It's been so long since I posted to my Blog. I've felt a pull to it lately. Don't know why, I just have. Maybe a return to my social media roots?
Before we were all Tweeting and Facebooking and Instagramming, my online buddies and I used to trawl each other's Blogs for updates of each others' daily lives. Now it's a lot easier to log into one place and just read/post 140 characters, or upload a photo and we feel connected.
I remember when we all started Blogging and there was so much backlash about becoming disconnected to the world, that our lives were disintegrating into our computers. Well look at it now. We have gone even further into our computers and smart phones, and feel like we're connected even more! But really.........how connected are we?
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Facebook and Instagram (I'm not the biggest fan of Twitter), but I do engage more in the details that can are included in a Blog post, those that can't really be included in others forms of social media.
When I'm reading a Blog, I feel more connected to the author (well as much as you can looking at a computer screen). When tapping away at a keyboard, I feel more connected to me. I feel like I need to write.
I've toyed around with keeping a pen and paper journal, but it's just not doing it for me. And this isn't about becoming one of those 'mummy bloggers' and making this a job (hell no!!!), it's about me tapping away and clearing my head. And if me clearing my head amuses, interests or even inspires someone, in the process, then so be it. It's not my aim to have a huge following and have advertising down my sidebars, my aim is to be happy, and be me.
Thanks for reading.
