Dr Tanya is our host for the Blogging Insight series. It’s an interesting question this week and you can find our more here.
Today she says:
” Blogging, I love you no matter how out of fashion you are. “
I have never been a follower of fashion and do what I feel comfortable with.
It was Hubby’s idea I started a blog way back in September 2013, and mine has come a long way since then. I have my readers to thank for that.
The thing I have always said is that I will continue for as long as I enjoy it, and at the moment, I can see no reason why that should change. I consider my regular readers my blogging family, and love the interaction and different views they contribute and share. I have cried with them through the loss of pets, grieved with them for loss of family, tried to be supportive in times of illness and have benefited from their support, concerns and thoughts when I have been at my lowest or when fighting my own, and my Hubby’s, health issues.
How can that possibly be considered ‘out of fashion’?
At times like these, families are apart and socialising is minimal (or was here in the UK until Saturday), and there are many who are housebound for whatever reason whose blog is their lifeline to the outside world and human contact.
Who wants to read something that is trendy but hollow with their flashing lights and fancy gizmos but no substance? The blogs I follow are filled with kindness and consideration, comments being the icing on the cake (missed a cue there) and I have found a lot of friends here.
Sure, I appreciate those blogs with all the pretty trimmings (I wouldn’t know where to begin to do that actually), but being a WYSIWYG kinda gal, welcome to a picture of our beach as my header and enough varied content (I hope) to interest my readers.
OK, OK, OK, I’ve revamped the 3TC a little bit with different pictures, but that was because I got more than a little bored with the same one every day for a year!
Blogging might or might not be fashionable with the latest in technology and communication devices, but I can’t see it disappearing quite yet……. well, certainly not this one.
