Happy Blog Day! An international celebration It was last week, August 31st, Thursday. I normally post on Mondays, so, saying congratulations to blogger-friends today!
Blog Day was first celebrated in 2005. August 31 was chosen because 3108 can be read as “blog”. I started my blog on Christmas 2005. It was just out of curiosity, because at the time blogging was new. Many things happened since then, to all of us. I can say that blogging changed many things in my life. I got to know lovely blogger friends, some in person, and it enriched my life, learning from them. I dare to say that I got to “know” not so nice ones, too, that used bullying to “grow” (do they grow, really?), hacked my blog and some that stopped reading due to different life views – it’s absolutely OK. Two things I love about blogs: the information we get, how much we learn from bloggers! And the amazing positive support we get from many lovely people around the world!
Some people say that blogs are dying. Instagram took the place of them. I didn’t even register on Instagram – another platform to feed, I don’t want to do so, too busy. Obviously everybody is busy, too; maybe one day I register there when some personal things give me more time. Blogs may be dying, but they are still breathing And well, I think. They give us so many opportunities! Knowing people, interacting, sharing new things, professional opportunities, supporting each other – we do not have to be competitors, the world is full of that. Instead, we can be friends!
Do you think blogs are dying? How has blogging changed your life?
Wishing you a beautiful week with many smiles! Thanks for the sweet comments!
