IWSG post of 2014. Alex J. Cavanaugh started this ever expanding universe of writers who converge in cyber space on the first Wednesday of every month to share insecurities and support each other in our endeavors toward literary excellence and renown. Visit more of the enlightened souls from this list.
Robin Dunbar, a British anthropologist theorized that the ultimate number of meaningful relationships a person can maintain is 150. I know you're adding up people in your head right now. Not the good doctor thinks that number is directly related to brain size. So even though the internet opens the world for us, does it expand our Dunbar numbers?
The latest numbers estimate there are over half a billion websites one can decide to visit. So my little blog here is one among many, many, many.... I'm one little fish in a great big pond. Aren't we all? As little fish, I think it's important we make our little section of the pond as nice as we can. Fill it with friends, families and colleagues. Like the people you meet on IWSG, the list and the blog.
Do you ever feel like a little fish swimming in a great big ocean? Have your ever heard of the Dunbar number and do you believe it? Do you think the internet might expand that number? Are you ready to meet some more on this great list on other insecure writers?
