Dreams, TV Cooks And Online Personas

I had a dream featuring Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.  She was nothing like she is on her blog or on her TV show.  She was actually kind of crabby and mean.  Is my subconscious trying to tell me I don’t have to be genuine with my online presentations?  What kind of persona would I like to adapt if I’m not myself?  If I chose to be dark and scary, I would have to maintain that image, right?  Same as if I was cheerful and perky.  It seems too difficult to keep up a false persona.

On the other hand, if I’m genuine and just being myself I’m all over the board.  Today I’m this way, tomorrow I’m the complete opposite.  Is Meredith’s blog snarky and sassy or dreamy and mystical? Is she funny or angsty?  How would my blog be classified?  Where would it be relevant?  What about SEO?

I’m probably overthinking this, but I woke up from my dream with Ree feeling disappointed and disillusioned.

There’s one person out there I hope to God is different than her public persona.  If I had to live with this person in real life I’d go out of my flippin’ mind.  When she’s on TV she talks to her audience like they’re a bunch of five-year-olds.  My guess is that in her real life she’s angry, bossy, and generally a shrew.

Enough slander, already. I’m just saying this morning I woke up wondering who I am and how I should present myself. Ree, I love you and I don’t take how you treated me in the dream personally. Nancy, stop wagging your butt around and talk to me like an adult. To myself I say, stay cool and be free.
