Earlier today, I read part of a print magazine article about blogging in the German language. There were a lot of t’s and z’s in it [pained and canned laughter]. It was about whether or not narcissism shows up more or less in the so called blogosphere. Personally, I think it has to do with how often people blog in private and how much they feel read. I knew one young woman who used to blog in a cafe where a few of us writers and would be writers congregated with many others. I usually blog in what would otherwise be ‘private’. If no one read it, it might as be about my armpit hair in that no one else needs to have any interest in it at all as long as it seems relevant to me. However, the more readers there are the less it seems acceptable to me to go on about ‘what I saw when I gazed at my own navel’.
