It’s All About Me

Are Bloggers Narcissists?: I’ve thought this exact thing for years. I am a narcissist when it comes to blogging — there’s no other way to describe it.

When it comes down to it, most blogs have sometype of self serving or self promoting interest. The company does it to inform and get customers; the politician to get the word out, etc. Even the more diary oriented ones or those that are informative are still being done to promote something — if for nothing else than inflating the blogger’s ego. I do it for a number of reasons, keeping customers up to date, floating ideas, creating a Squidoo lens to highlight kids’ cancer because of someone I know.

I do not like to think that I am a narcissist, but at some level I guess I am.
