Only on the Internet can a person be lonely and popular at the same time.”
This was a quote about blogging, which I found over the internet. And I believe about what he said. You can be a lonely person online and be popular at the same time. This can happen in internet forums, online games, online communities and most specially on blogs.
How is this possible?
Well, it is hard to explain how, so let me put a certain situation how this can become possible. If you are online, be it playing games, participating in online communities and forums or spending most of your time on your blog, there’s a huge chance that you are by yourself. Thus you are lonely – not necessarily the lonely sad kind of thing. You are lonely because you are alone in your room doing what you are doing over the internet.
You can become popular at the same time if you are the kind of gamer who has plenty of online game friends, the blogger who has many follows and comments and the forum user who has many replies and community friends.
We can’t also dismiss the fact that over the internet, you can create a different persona about yourself. You can become anyone or any person that can become popular to other people. So this is why some people who have experienced bullying or have problems with their social life create a persona over the internet to escape their reality.
Now I created this blog not because I was bullied or having social problems. Definitely, I did not create this blog because I want to be popular. Well, if it happens then I would be glad. But for now, my plan for this blog is just right anything I want.
