I used to say that when I was a kid, "For reals." especially when someone didn't believe me. "For reals." I would say and soon it got to be a habit, after almost every line. For reals.
I read a blog today that made me think about being for real and bloggin. Some people use their blogs for poetry, or fiction, or like JohnB and his daily travels on the city bus, with some poetry mixed in.
We can all use our blogs anyway we want. They are, after all our blogs. Yet some people use them for them the wrong way.
Let me explain. I kow a guy who uses them to make himself feel better about who he is. he will blog about his existence as a soldier for 10 years serving in many wars and as a peacekeeper. Yet, when I saw hiw actual army paperwork he only served two years.
He constantly checks and rechecks his blog for comments, which is fine, we all do that at some point in the day. Then if no one comments he gets mad and pissed off. Saying how no one likes him.
That is what brings me to blogging for you. Comments are nice but when you are not yourself people will find out and realize what a fake you are. And for reals, if you are going to be fake be an interesting and fun to read fake. Don't blog about model building or checking your mail.
Peace out, for reals!
