It is a well known fact that music performers lip-sync their live performances. What’s so interesting though is the uproar that occurs when people find out, especially if it’s publicly and under embarrassing circumstances.
There’s just something about being truly authentic that we value and adore, and when we find out you’re not, it’s typically the opposite of a good thing.
But trying “too hard” can also produce a similar affect.
I wonder what the balance is in the blogosphere?
The last thing that I want anyone to think is that I’ve not been authentic and I’ve done as much as I can (in my own mind) to provide as clear a picture of who I am through my blogging (although I admit that the blogging medium isn’t even close to a “perfect” medium). I know more can be done.
It’s easy to know and to see what’s not authentic, but how does one make sure that they are being authentic for others, especially through blogging?
Perhaps that’s too much thought for one day.
