I realised today (yeah, bathrooms are very thought provoking as always, it seems) that blogging is somehow one-way socializing. Pretty much like first radio-amateurs, broadcasting in hope that someone is listening, a dialogue with only one part talking (not a monologue, though – even if it becomes one many times).
BUT. Since blogging takes time, this means that the beer you could have with someone is gone. Hence, the title. When blogging, you tend to neglect your social life. And feeling this, you tend to blog even more, to compensate the lack of real human contact. Before you know it, you’re addicted. Surely, some bloggers meet, talk and stuff, but they still have the need to blog. Few manage to do more than just the bed-job-bed daily routine, as Andressa writes about it (article in romanian). Sometimes I really wish the earth-day had 48 hours.
But then again, you can’t really say that doing-nothing-days don’t have their charm :)
Maybe I should start having more beers.
