Viva La Resistance!
Psst... have you ever wondered what bloggers are really like in person? While it is widely accepted that we are gifted in the art of written communication, the reputation of bloggers is that many of us have limited social skills.
A week ago, I was put to the test if I could pass for a normal person. I visited a longtime reader of this blog. He was all giddy that a famous blogger (his words) was sitting on his couch with his toy poodle in their lap. He told me that he really enjoyed my blog because it made him laugh. I told him that I was thrilled to hear that, because the rumor going around is that my crazy blog makes others feel normal. He neither confirmed nor denied it. He simply smiled.
This past weekend, a couple from Fort Lauderdale approached me at the Bourbon Pub. Are you Brettcajun?, they asked. Why...yes I am, I replied back. They were genuinely thrilled to meet me. I am quite sure I gave them a bigger Brettcajun experience than they expected. Hey, if you are a loyal reader and take the time to talk to me, I am going to make it worth your while.
Which comes to my point: bloggers are real people too. We have feelings and emotions just like anyone else. Contrary to popular belief, physical contact with the real world is just as important to us. Perhaps we do spend too much time thinking, writing, or daydreaming. But that is what makes us special.
I am proud of this blog. I love every friend I have met as a
result of it. Despite what others may think, I have made true friends for life that I'll always cherish. I will not bow down and end something that brings me endless happiness. Viva La Resistance!
