Except now, I have no time, so I have few readers. I do have several very devoted, probably insane friends who read this blog fairly regularly and in fact have blogs themselves. But I don't read their blogs (gasp!), nor am I apt to, except on the odd occasion. It's not that I don't care about them or their thoughts, but....OK, I'm just going to admit it, I care about me and my thoughts more (double gasp!). Yeah, that's right, I'm in this for myself. Just call me the Self-Centered Blogger. The good news is I will assume that the reason you have a blog is that you, too, are self-centered, and therefore I don't expect you to read my blog either.
So to re-cap: Most of the blogosphere is made up of completely isolated blogs authored by people who are so self-centered they read no other blogs and therefore acquire no readers; and blogs authored by people who are so self-centered they read millions of blogs in pursuit of millions of readers for their own blogs and thus build a community of self-centered people feeding each others' egos. A cynic might say it's pretty much a mirror of actual human society, but I won't go that far. I like people in real life, I'm just not going to read their blogs, because that requires a lot of effort, literacy, and eye strength, and I'm low on all that these days.
Then there are, of course, those of you who are actually reading this and are clearly not that low of human beings and therefore should take no offense at this post. But neither should you expect me to read your blog.
