Part if the reason I started this new format of the site was to make things a bit more personal. When I look back over the things that I’ve been posting since then, not much of it seems very personal. I suppose part of that is because I don’t figure someone wants to read about me, per se, but would rather hear what I have to say about various things, mostly music. That’s not meant to be as self-depreciating as it reads. Really, there just aren’t very many people I want to read about. When I go to other people’s web sites, it’s because there’s a piece of them that they put out there that I enjoy. It’s a small part of them, whether it’s a humorous look at the day they had or the show they went to, I can count on them for that. It’s entertaining in some way or another. I can’t think of a single site that I visit to read about their life. When I say life, I mean the dramas and the happiness and the sadness. And the reason I don’t usually post things about my own life is because I either write it down somewhere else, not to be shared with anyone who happens to just stumble upon my site, or I just want to keep things consistent. People seem to respond to what’s here, so why change it?
There’s a part of me that thinks that if I do share bits a pieces of what’s really going on in my life, maybe that will help one person deal with something that they are going through. I don’t mean that in an egotistical I-know-it-all kind of way, but simply there may just be someone who is going through what I’m going through and it may be comforting to know that someone else is experiencing/has experienced it as well. I know when I am going through rough times, and even the happier times, it makes me feel better to write or talk to someone. I’m not turning the site into some support group kind of thing, but I feel compelled to reach out to people because I know someone may read it. And hey, even if you don’t read the personal stuff and you just want to find out what shows are coming up, that’s the beauty of it. You don’t have to read any of this.
