Sister Mel and I were at a wedding recently (not our own) and we were chatting non-stop to each other. The guy sitting next to me (not my husband as I had put him next to Mel’s husband so they could bond while we yakked) asked if we saw each other often and we said ‘no, but we read each other’s blogs to find out what is going on in her life'
The good thing about having a blog is that my friends and family (and several thousand strangers) know exactly what is going on in my life. They know when I am sad; they know when exciting things happen. They sometimes even see pictures of my new fake boobs.
The bad thing about having a blog is that unless those same friends and family have a blog, I have absolutely no idea what is going on in their life.
Which is really, really bad! If blogs weren’t around, we would be calling each other, or emailing with updates and news, but because they know what is going on in my life, I hear nothing from them. Which means I have no idea what is going on in their lives. Every now and then I will send an email begging for some news, but otherwise I hear nothing. Bad friends, bad!
So, the bottom line is if you want to be my friend, you better get a blog. Or at least send me a weekly email with latest news and updates. Or else I will have to break up with you. No blog / email / updates = NO MORE BFF!!!
