I miss posting about day to day stuff and feelings like I used to. Believe it or not, it’s the whole reason I started blogging in the first place. I know I’m gonna sound like a total blogging Granny when I say this, but remember the simpler times? You know, before Pinterest, the great Facebook explosion happened, and social media-money-making-crazies ever really existed? When people actually READ blog posts, instead of just skimming through them quickly, looking for the “next big/best/cool thing” and pretty pin-able image?
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE working with other bloggers and amazing companies, that will never change, but the crazy amount of pressure, emails and demand to have a specific response to a post or number of repinned images, likes or shares when just simply trying to write about something I feel strongly about… has slowly killed my passion for blogging AND reading others’ blogs.
Like I said before in this post:
“I’ve determined that it’s easy for me to be the girl with lots on my plate, mind and to-do list; but not-so-easy to be the one who says “no” to people or “thanks, but no thanks” when opportunities arise. While progression in life is a must, the pace at which you choose to take it can either help you grow, or quickly have you putting into perspective what and who, matters the most.”
