# Two years ago today (has it really been that long) I said I was "very much an adherent of the 'life model' of blogging". Looking back I don't think I was truly there; I was still in "Book 2" of my blogging journey.

Now that I am in the next phase of my online existence I'm still not entirely convinced that I am following the "life model" or if I'm even getting there.

Maybe I just don't have an exact picture in my mind of what a life model means for me. Or, maybe I'm being too harsh and looking for something that's not there.

# This passage from "Reality Hunger" by David Shields rings true and describes blogging for me:

Suddenly everyone's tale is tellable, which seems to me a good thing, even if not everyone's story turns out to be fascinating or well told.

It doesn't matter if you're not a veritable wordsmith or don't have the most interesting life, you can still post and share as you see fit - a gift we can all give and receive.

I suppose that is what the "life model" of blogging is really all about.
