I have never considered myself a writer, an internet personality or someone you go to have get an opinion out of. I do not market myself and I do not like the idea of fame. So how is it that I am posting my thoughts and feelings on this very site as your eyes hang on the letters of this little post? I, myself, do not know the answer to that question.
See, social media has some anonymity to it and some privacy but thats the left side of the social media spectrum that I will probably get into further down the road. The right extreme side of the social media spectrum would be to put your whole life on the web to get fame, popularity and so on and so forth. I would fall around the middle leaning towards the left side to be honest with you all. To be popular is a nice idea that I toy with in my head, but in retrospect, that is not who I am. I like having a nice little circle of friends and family. I would not enjoy strangers asking me for advice or all that hoopla that a celebrity deals with on a regular basis.
This is not bashing on celebrity or fame. This is me defining why I write for examiner. I did it for the experience of being a regular writer (sorta). It has been a nice commitment and I would like to continue to do it. It is quite ironic that I am the social media examiner and examiner is a sort of media to be digested in a social manner. So what I really am examining is the inner working of such a site as Examiner.com and its branches of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and those big brand name Social Media sites.
Thanks for the year of writing, Examiner, here is to another one.
