Sometimes I wonder what's the point of blogging.
Am I going to continue this until I'm 50 or 60? Nobody is going to want to read that.
I don't do very exciting things and I don't have anything that original to say. I don't have any beauty secrets or jaw dropping DIYs to reveal.
I know some people skim and don't read my posts by the comments they leave, sometimes so absurd I'm actually a bit embarrassed for them. Sometimes they are directly in relation to the pictures rather than the words, and in that case why don't I just have an instagram instead of a blog? What's the point? I'm sure I do things like this as well, I'm not perfect.
So tell me, what is the point of blogging? Why do we do this?
For me, I love the people I've met and the friendships I've made. I like having somewhere to talk, whether it's about books that only appeal to me, or about certain subjects that make my blood boil. I love feeling like I have a small spot in a community that is all my own and I didn't meet you all through my best friend or husband. I did this on my own, and I feel less lonely because of it. All expats should have a blog. But the point? I have no idea.
I am not comparing my blog to others when I say this, but there are so many bloggers out there that are fabulous writers and their posts just amaze me. They are entertaining, funny and real. When you are a little fish surrounded by amazing pretty rainbow fish, what's the point?
I don't read the very first blog I ever read anymore. Her blog is too unrealistic and I can't relate anymore. She's very popular and probably makes all the money, good for her. But I get bored reading her posts so I stopped. I doubt she noticed.
So I ask myself, do I want to get that big? Can I? The answer is no to both of those. I genuinely don't think my blog will ever be that popular or huge, and I don't think I'd want it to be. The pressure on those bloggers to continuously produce good content must be ridiculous. Not to mention dealing with negative feedback, which as a small blogger I haven't really had to deal with yet. It's one of the reasons I've been too scared to really sponsor anyone or have a consultation with Helene because I'm afraid of what will happen. They'll say my blog is silly or not worth it, I should stop now, or people will come to my blog via sponsors and be disappointed.
Anyway. This post doesn't really have a point, let alone blogging. I am not complaining or hosting a pity party, honestly just throwing my thoughts out there. I guess that's the point.
What do you think is the point of blogging?
