BLOG: a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer
I’m coming to the conclusion that blogging is bad for friendships.
Many of the moms I used to see regularly when our kids attended the same school have faded from my daily life now that our kids are at different schools. Now, we only see each other on random errands around town, strolling at the farmer’s market or on the soccer sidelines.
I miss them.
But, I don’t think they miss me.
When I see them, they mention that they have been reading my blog. I love that. BUT, it’s one-sided. They know things little and big about my life these days, but I know very little about theirs. I miss hearing about their new restaurant discoveries, cute kid anecdotes, “seriously, it’s only 11am?!” moments, etc.
To those of you who know my real name, I say this: call me. Let’s chat. Walk. Drink. Prank call strangers. Backfloat. I don’t care what we do, but I want to see you and have a chance to hear about YOU. Not that we’re keeping score, but if we were you would owe me roughly 168 stories, observations and/or updates.
Now, please excuse me while I wait by the phone…
