Peeping Tom

I never thought of it before, but reading people's blogs is sort of like being a peeping tom, except that it's stuff that they want you to read in it. I don't think that anybody really writes in their blog what they really want you to know, because you never know who will really read it, so you don't say anything that will make somebody upset. Well, at least some of us do. A friend of mine just told me tha she would never forgive sombody who read her journal. I didn't know that about her, and it would have never occurred to me. Maybe it's because I watch too much tv where Ferguson has stolen Clarissa's diary from under her bed and has sold the pages at her school. Then again, she's pretty young so there's probably not that much in her life that she wouldn't want to share with anybody. Also, when I was young I had a journal that my mom gave me for Christmas one year. Then something happened and my mom destroyed my room looking for incriminating evidence on me. She totally read my diary and then used the stuff inside against me for a long time. Blogs have become such a phenomenon now, that I send a lot more time reading them then I do writing them. I like knowing what people think about stuff and sharing my thoughts with them. I think that's what attracts people to blogs, and why people keep writing in them. You get a look into people's lives, and yet those people can portray anything that they want to.

It's funny you should say that. I just got on the blogspot to write a blog, but ended up spending the past half hour reading other people blogs. I agree about the irony of a peeping Tom who is only looking at someone's portrayal of themselves. However, I think many people do reveal themselves, or at least parts of themselves. I think some of are willing to expose ourselves because we want people to connect with us. We want to see if other people can relate all the crazy stuff we have going on in our head (and many times they can).
