06/14/2001 Entry: "What I don't post."

I understand completely, Matt. There's too much that I don't put down here because "someone else posted it." But I do myself and other people a disservice. My Mom probably doesn't follow Jonno (though she may now! snicker). I don't think the Roommate reads Ernie. Our Mutual Friend probably doesn't know of Living Proof. So not only am I doing myself a disservice, I'm doing it to my primary audience too.

I need to just post what I find amusing or interesting, when I see it. Like the cow song or the Glam Rock Name Generator (but call me Golden Cheeks and I'll slug you.)

Or are you doing us a disservice by posting them? ;)

"Moons over my hammy?!"

Really, though, everyone's already linked to everything, so if you're gonna think about it that way, you may as well not link to anything...

Exactly. That is the nature of the medium, now, innit? Things link to other things. I mean, if someone followed my toys page slavishly, they'd see many of the same things I do...but other people read different things than I do. And what's the point of not talking about them if there's something to note, even just that it sucked?

You may have a lot of real-life friends & aquaintances who read your page, but only 2 or 3 people I actually know read my page -- all other readers are fellow webloggers or people who read lots of weblogs -- thus my reluctance to link to things many others have already.

You guys are making a big assumption here... that we, your readership, read the same weblogs/journals that you do, and will see these already-everywhere links. That's not necessarily true, so spread the joy!

(Golden Cheeks! Hee hee! :) Hee!)
