Do you ever look adoringly at your own profile? →
[More:]I don't mean your physical profile. I mean, for example, your MeFi profile. Sometimes I find myself staring at all the questions I've had marked "best answer" and thinking, "Well, at least I did some good for these few people."
What's pathetic is that my ratio of answers to best answers is quite low.
But there are other web-based ways to adore oneself. One can stare at one's Facebook profile and realize that she is presenting the world with an image of glamor and hilarity that outshines any other. These things may only be true on a computer screen, but one can feel assured that she at least looks
like the cool kid on the block. At least a little.
Back in the heyday of blog-as-confessional, I used to stare lovingly at my comments and my SiteMeter, thinking, "Yes! People love me!"
I can't be the only freak who does this. Can I?
