There's this text box. A text box that begs to be filled with the internal chattering, giving it a sort of physical manifestation.
What does the chattering say right now? That it's bedtime and I should sleep. It also says I want to be heard.
About what, exactly? I don't know. It really doesn't matter. I just want to be heard. I guess that's why we're online creating content, in the ways we do, right? We just want to be heard.
But the harsh truth is, no one gives a fuck. That and there's too much other shit out there on the Internet for other people to do. Or read. Or listen to.
I'm lucky in that I started on this Internet thing way early–before it hit the mainstream. I have somewhat of a following. Not a big one, mind you, but I have one.
But I also know the likelihood that anyone will say "hey, I like what you do." Or even acknowledge that I'm doing something.
At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter all that much. What I said. Or that you acknowledged it. I'm either going to continue doing what I do or I won't.
That said, a nice note to someone who created something goes a long way. Its lets them know they've been heard.
Even if you don't do it for my little narcissistic blog posting, do it for someone else. Let them know they have been heard.
