The mystery of life as viewed from my world, does blogging have a limited shelf life or is it just me?? I find a blog, I love said blog and then the blogger starts slowly fading away…..first it starts with missed blog posts, then it hits the I hate blogging post phase, then it becomes more sporadic and then pretty soon another blogger I love just disappears. I think I am in a Scy Fy movie at times, ya know that movie where everyone keeps disappearing and changing and no-one but you notices. ( no paranoia here folks its like conspiracy theory at its prime, and how is that for random movie references??)
Seriously, is there a life span, I am betting on three years, that seems to be the average… makes sense in a way, I mean you start this little hobby, then it gets bigger and becomes more than a hobby and then BHAM, something in your life changes, a hubby. a baby. a puppy, a house, a job.. something, anything that all of a sudden makes you resent this little world that we have.
Now the conspiracy part of me wants me to unfollow all my favs so that they also do not stop blogging. If you are on my Daily Reads, please “Don’t Go”…. ( what another pop reference, this time an oh so popular song.. or maybe only popular to us oldies lol)
I know blogging is time consuming and i know we all have those little things in life that often must take priority but let the kids feed themselves.. ( Kidding people just kidding) Life changes do affect our priorities and I am the first to recognize real life sometimes has a way of changing what our plans are ( hence two weeks of minimal blogging) but is it life changes, personal changes or something else that causes one attention to wander.
The secret of life, the map to the fountain of youth and what makes you bored with blogging, if only I held the key I would be a rich, rich person.
So how long have you been at this, me good gracious it will be a year in a months time ( now I have to start planning something spectacular), I still love it and I love the engagement, wish I knew the ultimate secret to tons of followers and numerous blog comments ( other than quality posts people, I am not sure I believe that one anymore). To be perfectly frank I have seen bloggers who are no longer blogging still increase in followers, WTF, I know right., and yes I do keep stats of other bloggers, I am a number cruncher guys and that is what I do. My success meter is in fact measured by comparative stats. ( I am being totally honest here, looking for your stats, I probably have them). Can you imagine how frustrating it is to know that a blogger than has not posted in weeks/months is still growing… really I have the numbers….It’s true. So its not all about quality, or quantity it is some magical dust that gets sprinkled around of this I am quite confident, successful blogging is created by magical fairies or maybe unicorns.
I am still hoping the magicial unicorn will come visit me but in the meantime, I still love this hobby of mine, totally love it, so much that yep I now have a rebel and this weekend I got an IPAD ( good lord why did that take so long) and to top it off I do take a picture of every meal/outfit/flower and drink that catches my eye and plan post series in my head ( now to implement that plan), so hopefully I do not catch the “Bored” bug for a long long time.
One thing for sure I have not yet grown tired of outfit selfies.
