I’ll be honest with you I’ve recently struggled writing content for my blog. I wanted to post fragments of my thoughts about feminism last weekend but the fragments didn’t quite come together in the way I wanted them to, in short the pie wasn’t ready to be served so that’ll have to wait as the subject is sensitive and I’d rather get it right than just do it!
I’ve always wanted to post words that I’m content with. I generously pour emotions through words but fully acknowledge the fact that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea but when I hit publish I need to feel proud of what I’ve posted, not just now but always.
I see a lot of content on social media, I follow a lot of blogs and people and inevitably hold a view for each of them, while the amount of content is drifting swiftly from more to much more, the quality is taking a massive hit. I hold a critical view about other bloggers so I’m constantly and consciously sieving my content till I’m happy with the remains that get published.
So while I have been quiet on Instagram and my blog lately, it’s probably fair to say that I’ve been increasingly thinking about what people would like to see on my blog?
The question is, are we all unconsciously floating towards posts with no content but beautiful pictures, are words not important anymore to broker or buffer any interaction, are we really a visual generation that is slowly but surely detaching itself from words. Books to e-books to audio books, we are definitely moving away from a generation that took time to read, or shall we say have already moved on? With several minutes spent daily scrolling through picture squares of people’s lives and work, words are looked over, or maybe overlooked?
Really interested in knowing what drives you to read a post, and the question is obviously only for those who got this far.
