Here’s a Thought

Mmmmm… 10 straight hours of sleep does wonders for my disposition.

I’m going to busy at ArmadilloCon today, because being Guest of Honor means that I spend time in the real world, not online. But here’s a conversational topic for you:

I was speaking with award-winning writer Mary Robinette Kowal today, and she noted that today is the “blogoversary” of her site, which she started four years ago (so go over and tell her congratulations). I mentioned to her that I remember going to visit her blog after I had met her (which was two years ago), and then said to her:

“I actually get annoyed these days when I meet smart and interesting people and then they don’t have a blog.”

Because, frankly, if you are smart and interesting, why aren’t you blogging? Or at the very least, occasionally posting something to your Facebook or MySpace pages.

So, the question:

Are you surprised these days to find smart, interesting people who don’t have an active online presence? Or is it really just me?

Discuss amongst yourselves. I’ll pop in when I can.
