I've been trying to think of some topics for this discussion and thought of this one a while ago when I was talking to one of my blog friends. So, for lack of a better phrase or question, today's blog discussion is about blogging and it's relation to popularity.
The blog world is huge and each of us are just trying to find our own identity and fit in amongst this community... Do you feel like blogging can sometimes be like high school all over again? Maybe one big popularity contest? There are always going to be the bigger blogs, the blogs with hundreds of thousands, or even millions of readers. In high school, the popular girl always gets the guy or she's homecoming queen. In blogging, the popular blog gets 100 comments per post.. or something like that. Okay, that was probably a silly comparison but hopefully you get what I mean ;) Does anyone ever find themselves comparing your own blog to other 'bigger' blogs?
I had a lot of acceptance issues growing up, I always wanted to fit in and be one of the 'popular girls'. So when I get caught up in that and loose sight of why I blog and why I started this blog, it gets discouraging thinking of all the 'big blogs' out there. What about you? Can anyone relate or is it just me? :) I hope this isn't too controversial, I don't want the tone to be negative, rather, just seeing if anyone else out there has any thoughts or insights about this topic :)
ps: I'm selling at a university vendor fair all day today.. so I'll definitely enjoy reading your comments and discussion while I'm just sitting outside ;)
