Exploring through the blogs hosted on this ginormous site, that is, and the main thing I noticed is this: people write a lot. They write about their families, jobs, road trips, movies they watched, stuff they did over the weekend…just a lot. It made me feel lazy and voyeuristic to go poking through so many lives in one evening rather than writing something myself, so here I am. I could be full of it and say that my search for a topic to blather about was successful, but nah. The whole thing just struck me as interesting enough to note. Honestly, my life isn’t really less exciting than that of anyone else who happens to blog, so why do they write more?
I’m going to go with habit and gaming. For them, blogging is a habit, a way they keep people in the loop of their lives. For me, gaming is a habit, a way to spend time with my husband and the friends we’ve made in our current game. They’re not really that different, now that I think about it. The end results just aren’t as visible with the latter. Still, I really do need to write here more. My brain atrophies when I fall behind on my quota of word-nerding. ~H
