You Don't Live in My Computer Anymore
I often think about all of you that live in my computer... Usernames and profile pictures that I have grown to know you by. Sometimes, almost like magic, you appear in the flesh. You are real!
To me, blogging has made the world a smaller and nicer place. On a rare few occasions, when I get to travel to some place in the world, I like the idea of calling up on you. I am happy for having met you in the flesh. If not, why haven't we?
Very often, I question my purpose of blogging. The scene has changed so much. For a while I avoided anything personal... Even tried to make it into a marketing tool, but that got extremely dry and boring very quickly. In bad mood, I often felt the urge to pull the plug. But that's when I think about you.
My motivation behind keeping this blog, is to connect with real people and friends. That, I realise now. Just like the good old days of 2004, and why I started a blog. Except, you all are new friends now, and we oftentimes have something in common. And it's not just blogging.
