Oh Blogger how I have missed thee, over this last year I have been led a stray from you, succumbing to the likes of Wordpress and Instagram while remaining all the while reluctant (ok maybe not so reluctant Instagram wise!) and now I have come back home and here is why.
- 1) Micro blogging - ok it is instant, and addictive BUT I miss doing tutorials and product reviews, and most of all sharing the stuff that I love and is important to me.
Smart phone’s – While I absolute love my iPhone,
it has made me become so LAZY, my
NokiaNikon D7000 just sits on the shelf gathering dust, one of the things that attracted me to blogging in the first place was my love of photography, I miss going out with my camera and I miss HD pictures!!
- 3) WIP’s & FO’s – Blogging makes me create more, it also pushes me to try new things and in my case is a great platform to ask for help :)
- 4) Reading – I miss reading blog post, I miss getting to know a person through their thoughts and seeing beautiful pictures fill my screen.
Looking at my blog feeder, I have noticed that over 80% of the blog I used to follow no longer post anymore, is Instagram and the alike killing off the way we used to blog? Those still blogging how are you balancing the two?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
