Blogging by the Seat of my (under) Pants
Another Random Act of Link-Love:
“Meanwhile I haven’t combed my hair in three days and have taken one shower since the new year has begun…but my celebrity blog stylist tells me I’m not supposed to be telling you that.”
I can relate. So it got me thinking about how this blogging gig allows us to interact with the virtual world whilst hiding our real selves behind our computer screens.
Let’s face it, we all do our darndest to put our best image forward, uploading our best photos to show off our pepsodent smiles or funniest antics. But is that what we are really like?
I can’t help but wonder how many of us are really blogging with unkept hair, a beer in hand and sitting in our underwear, our dirtiest teeshirt, (or perhaps even naked as a jaybird — I’m blushing just at the thought).
So to get the ball rolling the Bloke has a confession to make. At the risk of losing whatever little respect you may have for me, I admit that I often blog in my PJ’s.
Side Note: That reminds me of a story when in my past life I was a practicing litigator (eventually I got good enough and no longer needed to practice, but I digress). I was working out of my home office when I got a call from a judge about a case we discussed at a pre-trial conference. Heh, if he only knew that I was talking to him in my underwear! But then again do we really know what they wear underneath those robes? (I shudder at the thought).
Ok, so there you have it. It’s now out in the open and you can laugh all you want, but at least I’m honest.
So how about you? Come on… ‘fess up, it’s good for your soul.
