I could drop off the face of the earth right now and no one would notice. Or, it would take a while for anyone to wonder where I was
And, yet, I’m quite content.
But it’s the element of being a big olde nobody that makes me curious why anyone — and I mean ANYONE — would possibly be interested in me for any reason. Someone who is a “Public Relations Specialist” searched for me on LinkedIn and that’s something of a big deal for me.
And then there are a few people who have become near-obsessive readers of this blog who I find both flattering and puzzling. Why is someone from Silicon Valley obsessing over this blog? Doesn’t make any sense.
I think back to the few times I’ve actually interacted with non-nonbodies and sometimes I wince. But other times, I look back fondly that I got to share a moment of time with them. In another day, I probably would have been someone who got stars’ autographs.
As it stands, though, I’m just a nobody. An anonymous nobody with a lot of dreams. That’s it.
