This is my third blog post in a row about blogging.
I had a message for bloggers who fill their blogs with ads here.
Then I talked about how this blog is mostly unedited here.
Today I want to talk about how FREEING it is to just blog.
I’m mostly quit social media.
I have one site that I’m in the process of finding a buyer for that has thousands of followers on social media so as much as I’d like to right now I don’t feel good about dropping or deleting accounts that could be worth money. So I’m still ON social kinda, but my heart is elsewhere.
I’m ready to fully disconnect from both Facebook and Instagram once the site is sold.
I tell you this because when I write a blog post here I write a blog post here. I’m not worried about where I need to share it, what graphics I need to create, what images I need to add.
I don’t like stock images for blogs or even much for sites…they are just not real enough for me.
I gave myself permission NOT to need a picture with every post. This blog is words… if you’re not ready to read then this isn’t the place for you.
I gave myself permission to NOT worry about social sharing. If any of my posts end up being good enough to share on social media it’ll get shared but honestly I don’t know how I even feel about that. I’d rather you send it to someone via email, I think.
I’ve just decided that I won’t add social share links to this site, I’m definitely not maintaining social accounts and I’m not making special graphics for Pinterest, Facebook, IG, etc, etc.
I’m JUST blogging.
Content for you, here, now.
It’s VERY freeing.
I have written three blog posts here tonight after putting my daughter to bed, unplanned. It’s like my ability to write blog posts was suddenly unleashed after I removed all the old content from this site from my 2015-2021 membership site and decided to Keep It Simple and Minimal.
I went back to the classic blog format.
I decided to show the full blog post on the main page of the blog…
Content here and now with no hoops or fancy things.
We’re bombarded too much. I don’t want to add to that. I don’t want to show you dozens of things and have you try to make sense of it.
So… I’ve gone on long enough.
This blog is simply a blog. That’s it. And I love how free and clear that feels. I hope it makes sense for you, too.
