I hope I'm tapping into how people are feeling about writers' blogs versus actors' blogs with this: (at least from my perspective:)
I think people tend to be more interested in actors' personal lives than the writers' because the actors are out there. We see them. We identify with them and often, people see them more as the characters than the actors themselves. We care about them because THEY are the ones who come into our living room on a daily (weekly, whatever) basis. They're the ones who emote onscreen. They're real to us. Having actors blog about their own families and their characters gives us more perspective about the faces we see on a regular basis.
The writer works the background to put together what we see on screen. In essence, they are faceless. We don't identify with them because we don't see them. We consider them the ones who put everything together. As a result, I think more fans want to hear the behind the scenes stuff from them. Since we don't see them and haven't learned to care about them in a human capacity, we don't want to hear about their personal lives. Our caring and love goes towards the faces we see.
Does that make any sense? :huh1: :lol:
