In The Ordinary

Give me the ordinary times over the times when life is way more exciting than I can handle. Boring can be best when chaos is all around you. I find that the world needs more ordinary people, places, and things. Be grateful for the opportunities to enjoy simple pleasures. Rest and renewal of your mind, body, and spirit can do you good. Life is found in the ordinary.

The Friendship And The Following

Thanks for continuing to follow along here. I hope what you see here is worth your time and attention. The thing about a personal blog is that you post about what’s in your head (in my case most times weird stuff) and on your heart (the world needs more heart). Most of my stuff is a hodgepodge of things which is what blogging does well. Once again thanks for your friendship and the following. Peace to you all.

The Blogging Landscape Now

I have noticed there are fewer places on the Internet for self-expression such as blogs. At one point and time, there were many places such as Multiply, Yahoo 360, Xanga, Typepad, Livejournal, and the like. Today it seems there are sites that are more dedicated to commerce and selling stuff. Even WordPress.com is going in that direction.

Blogger, one of the OG platforms has not been significantly updated in years. There are platforms such as Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly that have become more business-focused. Indeed the landscape is very different than it was in the 2000s and 2010s. For a deep dive into the history of blogging check out this article from Notre Dame of Maryland University.

Vlogging on YouTube, TikTok and even Instagram has become increasingly popular.

I don’t want to see Instagram and Facebook as the only places for sharing and community. Social media and networking are important. The more outlets the better. Let’s hope for more outlets in the future where old-school blogging still has a place on the web.

When My Blog Gets Serious

I write about silly and sacred things here. Sometimes serious stuff has to be written about too. Keeping my blog fun and positive isn’t always possible. No matter what I hope you will still enjoy my post no matter the tone or subject matter. Blogging about life’s ups and downs is definitely keeping it real.

Thank you, my friends!

Positive And Negative

My posts are largely inspired by the world around me and the times in which we live. I do hope you are not bummed out by your visits here. I am a positive person most of the time but like anyone, I have my moments where negativity is the appropriate response. Thank you for visiting here and for your friendship.
