When I discuss the fact I blog, the first question I am asked is, “oh really, about what?”
So I tell them I have two blogs, one about films and the other about being over 40 and appreciating the finer things in life.
They usually nod and I try to read into their reactions and although, a few pretend they are interested to hear more about the contents, the real reason behind their initial inquiry is to understand mostly how I find the time to blog.
I tell them I make time.
They ask “but why don’t you blog about something important or mind boggling?”
Funny you ask that, I thought it was important, well mostly to me anyway, could it be possible that most of us blog because we need an outlet?
The next question is: “Yeah but there are so many bloggers, how do you stay competitive?”
I think to myself: Good question, is there a reason I need to stay competitive, if I am simply blogging to have an outlet.
“But what about real life stuff? like family, kids, money, marriage, divorce, religion and politics?”
I nod again while struggling to find the words to say without offending the interviewer and then I spill it out. I blog to escape the mental pressures of being an American woman, living in a time where there is no job security, no marriage stability, religion is secondary, and politics are run by money and greed, so if you don’t mind, I would like to continue my blog about appreciating the finer things in life and behind these templates I’d like to stay away from competition as much as possible.
Thank you for your time and thank for reading my blog
