Everybody has a Story…

If you haven’t read Zuly’s post yet on how Everybody has a Story, you should read it. Now. And head over and read Nicole’s post about the cult of perceived personality too – the post that inspired Zuly’s.

the “Inner Circle Syndrome” has officially spread and moved on to Weblog central. Will & I actually traded e-mails about this the other day because I spotted a link in my log files from the “workbook” address he uses to write his posts. I asked him to understand that the intent behind my post last week somehow got twisted over time, but I have to say that he did a good job of staying pretty true to the original intent. Kudos to him for that.

I have met a lot of people IRL that I met online, but no one that I just know as a blogger. I don’t, as a rule, feel close enough to too many bloggers to warrant meeting them. My other friends that I’ve met – we all knew each other from message boards where we spent hours every day messaging back and forth and getting to know each other pretty damn well. There is SO much that I don’t put out there on my blog – that people who read my blog and that’s it, have NO idea who I really am. Ya know?? I think that is the same for a lot of blogs that I read, too – I have no idea who/what these people really are just from a few blog posts a day or week.

Anyway… not sure where I was going with that! 🙂

And another thing… the cult of online personality thing only works if you remain nothing more than an online aquaintance. Take for example myself and Mike… we’ve met, we’ve joked around, we’ve been out for coffee, he digs my girlfriend, I dig his… so to him I am far more than some online identity I chose to display. He can easily concur that I am who I portray myself as.
