The Ultimate Transparency

Scoble’s mom had a heart attack and a stroke, and isn’t expected to live out the week. He’s in Montana at the hospital with her.

Does he stop blogging at a time like this? Nope.

Why am I saying this all on my blog? Cause it’s interesting how family members and friends use my blog to learn about what’s going on in my life and also to help. I got a phone call and email from friends of my mom’s who found me through search engines. (Yet another reason I leave my cell phone and email address on my blog).

Ask yourself, as I have, why he would keep blogging, and making his life transparent, at a time like this? Would you? I don’t have the answer, and I don’t know if I’d do the same, but it’s something to ponder.

Robert, you’ll be in my family’s thoughts and prayers. I can’t imagine how hard this must be, but you’ve got a giant crowd of people that feel for you.

    I agree with your sentiments and your question about whether you/I would do the same… but I had to laugh when I saw an ad for mothers day flowers at the bottom of you blog. Ads are also an odd thing when speaking about content “appropriateness” (is that even a word?!). Too bad your site isn’t sponsored somewhere where you wouldn’t have to run ads to fund it… anyway, blog on… 🙂 (poking at the beehive slightly…)

  2. Yeah, I’ve made the decision to live my life in the public eye. It’s not for everyone. On the other hand, it’s amazing how family members around the world are reading my blog for information. Even after I called them.
