BLOGGING, IS IT STILL IN?

Yep. It's so long ago that I started to blog. It's a norm, it's something I really look forward to doing but not get to do because I am just to occupied. Not complaining though.

I started actively blogging since I was in college. I can cook up a blogpost every single day and don't mind stamping only selfies in each post. Yes, I was that vain.

But blogging is just a platform for me to let to, to talk about the things I love, the experience I was going through living far away from home and some drama along the way. I was naive, I didn't have a theme for my blog and I post everything like eating rice. I never thought of the consequences and just publish everything. That was long time ago.

Up until now, I still don't know what I want for my blog. Thus, I put the tagline, lifestyle blog because I just love everything. I'm the one who does everything, I don't stick to one thing and one thing only That's the problem. I do love how I can still write whatever I like, state my opinion and just overall, write.

I feel blogging today have changed in so many ways. Some people doing it for the purpose of money alone, going internet famous etc. Mind sets are different now. Quality of photos plays a huge role into gaining readers and even flat lay is important! I feel so outdated.

Blogging is not something you start today and achieve tomorrow. It's a long process. It's harder to gain followers through blogging than other social medias like instagram, facebook, twitter etc. probably because blogging takes up a lot of time and time is something people have so little of nowadays. Everyone is on the go, always on their feet because time ain't waiting for anybody. That is why social media gains more favor than the old school blogging.

People can easily state their opinions right on instagram and twitter, they cut to the chase, only the highlighter issue and points; no ramblings whatsoever. It's easy. It's even easier to make money through social media nowadays.

So, is blogging still in?

I'm not giving up blogging anytime soon and I feel people like you who reads and people like me who writes is what makes blogging still up and running 'till this days. Blogging is like writing books. It's a very long state of mind, your own and readers tends to only highlights the things they feel related to but if one important word doesn't make sense, you read the whole sentence. One sentence is an extended version of the other, it explains, elaborates, it makes readers want to continue reading. That is why books are still around even though digital ones are easier to carry and doesn't takes up too many space. The experience is different.

With that I'd say yes, blogging is still in. Why? Because there are people out there who are amazing writers, helpers who puts amazing write ups, this writers who just have a presence in their writings. This people who deserve audience. Because highlights is nothing without a good base (sounds like I'm doing makeup).

So, hello you who's reading this and thank you.
