a tale of two tires

THIS is my blog. An on-line journal, i believe, by definition.

But sometimes I look at my blog from a third party point of view, and can't help but think to myself:
"Is this an accurate reflection of who I am?"
"If I were to meet someone from this site on the street, would they talk to me for 15-20 minutes and tell me that I'm just the way they thought I'd be, based on my blog?"
"If someone I know outside this site were to read this blog, would they be able to tell that I wrote it?"

I don't care. I really don't.

This is my blog. And sometimes my reasons for writing a post may not be completely conveyed through its contents. Sometimes I feel it is. Other times I feel like I'm getting close, but not quite hitting the nail on the head.

My posts all have one thing in common, though. Whether I'm asking a question, relaying a story, reflecting on something through writing, or just throwing out useless trivia... I want validation. I want to be heard. I want to be understood. I want to hear that someone else has had the same problem, or not, in some cases. Sometimes I just want to know that "I'm not the only one!"

It's not a matter of being a comment whore either. I don't need 49 comments on each post. I usually don't get 5.

But no matter what, I feel that there probably are two tires.

One that cares. And one that don't.

Hey Tires...you know I read your blog...and we've already established several areas of commonality.

I'm #6 in the state of AZ...and #1 for Southern Arizona.

I don't get a lot of comments either...and I know how you feel about wanting validation. I think though...that it just takes time for people to come around....I don't think those on the top of the list got there overnight. My early post's I pretty much just "wrote"...my thoughts and feelings...and I got a few comments here and there...but mostly a big fat zero. Have a good one! C'ya...

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~
