people post things like this? Shock value? Because they can? Are people so desperate to be heard that they feel every inane thought in their head must be shared with the world? Oh shit, that actually sounds like blogging…

*Mom, if you are reading this, I am sorry I cursed.
