Voyeurism

Reading blogs is a little like voyeurism. The corollary therefore is that writing blogs is exhibitionism. I can’t say I disagree 100% but it’s exhibitionism where the audience gets to choose whether or not to participate in the exhibit, as opposed to the good old fashioned flasher who strikes with no warning. Folks, I am no flasher.

If you’d like to get a little more voyeuristic but in a safe, funny way, check out the wisdom and wit of one Jen Myszkowski, stand-up comedian and sometimes dater. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder “what the *&^^&%$ ?!”

SP--

Actually, I think reading blogs is a lot like voyeurism. In fact, I told a journalism student that the reason live journals get read at all is because people are voyeurs at heart -- and the fact that they get read so much is just relevatory of the extent to which we are voyeurs.

I wonder if this is why I tend to keep most details of my personal life off my blog. It seems weird that strangers would be reading. It seems even weirder, though, that people I know would be reading it. So, kudos to you on your exhibitionism, and for anyone who's not reading JM's blog, I second that.
