Last night I opened up my BlogLovin app on my phone. It has been a while since I looked through the blog feed. You see, many of the blogs I followed way back when wrote about their days, how things are and life in general. I could always find a blog post I could relate to if I was having a rough day. I could always find a blog to lift my spirts, and it was always great to read about other triumphs. People wrote stuff.

Now my feed is mostly made up of the following things: recipies, giveaways and product reviews and parenting tips. I get it and this is all fine and dandy. I know a lot of you are trying to make money blogging and have many followers. But I miss the personal stories. I miss the community that one could have through commenting on each others blogs. The ‘I have been there too’ or ‘ you can do it’…

Perhaps I have been away from blogging too long. I feel like an old person that is surround by ‘young’ people who are doing things a new way and I am holding on to my old ways. You know… back in the day.. when blogging was more of an online journal documenting life instead of an outlet for companies to advertise their products through the everyday person.
