So…I have to admit, I am a bit discouraged and very much disappointed. I have been spending some time researching different blogs and what the best way to approach a blog is. Sadly, it appears I have completely missed the blogging boat.
It sounds as though blogging to share experiences or opinions is a thing of the past. Blogging has become less about the craft of writing and connecting and more about promoting products, giving positive reviews and kissing booty to make a buck. The general consensus appears to be; no one actually reads a blog for the words on the screen, most don’t even read a post in its entirety (which I have learned firsthand as my husband admitted he only partially read my last post) rather they skim looking for bold or capitalized words only comprehending part of the story.
The whole point of starting this blog was to write and be read but alas it would seem my words will likely fall on deaf ears or rather blind eyes. Just another reason I truly believe I was born to the wrong decade.
I don’t want to promote products to simply earn a dollar, or write about things that are not important or impactful. I want to share with you (if there’s anyone out there actually reading my words) my experiences, in hopes that my life’s bloopers and blunders will be helpful, meaningful or comforting to you in some way.
The technology of today is amazing and useful in so many ways but I find myself wishing it were possible to go back to a time when books where read by hand, letters were read on paper and connecting with people was a little more emotional and heartfelt.
Day time daydreaming…
