Blogging Insights — New Format # 27

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.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Yes, I agree with you Di.

  2. Lovely post Di. And true. I like fiddling with such things, so perhaps my blog is a ‘pretty’ one (how big headed of me to think so) but I agree that the foundation is just as you describe. A community ‘family’. I’m glad I came to your site and made a new friend! 🙂
