This is Curious

April 5, 2008

I don’t know why, but when I read other blogs, I sometimes forget that these are actually people’s lives.  I forget that between posts, stuff actually happens.  There’s more to their lives than what gets posted, and that the reason posts don’t happen more often is that their lives are busy.  That’s why I’m always caught off guard when someone posts with some big news that has happened since the last post.  In my mind, their lives have been on pause since the last post, not taking a kid to the ER or getting pregnant or moving.  Unless someone specifically mentions a big event to occur in the near future, I don’t wonder about what’s going on with them or worry about why they haven’t posted.

I am so self-centered sometimes.  I hate that about myself.  I’m learning to get over that quickly, though, as many of you are forcing me to worry about you between posts.  I’m afraid I may end up being one of those people who e-mails their favorite bloggers if they don’t post when expected just to make sure they’re okay.  I don’t know…is that considerate or annoying?
