Pondering With a Purpose - Blog World vs. Real World
This week's topic for Pondering With a Purpose is your blog world versus your real world. Are they separate lives, the same?
This kind of ties into last week's topic, listening, at least for me. In my blog world, I can talk about almost anything. I can get it all off my chest with no interruptions. So it's nice. In the real world I don't always have that luxury. To be honest, how many people in real life want to hear me talk for 20 minutes about a piece from my shot glass collection each week? I don't blame them! But in blog world if a blogger's post is irrelevant to you, you can skim, discontinue reading it, or not open it at all. But generally, people in the blog world want to read about these somewhat irrelevant moments in your life. It's what it's all about.
In conclusion, I would definitely say that my blog world and my real world are definitely two separate things. And I feel it is good that they are separate because one can be an outlet from the other. When I have a frustrating conversation or experience in real life, I can log on to Blogger and complain about it, or I can talk about something completely different. And vice versa, but I can honestly say I haven't had a frustrating moment in blog world, except for the occasional difficulty. My blog is an extension of my voice, it's a place for me to speak in detail about things that I don't always have the opportunity to speak about in real life. I like it here.
