The internet doesn’t get vacation days
All across the world, we plug in and tune out
Games, blogs, & pictures, it’s hard to stay away
Even now, I sit here on my laptop with doubt
Remember when we ventured outside to explore?
As great as the online world can sometimes be
Isn’t there a life outside of it that means more?
More than words on a screen for all to see
I go through spurts of heavy world wide web presence
And ones completely unplugged from it all
Trying to find a healthy balance between them, in essence
Sometimes it’s not easy to do and I hit a wall
I try to remember to take a break now and then
To get face to face time, each day create a beautiful memory
To enjoy fully the life that I have before it’s taken
And with that said, it’s time to unplug and be free
Many of us that blog get excited the more “followers” we get and why shouldn’t we? Our words are reaching an astronomical amount of people daily, all across the globe. We reach, teach, inspire, amuse, and make people think, get them to feel. I think it’s a great gift, being able to share our lives, thoughts, dreams, feelings, and talents with the world.
How do you use your online fame? Has it changed you? How do you feel being an online star? What have you given to the WordPress community and what has it given to you? Please, share your thoughts and experiences with me!
Small note, I prefer to call those who read my blog, “Subscribers” or “Readers” instead of “Followers”. I do this because calling you my followers makes me feel like some sort of cult leader. Perhaps that’s weird of me, but then, I am pretty weird. 😉
