Is blogging dead? I don’t think so. I am full of gratitude for the responses I have gotten over the last few days since I started writing blog posts again. Thank you!
I miss the early days of blogging, when bloggers were a community. I met many incredible and interesting humans through the blogging community. I think social media (almost) killed the blog, the same way it killed reading long articles and books and basically our general collective attention span.
I used to pride myself in being able to communicate in 140 characters or less. Or, being able to carry on a conversation with one person across multiple channels. I used to think multi-tasking was a super-power. I no longer feel this way.
I am ready for a slower pace. Unless you are working in an emergency room does everything have to be so urgent?
This summer, I am enjoying spending time in my garden, feeding the birds, going on morning hikes, visiting with neighbors and preparing healthy home cooked meals. I have a new found appreciation of all that is around me in this present moment.
Thank you for following along on my blogging journey.
