Help! I'm in the wrong universe!

I read a blog tonight.  I'm really trying to get people to read mine, but I thought reading someone else's might help me understand why I don't get readers.  I did!  I don't live in the same world with the people around me.  I meet them on the street and at church, but they live in another universe than I do.  I'm amazed that I could understand most of the language, and the pictures were good, but this lovely girl lives in another universe.  Her language and references and goals are foreign to me.  Maybe I shouldn't try the computer thing at all.  Maybe I should read my books and watch "The Closer" and go to church.  Blogging may be beyond my reach.

I'm old, no doubt about that.  I am located somewhere in the 1950s or 60s; I like this new world, but I sure don't understand it.  Blogging may be the dividing line that separates the winners from the losers.

Well I'm reading.
Nobody lives in the same world as anybdy else. I'm 30 and I don't live in a 20 year old's world or a 40 year old's world. I don't live in my children's world or even my husband's world. That's why we have books so we can learn about different perspectives, different worlds.
Why do you think it's divided into winners and losers? I didn't understand that line.

RE: your answer on my blog: It's funny. A friend of mine always says that kids make communication much easier. Everyone wants to talk about their kids. Put two parents together, they'll be able to communicate.
