I love blogs! I love writing them, reading them, and stalking them. Seriously, I know it's not okay how much time I spend with them, but it is a great social outlet when you are stuck at home with kids all day.
I had a good laugh as I checked my friends' blogs, the three I just had a play date at the park with, to see that after hanging out we all went home and blogged. We sure are a technologically driven society. I make fun of my husband for playing the Wii over Wi-Fi instead of just going to his friend's house just down the street, yet I guess I do the same thing in a slightly less nerdy manner.
I wonder if it is wrong that I already know of a friend's friend before she is even mentioned, let alone, her spouse's name, her children's names and where they vacationed last month, because I hopped from my friend's blog to this so-called stranger's blog. I will admit it; I am a blog stalker. I can say this here, among friends (or possibly my own stalkers?), but I would never admit my addiction by commenting on their site, no matter how much I want to know where they received their stylish new haircut.
I, however, do know that I am not alone. I was able to meet up with an old friend, (another wonderful benefit from blogging, keeping in touch with those you would otherwise not see) who informed me that her friend loves my recipes. Oddly, this gave me a strange sense of accomplishment; I am cool enough to have a complete stranger be interested in my life, or at least my cooking. That says something, doesn't it? So I have determined that it is official... I am a big deal! I am significant, and all because I blog.
