An evolutionary step?

Starting to read blogs is a good step to becoming more aware.

Writing your own blog makes you more thoughtful about what matters and what is worth recording.

Being read by people you respect makes you feel more confident that what you say has some value and encourages you to think more independently.

Becoming highly rated on Google risks making your ego inflate.

Sitting next to her as she reads the posts you have written about her makes you feel like nothing else on this earth can.
