I’ve seen other blogs. They’re…cute. Although in most cases I would rather read spam. So I tend to just reread my posts here instead. But last night was a major milestone as I received my 3rd comment ever from a blogger called ‘lennonsundance’ (whom I’ll refer to as ‘LSD’ from here on out).
While normal girls fill out questionnaires on Pinterest to find out what character of Sex and the City they were in a past life, LSD is a hardcore chick who answers questionnaires on MySpace to see which fruitcake from Girl Interrupted she takes after.
I felt an instant connection with LSD because we’ve both been institutionalized (although I immediately called my lawyer(s), threatened a lawsuit, and bailed, whereas LSD writes glowingly about her time inside like it was a timeshare in Costa Rica).
As the voice of my generation, it’s easy to forget the importance of listening. But after encountering LSD’s blog, I decided I should devote more time to reading about other attention whores desperately trying to establish an internet platform in order to sell a crap memoir besides myself—even though I have the attention span of a goldfish.
I will do my best to judge and reciprocate every new blogger who follows me, and if you’re lucky like LSD, you just might get a shout out.
