Blogging has changed! It was already in the process when I quit, but even more now....
a lot more!
Quite a few of my old friends stopped blogging completely, like I did, which is sad, but as you well know, I can't really say anything.
I did it.
Then there's the few blogs out there that haven't changed at all. Now those are the ones that make me feel all cozy.
You know the ones... in fact, you'll find a few of them on my side bar ;)
Anyway, as I was catching up with one of my favorites, The Cottage Nest, written by Jen, I came across a post called 'The Good Old Days' and it really hit me... I missed logging on to see the coziness of my friend's personality coming through. I think it's a little sad that everything is so impersonal.
"Here's a chair that I redid".....
"Here's the kitchen that I redid"....
"Here's this all white house"....
While we're on the subject, why is everything white? Is color against the law now? That trend started about 6 years ago (or more) and I was hoping it would be over by now. Not because it's not pretty sometimes, but because it's basically the same no matter what blog you click on. It's honestly like being on one long blog with different names. Now if that's who you really are, well then that's great! But don't fall into the latest trend just to get readers. That's never a good idea, trust me.
But I digress....
And that my friends is what this blog will be.
I decided it today.
Not that I could be anything but me ;)
I can't promise that you'll never see an ad on this blog or that you'll see every waking moment of my life, but what you WILL see is a reflection of ME. I don't care if I have zero readers or a hundred, that will never change.
I miss the 'cozy blog' and I plan on this being one. I hope you enjoy it, but mostly I'm hoping it will encourage people to be themselves again.
Nothing is more important than being who you really are and following your dreams.
Dreams are important after all :)
What do these pictures have to do with anything? Nothing at all, but I thought you might enjoy my little rant more if there was something cute or pretty to look at ;)
