Andy Warhol was wrong. No one is limited to just 15 minutes of fame. We can all be famous in our own right, for as long as we want to be. It is a matter of time before the lure of possibly being heard draws us like moths to the flame of celebrity.
Some choose outrageous dress, grooming or behavior, others extreme sports to make themselves known. Some try their hand with more traditional outlets: music, acting and other forms of art. Yet others decide to become active in politics at some level. But what of those of us who find outrageous behavior distasteful? That value life and limb too much to go for extreme sports? Whose talent or looks are not good enough for the arts and entertainment world? That don't have the time to run for and perform in political office?
For the rest of us, we have blogging. To that end, I hereby set off on the flight surrounding that flame.
