Behind The Blog Who Are You Really?
I am in the process of writing a new story in ‘Stories and Tales’, however l am delayed in my completion of it due to Suze falling ill again, and my concentration for long content takes a sidestep tumble when this happens. So l must put the story into a holding vault until l am ready to start it again, which hopefully it’ll not be too long in storage.
As l write this story l travel back to the years of when it happened and l look at my life back then to where l am today typing, wondering how much have l changed as a person – which is significant l can assure you. 1982 – 2019 is 37 years, then l was 19. What’s happened to me in all of those years?
I have lived my life, l have lived lives … l have lived in life.
But the person who sits typing to you today is a collective of those 37 years and all the years before, of many identities, many personalities, many blogs if you wish … a character of fiction, drama, love, sex, rock and roll, pain, sorrow, grief and the list of lives, behaviours and emotions goes on and on and yet the person here today is merely the composed author of all those stories. All the stresses and thrills, spills and excitements of creating them in real time, expended to where each new day today the blog is a blank canvas where the years of experience , the humours and joys of living x amount of years now serves itself up each new day to the audiences of both my own mind and the readership of my blog – l serve two audiences – twin readerships.
However, who am l beneath the facade of the authoring blog? Am l the same person, is it all just a display for the readership? Who are we all …. really, behind the blog – who are we in flesh, blood and soul – are we, you, me, l, myself, yourselves – are you the same identity, the same personality that writes or is the person behind the blog, very different to even you the reader?
Are you the blogger the same person as the writer?
