And perhaps this is why we blog. Even though sometimes no one is listening, and other times too many people are.
I've seen a lot of bloggers demanding comments, delighting in 'followers' and glorying in the number of page hits they manage to get. And I won't deny that - upon occasion - I'm one of them. But when it's all said and done, this blog means far more to me than just an excuse to be a virtual drama-queen.
This blog verbalizes my thoughts, my fears, my aspirations, my dreams. It tells you who I am better than I could tell you myself. If you look around, it will show you 'me', with more honesty than I am capable of. And even while it talks to you, this blog talks to me too. In moments of self-doubt when I feel like I have no idea who-I-am and who-I-would-like-to-be, this blog - and the words I have spoken to it - reminds me.
It reminds me that: I am Xeb.
And 'this' is 'my' blog.
