Crazie Queen wrote in a post once
how an "added bonus of feline blogging is it is an opportunity to stop being me for a while, and to be a crazy kitten dude, or a feisty old bagcat :-)." She went on to say that her Charlie was "morphing into a little surfdude :-)." I loved reading that post.
Now, for me at least, it was totally Eponine writing. I never penned a word. She was prolific and had tons of stories to tell. And she loved discovering a great, big, wide, wonderful world out there. After losing Ep, I wondered how or if to keep her blog going. Compared to her, I felt boring. Not to mention sad. Now I worry any new little monster won't be interested in blogging. There's so many uncertainties but I can worry about that later.
In her Feb. 12, 2006 column in "The Kansas City Star,"
Diane Stafford wrote about how no web site is "personal," and that someone can actually be fired for something posted on their blog. My Epster even wrote about that fact
in a post last August. Ms. Stafford wrote that "personal background checks" of the future likely will even include a search for these "personal sites." Oh my!
Lucky for the felines, canines, rats, bunnies and others, you don't have to worry about background checks and job searches. You're not even (as far as I know) trying to hook up romantically with others. You might be sharing drunken, catnip addiction stories or picking up some babe while walking through the park, but oh well. Surely, no one would ever hold those stories against you for any reason.
As for Crazie Queen and the likes, they can just say "Hey, that wasn't me. That's my (creature living with a human) writing that crazy (liberal/conservative/personal/whatever word(s) you want to substitute) stuff." I have a dilemma because I have no monster that's doing any musing or that can be my excuse. At least for now, that is.
What I liked best about cq's post back then was her revealing that these bloggers ... "be they owners or carers or whatever, reach somewhere in me that I hadn't experienced before. They made me look outside myself and view life from a feline perspective."
What a great perspective that is! Maybe some of those background checkers will gain some of that too someday. Peace out, dudes.
