Recently I read a message board post. The author was asking if personal blogs were a thing of the past.
My first thought? I sure hope not!
My second thought? I have no idea.
I mean...I initially wanted to shout NO WAY!
But then I realized that I honestly don't know.
There aren't as many comments anymore. But that extends to all blogs. All galleries. Things just aren't the same. Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself.
One of my creative resolutions for 2014 (besides MAKE MORE) is to comment on blogs more often.
I feel like Feedly makes it easy to just look...but not to look through and comment.
I'm a lazy blog reader. I like to read, take inspiration, and leave.
And that's okay sometimes. But not all the time. Blogging is a lot of work. It's the best kind of work in the world, if you ask me. But it's work nonetheless. And this year I resolve to leave more comments.
Back to the matter at hand. I know I'm not the only "lazy" blog reader. :) I think most people are like I am.
And it's totally FINE. I don't do this for the comments. That would be kind of gross, anyway. Though I do see how that would be really easy to get caught up in/sucked in to.
I blog because (as I've said a million times before) I LOVE IT. It is my therapy. My voice and my saving grace. There have been many lonely times where it has been my only connection.
But I often wonder if I should be sharing more crafty projects. Those take the most (and best!) work, but seem to get the least feedback. Travel posts are the same.
I think Instagram and Pinterest are a big deal right now. And I LOVE those two places. Facebook? Not so much. I'm pretty disenchanted with FB these days.
Okay. Rambling over.
With that being said...who are you?
If you are reading today, tell me about yourself. Where are you from? How long have you been reading? Tell me anything.
Tell me if you think blogging is a dying art form. Do people still read? Do you just look at photos? Do you just immediately press that "x" on your browser or feedly feed?
I'd love it if you'd join my roll call today. :)
