I’ve had bloggers ask me this because they are worried that their blogging methods are going to scare people away. They don’t want to respin a post because someone will be annoyed and they don’t want to reblog too much because their email subscribers will get pissed off. If they post photos all the time their poetry readers will be angry and if they don’t forget to do the prompt of the week their writing community will riot. We haven’t even gotten to the virtual dog yet.
That all sounds really tiring. I stopped caring a long time ago if people unsubscribed from my site and it happens constantly. They thought I was a poet or they thought I was a photographer. They were here for a food blog… boohoo.
Well whoever “they” are, they will live. That is what I say. If you try to please everyone all you end up with is a bunch of constrained nothing. If you try to please no one at least you are pleased in the end.
Ever since I was a wee one I was obsessed with making websites, blogs, you name it. It was a passionate hobby of mine. I so wanted them to get somewhere. Did they? Not really, but I always loved the idea of people finding fascination in my posts. Oh! Excuse me! This might seem a little awkward, if you look at the last time I posted something on this blog. Yeah. I know. I’m Amy, also known as Lilo to not many people. Nice to meet you!
As I was saying, I always seem to go through these phases in my life where I want to get really good at a certain hobby, and will try a bunch to find one that suits me, and to this day, have not found a certain one that has stuck. So, as the title says, who knew, right? Who knew I would be…
It is funny when you meet bloggers and you aren’t sure if they are a man or a woman. I met TMT (yeah… I am that lazy) in the beginning of 2014 and I’ll admit I thought he was a woman. The modern theologian would be a woman right? No, it is a guy and a remarkably friendly one at that! He writes a little about his life and a lot on religion, obviously, and although I’ve had enough of that for my lifetime I still enjoy his blog because he takes a stance. He doesn’t just share Peter or Paul’s words and try to pass them off as his own, but instead delves into why he believes what he does. He also actively engages, responds, and will debate on the topics he is passionate about. I respect that.
I follow many religious bloggers and their dedication bleeds into their blog. They are often communal writers and it can be a great experience if you find the right social groups to network with.
