Why blogging if it’s not for interacting?
I started this blog in 2012, I just wanted a forum to publish my writings, then I discovered that I can do that in a word file on my computer so why bother and make a blog? I misunderstood the blog concept at the time, and the blog was neglected since.
In 2018, I decided to go back, to really blog, to make my writings reachable for as many people as I can, probably some will be inspired probably my words will be useful to some, reach some people’s hearts, give them another perspective of things and also to find people that probably have the same thoughts and perspective as me! People who care to read, to discover your mind, not just to like your posts so you can follow them...
And so it was…
I read other bloggers experience and thoughts and feelings, no I don’t do that because I need followers, I do that because blogging is about interacting, I have my own ideas, thoughts and feelings but so others do.
I believe that everyone can teach me something: younger, older, sad, happy, fucked up, healthy, romantic, realistic, ….I can always learn something new, even if the subject is not my favorite or doesn’t touch my heart, I will certainly learn something new as I strongly believe that my thoughts and feelings are very important and you are totally free to agree or disagree with respect and without bullying of course.
When you write a blog, why you do it? If it’s only and strictly to let them out and feel better, then you can do that in a private file on your PC. You are publishing a blog, to whom you are addressing? Sometimes you’re asking questions and you don’t want us to interact? I find it a bit weird especially when I take time to read others feelings once and twice, sometimes I need Google help with some words, no shame of that…
Then as a respect to the writer, I interact honestly and gladly but the writer is not concerned about your interaction so again to whom you are addressing if you’re too afraid to communicate?
You decided to blog and to spread your thoughts so others can read them and interact, you’re chasing likes? Okay then, here’s a big like for you as you wish, really!
It’s your right to choose your followers and to unfollow certain people or block their comments but when you choose to follow, I believe in mutual respect and reciprocity that’s it. No it’s not a duty at all, if my thoughts are not interesting or even lame, you are totally free to unfollow, don’t worry at all, just do what you feel but respect those who are making an effort to connect and communicate.
I want this forum to be different than Instagram and Facebook where people add you sometimes because of your profile picture (that can be edited and photoshopped), they like posts randomly, they act like zombies sometimes when they don’t even see what they’re liking…
I really read, I read and I put myself in people’s shoes…
I read, and sometimes I just like because I appreciate your efforts but I’m not an expert in the topic you write so I have nothing valuable to say.
It’s my point of view and the way I see things. Doesn’t have to be yours of course!
Why you’re blogging? You agree or disagree with the above?
