Blogging replacing "real" life

Blogging can of course be a wonderful thing. It gives you a chance to vent,to expound,to sermonize and much more. But how SAD is it when blogging begins to take the place of real life?
The internet is both a wonderful and terrible place. It allows you to converse with people the world over,to share views,perhaps to meet people in person and share some intimate moments together,after all,that's why MOST of us are on this system.
But when the internot and blogging begins to REPLACE real life,well that's where the internet becomes a sad,sad place.
When a blogger begins to tell people who post on their blog that they really "care" for them or even "love" them,well,that's not only sad,but actually kind of scary. How can you care or love someone you've never met in person? If you care so much for a blogger,or even profess love for that blogger,I guess then you'd have no problem putting them up in your home for a few days,or have no trouble lending them a thousand bucks to tide them over right?
You'd have no trouble letting them babysit your kids,or maybe even take them to the park or zoo without you present right?
Another sad sad place dealing with blogging is the "pity party" blog. Oh,I'm so sad today,or "oh I'm just so down" today...intended of course to elicit sympathy from fellow bloggers. Again,so very sad to watch this,because you just know that person really has no real life at all,and turns to the internet and bloggers to fill that void.
So sad.

.... ummmm.... if you feel this way about blogging, why do you have a blog?

and maybe you should look up the definition of a 'blog'???

and to get back to the question ... YES there are several bloggers I would welcome to my home anytime (that is if they can book the shuttle in time) or lend a helping hand, financial or otherwise (and no, I'm not just making this up)

You must have missed the very FIRST FEW sentences on my blog goddess.
Maybe you should read them again and answer youe own question about why I blog.
Secondly,if you would allow someone into your home to stay for awhile or help them financially without ever meeting them in person and getting to know them,then I guess you are one of those poeple so easily swayed into being bilked out of thousands of dollars through internet schemes and the like.Conmen and women are just looking for people like you.

I wonder if my comment in response of LongFrank's reply of August 2 is visible to others or just to me ....
