Like every day while I have my breakfast I check my emails, to organize the day and see if there is anything new there, will any good news come there? And in the middle of 70% of emails full of discounts/spams there was the next invoice for the blog hosting (impeccable so far, by the way!) And came to me that thought “another month and I wrote so little…” accompanied by that sigh that seemed more like disappointment than a simple mechanism of the body itself.
Between one sip and another, other thought came up, why do I still blog? The internet is really not the same anymore, I’m going to be a little nostalgic now, okay? But in my time, when I arrived here, really everything was bush, forest, call it as you wish, but everything was a challenge, it was new, a real immensity to be explored! And at that time people were more human and less professional, blogs were like that too. on the weekend I was looking for personal blogs and honestly google only gave me professional blogs or blogs merely aimed at “how to make your blog pop up” and without real content. really, I think I’m getting old for this new era of the internet.
I know I’m not the only person in my generation who thinks like that, unfortunately the friendships I made around here were falling apart, which is absolutely normal, people change, thoughts change, interests too. Maintaining a personal blog (even more so nowadays) is a survivor’s thing. Talking to everyone and at the same time not talking to anyone is crazy thing! Not to mention that from time to time things get boring, consuming 15-second content is more pleasurable than reading itself.
I don’t understand people who don’t like to read!
But then why do I still blog?
The truth is that I’m a crazy survivor ◡̈ don’t get me wrong, but I like it here, despite almost 0% feedback! I’m from that time when twitter was cool, you could say any nonsense and everything was fine, a time when people were the same both in real and virtual life – believe me, there was a time like this!
Going back to the question, I blog because I like it! Because I feel at home! Because I’m free! I have wings here, you know? I confess that I tried countless times to adapt to have new readers, I tried to fit in where I thought it was right, but like everything in my life — if I do something where it’s not genuine, it never goes forward, it’s no use, I lose interest soon.
I believe I will continue like this, blogging for everyone, for no one or just for myself ♡
