This is a post about blogging, specifically blogging at this particular point in time for me (if you end up reading this in six months time it will likely make no sense whatsoever). Terribly self indulgent, in many ways negative and totally not meaning to sound snarky about a whole section of the blogging community.
Trends. Life hacks. Fast food. Social media. De-cluttering. Clean eating. More and more we are influenced by the media. Informed how to do things easier, faster, look better, healthy eating to the extreme with the elimination of whole food groups. Blogging also has trends, messages that filter through to us. Find a niche. Travel blogging. Pro-bloggers. Get your arse on YouTube. Social media distracts from all angles, conversations draw you in, photos on Instagram either inspire with their content or drive pangs of jealousy. We live in an age where motivational quotes like 'Do what you love and money will follow' inspire people, despite the cold hard reality that most know for the majority of people that simply isn't the case.
Is it any wonder then that with all the noise telling us how to be better, to cut corners, speed up, fit more in, that so many of us are feeling a sense of not being able to keep up, of needing to make some fundamental changes, the feeling of 'not knowing what we are doing' or even of 'belonging'.[fa icon="fa fa-external-link"]
