The Non Blogging Lifestyle

I'm beginning to wonder if blogging is really such a good idea.

I know that transparency is considered good in all things web. But, is it such a good thing regarding your own personal view of the world? We are tracked, categorized and pchyographed every moment we're on the web. Ever clean your cookies out? Notice how, no matter how often you do this, there's always more? More tracking. More 'where's he been, what's he doing' all the time.

And do our friends and family really need to know how pissed/sad/lonely/regretful/happy/satisfied/enter adjective we are at any given moment?

Sometimes I think it might be better if we just live our lives and not spend so much time analyzing, comparing and obsessing over things that, in the long run, just don't matter.

Think I’ll go do some living now. ;-)
