Or you could even call it Old School Blogging. I miss it. I don’t think I’ve ever strayed to far from it but I miss it from other people.
I’ve been blogging for over 6 years now and believe me you can look back at my archives and see that not only my writing, but my photos have come a long way. But I believe that to be a positive thing. It’s when I found myself writing just to get comments or clicks or likes that I found the joy of blogging diminishing. I even went as far as taking a little break last year.
So many of my friends that I met through blogging have quit. Gave up for one reason or another. I miss them. My reader that was once full of stories about family life and homestead happenings are now full of organizing tips, Pinterest links and giveaways. I still follow those other blogs but nothing is being said. They remain silent.
When I blog I want it to be because I believe in something, something I’m passionate about. When I have a giveaway it’s because I want to share the love. When I give a hint or tip, it’s because it’s helped me personally and I’ve got to share it with my peeps. When I share a funny story, it’s because I want you to laugh right along side me.
This blog is a reflection of me and who I am. That can’t change. I’ll never have just one niche. I’m too complicated for that. *smile*
Money Saving Mom wrote a great article about Breaking the Blogging Rules.
And you can find another great article here about going back to old fashioned blogging.
So you may never find high quality photos or front pages news here but you will find a gal who’s passionate about living her life out (Lord willing) to the best of her ability and who feels the need to share it with you because she knows you sit on the edge of your seats waiting for the next big post. *cough* She also knows her way around a run-on sentence.
So there you have it. My post, without a cool picture in it or anything. I’m a rebel and don’t you forget it. *smile*
Have a lovely day
