Illustration Friday: "Vanity"; きょえい kyoei

Do you ever get the feeling there's a little bit of vanity involved in our blogging, facebooking, twittering etc etc etc ..? ;)

  6. Very much so. I have found from having a blog that I feel listened to. At home, it is impossible for me to share myself the way I want to. Everyone is busy, or they aren't interested in the same things as me. With a blog, I can share my thoughts and get some feedback or a pat on the back. I need a pat on the back once in awhile! Very much! Yes, it is vanity but I've also met such wonderful people it amazes me that I know them!

  10. Wonderfully dramatic illustration.

    Hmm...I don't ever think I thought about blogging, etc. as a vain concept as much as a way for people to feel they can connect with people they don't get a chance to connect with as often, as they'd like because of distance, etc.

    I try not to think of the negative reasons people may connect to social media, because no matter what, you are always going to have individuals who will pervert anything...it is the underside of humanity's psyche.

    Also as an artist, for me, it's a way for me to stay connected with other artists, family and friends who I may sometimes sacrifice for my art.

    Just my two cents...:)

    I think I'd be a much better blogger if I'd think more of myself.
