response

Reason 1 why Facebook gets more attention than my blog.
People actually respond on facebook.
Last time anyone commented on my blog was on July 16 when an anonymous writer scolded me for killing a spider.
Because as much as I could say that my blog is for me...I'd be lying. I write for people. I write hoping that I'm communicating with someone.
Facebook...much of it is inane, boring, unimportant...but at least people will comment. At the very least they "like" a comment, so you know you've been heard.

This is very sad to me. My blog actually pushes me to think more deeply and care about more than just a sound bite. But without a participatory audience, I just feel lonely.

And the only way you build an audience is by writing. But without an audience, it's hard to be motivated to write. Maybe that's why I'm not a "real" writer...cause I don't just write for myself.
But do I really want my blog out there for all my fb friends to read? I could publish the address...but for some reason I've kept it more private. I mean, it's on the internet, so it's not really private, but it doesn't even have my real name on it.

OK...enough talking to myself...back to facebook. :P
