I want to praise you, fellow bloggers – Mk II

Firstly, let me just say I’ve just gone over 1000 views on my blog. And while that is probably considered small fry, I only started it less than 2 weeks ago so I’m going crazy about it right now. Thanks to all of you who have liked my posts, commented on those posts and even signed up to follow me. I tip my hat to you.

Secondly, the Blogger Praise this week goes to two people.

  1. Lauren from Viciously Sweet. Yes yes, I’ve mentioned her before but she was the first person I didn’t know who signed up to follow me. That gave me heaps of shiny confidence to keep going. So thank you.
  2. Jen from Sips of Jen and Tonic. You were the second person to sign up to follow me that I didn’t know. Plus you have an awesome name. And you also inspired me to this week create my own cards and send them to my dearest at random. See Jen’s New Years Resolutions. It’s a perfectly lovely idea. So thank you.

The moment you realise you’re not the only weirdo.

So WordPress has opened my eyes. Opened them so wide in fact I almost can’t stand it. I thought becoming addicted to my own blog was bad enough, but now I seem to be addicted to everyone else’s too.

Spending hours in front of the computer reading about other people’s lives can definitely have its drawbacks….tired eyes, lack of sleep, diminished¬†relationships….but the unexpected benefit is that I’ve realised something. I’m not the only one….like me.

I’m not the only one with a dry, self-deprecating¬†humour, obsessively¬†analysing all areas of my life, dramatically over-playing seemingly quite benign events. But somehow that’s comforting.

So if you’ve ever done any of the following, we’re probably quite alike and would make very good, sometimes sarcastic friends:

  1. Laid awake at night, writing a post in your head, editing it, re-writing it and then imagining pushing the publish button only to wake up and forget everything you thought about.
  2. Stayed up until two in the morning, editing a short film you made, with visions of fame and notoriety, only to wake up and realise it was a very bad short film and you can’t believe you lost so much precious sleep over it.
  3. Go through some horrendous, embarrassing incident only to console yourself that it will make an excellent story and people will no doubt find it hilarious, tell it to all and the realise you shouldn’t have.

So bloggers, thanks for making me realise I’m not the only weirdo out there. Power to the weirdos…may they live long and slightly awkward lives.
