I've been busting to find some time to post words, lots of things going through my mind - especially about the comments on that post, which continue to grow ever more interesting and thought provoking. Also a few little crafty things I've completed and a few more plans I've been hatching.
Instead I will take this brief moment to tell anonymous, who finds my what I wore today posts boring and narcissistic that I find anonymous nasty comments a bit cranky making. And kind of silly in an age when IP addresses ensure that no one can really be anonymous anyway.
I mean, I think blogging is by nature narcissistic and at least some of the time boring. And my reasons for blogging are almost entirely narcissistic - just as Narcissus gazed upon himself in the pool, so I gaze upon my life through the blog. You are right, this is exactly why I do it.
That the posts are perhaps a little more boring than usual may well reflect that preparing for an interstate move is about as boring as life gets. In this way I guess that the blog truly reflects life.
Also, I think the daily posts are boring in the way all data collection exercises are. Those who are interested in what I am trying to understand and come to conclusions about seem to be finding the daily posts a necessary (and possibly enjoyable) part of the journey. Not everyone just wants the executive summary! Sometimes looking at the detail and trying to learn from the nuances is the best bit.
But mostly I just want to say, you know, if you find my reflection boring then move along to something shinier and more suitable. Preferably without the comments that only serve to make bad vibes for everyone and that you aren't prepared to put your name to.
