Because these things have been on my mind, I want to write them down here, in my space, where I share my thoughts.
I’m not new to blogging – my archives go back as far as 2010 – and still, I struggle to find my tribe.
Many times when I get to know other bloggers, they decide to close their blogs.
Right now, the trend seems to be to cut back on blogging days, which includes reading other blogs.
I do take blogging time off, most commonly on Jewish holidays, but I like to catch up on what I’ve missed when I come back online.
I’m always looking for new blogs to read and leave comments on.
I admit when I leave comments for bloggers, I hope they will visit my blog too.
I don’t expect other bloggers to comment on all of my posts, but a line here or there so that I know they are reading is always welcome.
I can be petty. If I have been commenting on a blog and I never receive comments back, I will probably stop reading that blog.
Of course, I don’t comment on every post I read either.
I blog because I want to. I like writing and photography and sharing my thoughts and photos.
However, it does make me sad when I share something important to me but it doesn’t interest anyone else.
I also love when my blog is chosen for sponsored posts and opportunities. If I can make a bit of money off of doing what I love, I’m all for it.
I don’t often get chosen for the opportunities I apply for.
Do I want to give up? No, I want to get better.
