I’ve been blogging and journaling since my tweenage years! Always writing about the things I was obsessed about or recording the feels of the day in my livejournal! I never had to think about promoting myself or trying to build a following. I wrote because I wanted to write about what I was obsessively geeky over (I haven’t changed!!).
I’ve been thinking a lot about what blogging means to me and what it is today.
The Blogging world has changed no doubt about it. With the rise of social media influencers, everything looks and reads like a magazine. I know there’s nothing inherently wrong about where’s it is going. It’s just the sign of the times.
But there’s a reason why I don’t read magazines anymore.
Sometimes I like to go back and read old entries in my blog and random journals. Where was I at the time? what was I doing? How was I feeling? I find the more interesting parts are the times when I am completely flummoxed by a problem, trying to solve problems, arranging my garbled thoughts somewhere to decipher later… maybe not.
I think I’d like to share more, maybe life things I’ve learned, but then again I don’t want to dole out advice or give tutorials on how to live because…. I don’t always have my shit together. When life throws me a curveball, sometimes I’m still figuring out whether to dodge it or take it on! But darn, that pesky curveball – sometimes I’ve not done anything and it has already hit me in the face.
So it seems there may be no perfect conclusion to this post but I think like a page in my diary, I’ll leave it like that.
Today Life may be Styled, but it doesn’t have to be.
