it’s so hard to find a good personal blog

when i started my relationship with the internet, it was so easy to find people blogging about their day to day life, opinions, and interests.

nowadays it feels like every blog is carefully crafted to offer articles on a specific topic with well manicured graphics and list formatted tips.

this is not what i love about blogs.

i like to be a fly on the wall and feel like i’m making a connection with the person whose blog i’m reading (that’s why i like foxxy fay’s blog so much). it was as though every interesting person was making content online pertaining to their interestingness.

it’s the same with youtube, now almost everyone makes videos that are high definition with nice backgrounds and no missteps in speech.

now, i’m not usually one to spout “get back to the good old days” rhetoric but there is a very vocal part of me that wants to get back to the good old days of blogging when everything felt more personal.

so i guess i’ll end this post with a call to action:

if you’re a blogger maybe make a personal post and send me a link to it or if you don’t do personal blog posts whatsoever and you know a good personal blog send me a link to that.

you don’t even have to send me a link if you don’t want to but i do want to encourage others to make more personal blog posts because i swear there are people out there who want to get to know you.

  2. I recently started a blog myself, just to have some type of platform for release, talking about normal day stuff which bothers me, making it feel like i’m getting stuff of my chest, and I have been looking for more personal blogs to read, because honestly I do not want to read 20 reviews over the same movie, book or recipe…
    Here’s my blogs link if you ever want to pop in https://toxicangel688109871.wordpress.com

    1. HI! Sorry I didn’t respond earlier, your comment ended up in my spam box. I looked at your blog and I really like the subject matter and my big tip would be to try to use a different more intuitive template. It’s a bit tough to navigate your blog. Thank you for commenting! I’ll be sure to read more of your posts in the future!

  4. Late to the posting party, but I literally just made a post about this, and set off to find personal blogs. I grew up in the heyday of LiveJournal, and had one that saw me through my first y ear of college all the way to the birth of my son, and I miss how freeing it was to just talk about whatever without having to worry about “branding,” which seems to be all the rage with modern blogging. I’m actually currently trying to unlearn a lot of stuff about how I supposedly “ought” to blog and refind/reclaim a more authentic voice. I’m just really glad to see that I’m not alone in this!
