The other week I was looking on the message boards. Those I spend the most time on are the radio boards. One of these boards have been having an ongoing discussion on an incident which happened over 20 years ago. One of the people involved has been giving his account and others have been countering with what could be construed as hearsay.
One of the posters, not involved in the discussion, posted that he thought the person involved in the incident was "full of himself."
It's my belief that anyone in any broadcast medium has to be in some degree, full of themselves, if they are to do a credible job. I also feel that anyone using vocal talents has to have faith in their talents and feel that people want to hear what they want to say. I say that, being the loudest high school band announcer in northeast Ohio. I know people want to hear me, just sometimes not so loudly.
I would even go as far as to say that us bloggers have to have enough self confidence to think that there are folks who want us to post often that we feel that we let our friends down if we aren't posting every day or two.
So being a little full of yourself is a necessary tool if you want to put out a good blog. Use it wisely.
