I’ve been blogging since we blogged uphill both ways.* Really. I barely knew what a blog was. For the first four months I did it strictly for myself. Then I found a blogging association most of us love to leave out of our blogging resumes. The next morning I found myself in an alternate universe I sometimes think is my real life. People bookmarked me. OK I got that. But the link exchange–uh, what’s a link?
I learned this new world, though the learning curve was long and high, and began to meet people through emails. Gmail didn’t have IM then and I swear AOL chat would crash my computer.
Anyways as the Wombat says, I discovered amazing uh esoteric people. Many who are much younger than I am. Like in: I first knew them when they were in their late teens. Having young exceptionally bright friends forces me to think and challenge my views on some subjects. They remind me of the best of me–those years when everything was new, almost always fun except if it was horrific. And while the world was in horrible shape I knew I was destined for a wonderful future. And it happened!
The Wombat is an amazing person and friend. He has opinions (learned and scholarly) on almost everything, appreciates James Spader like nobody but me, while being straight. Has one of those great storybook Boston families that actually has camping reunions. And so much more. He’s an incredible helpful, thoughtful friend.
His current post, mostly on Egypt has an unusual, different and really almost commonsense take. He talks about things other people don’t.
Uh government workers have joined the protesters. I so hope this is a revolution for good and the betterment of the Egyptian people.
Now I blog for Psychology Today and my latest post was called an essential read, by Psychology Today. Not that I’m bragging or anything. Yeah me!!!!! (I never say things like this and lately….)
I’ll take essential read anyway I can!!!!!!!
