It always amazes me that most of the people I know in RL don’t read blogs at all. I send out links to wonderful pages and great information by outstanding writers, but they’re just not interested. I’m surprised by the number of people who have never heard the term “blog” before and who ask me exactly what’s the point. I generally go into the shortened “from the word ‘weblog’ ” explanation and give them a quickie on some of the types of pages I’ve seen – I’ve offered links to different blog hosting services and waited for the announcement that there’s a new kid on the block out there.
I’ve watched people’s eyes kind of glaze over sometimes when I’m discussing blogging, and I realize that this phenomenon just isn’t for everyone. (My head realizes it – but my heart still doesn’t get it).
I’ve been warned not to give up too much info about the wonder that is jali – if I do, the “internet stalkers” will get me. I’ve been told that my online family members are actually nuts who type with one desperate hand while naked and masterbating and that it’s impossible to make real friends online.
I’ve met some of you guys – and you’re as perverted as me – and I loves ya.
Are your RL friends and family members bloggers? If not are they supporters?
