I am beginning to view the noise from the overload of blogs in my email as annoying.
I used to love reading the blogs I handpicked; feeling connection, kindred-ship, and enjoyment. Now I feel as though I’m wasting time on topics that are vapid and repetitive.
It is possible that my own life is so busy, almost completely with good circumstances that take up time, that I have little-to-no available space. But that would seem disingenuous, because I make time for circumstances and people that are important to me. Reading worthwhile blogs would fit into that category. And there are many of them.
I am also almost foolishly annoyed with people who utilize the Community Pool for self promotion. These appear in my inbox daily asking for feedback on their blogs! Really? Is it just me or is this not absurdly transparent?
I sound cranky, I know, but I’m not. I believe being a discriminating human being is necessary, especially when we have goals to work toward, projects to finish, people we want to spend time with. Life can get downright filled up at times, especially around the holidays, and what we fill our time, minds, and hearts with, matter.
At least for me.
So I gently, kindly, almost (but not quite) lovingly ask us all (I include myself here) to consider what we put out there. I know we all have the right NOT to read something, but how does it assist us to write blog posts that we want people to bother reading and following, if we don’t put measured time into considering what we are saying, to whom, and how those words affect.
There’s a lot of talent out there. Let all of us bloggers put our best foot forward and consider who and what we present to the world around us. Because, my dear ones, it’s the only real way we get to ‘see’ one another.
Thank you, Happy Holidays, and Namaste.
