I was so excited to start blogging, but then I put a few blogs out there and nothing happened.
Other forms of social media are so much more responsive and interactive. You tweet or post and, if you’re lucky (or if your post has a picture of a freakin’ adorable animal), then a dozen or so folks comment or like your post, maybe even follow you. Blogs, not so much. This is actually one of my defects of characters that I’ve worked on for years – I want everybody to like me.
Another thing about blogs is who wants to sit in front of a computer and have a monologue with cyberspace? I had enough isolation in my life when I was drugging and drinking, especially after I narrowed my world down to: 1) those who consumed mass quantities of booze and drugs like me, or 2) those from whom I could easily hide my using. There weren’t too many people left in my life there at the end.
So, I added this new forum to my website for some dialogue and I hope you’ll drop a line and at least say hello, or better yet, share some of your highs and lows.
