Changes in Blogging from 2007 Till Today
Being an old girl on the blogging network, things kind of pass me by! technology moves so fast these days that I rarely can keep up with everything! we all have busy lives…some of us are computer savvi whereas others aren’t! I used to be very interested in blog and web design and although I still am…it all baffles me and I just can’t stand the pace anymore.
Blogging has changed in the 16 years that I have been writing mine (on and off), we used to share what we made, how we were feeling…money never really came into it…we just blogged because we loved it. These days there are so many blogs out there…all touting for business promoting themselves telling you how to promote yourself…there is just stacks and stacks of blogs all looking the same….oh i am not knocking them! but…
Blogs used to be enjoyable little magazines where you fell in love with the person behind them…you wanted to comment because you were generally interested in their day…what they had for breakfast, what crochet project they were doing, what they did with the kids on holiday etc…
The first blog that I started to read were the likes of Blueyonder Ranch, Stefani blogged about her family life in America and when I used to read all her stories, it really did take me to a place of escapism…her life seemed so complete…a perfect place to bring up children…you could almost smell the fresh pine air!
I don’t think people realise what a constant job it is to carry on with a blog…to make it interesting as time passes and styles change…a lot of the people that I was friends with when I started, have stopped blogging altogether now!…it’s such a shame!…Instagram has played a big part in that, many of my friends are on that platform now. It’s a lot easier to just add a couple of pictures and write a few sentances and yes, I do get inspired by the people on there, but most of the time I get over-powered by all their ideas that it just makes me feel overwhelmed and I end up creating nothing!
So I decided to go on a hunt to find some of the good ole peeps that are still out there blogging away in the old style..the style where blogging started!
Yep there are still some of them left! So come and have a look…

Since creating this list…some of these blogs have fallen by the wayside even just this year…but it is still worth having a look at them…as they have left content which is to die4.
