Originally, that was one of the purposes of this journal. Way back when ... I don't remember but it had to be years ago, I posted some stuff talking about feedback. That's kinda what I was trying to get at back then. Since then I basically came to the conclusion that I'm just not the type of person that attracts many friends. That has spilled over in this journal.
I used to post some things in hopes to get feedback and see if my fly was open so to speak. Those posts never got any comments. So I figure if I mess up too much, something eventually will happen and if my metaphoric fly is open, ... ah, I guess I just have to let things hang out and take the unnoticed whispers and pointing behind my back.
It's funny. I have been thinking about the above before susandennis posted her entry yesterday. Maybe not using the terms above in my head, but what I was mulling over does boil down to wanting more people to check if the zipper of my life is down and things are showing that shouldn't be showing. Then after I lost someone on my friends list recently, I started giving more serious thought to joining either facebook or myspace for more interaction with others.
The problem is, as I know, me. I still might join one or more of those "social networks" as I've heard them called. However, never having been a social being, my odds of functioning well on one of those sites ... well, I'd just be back to what I was doing with those old lj entries that never got any comments.
