It’s currently after midnight and my body wants everything and nothing to do with sleep. I never struggled with sleep until after having my first kid and ever since I can’t seem to master it. Oh well. It could be the diet coke I drank entirely way too late, or the nap I snuck in around 4 pm. Either way, I can’t get my brain to shut off.
Also, for some reason I am feeling motivated to deep clean the whole house at this very moment, when my eyes want to shut and the sound of the vacuum would wake everyone else who have zero sleep issues. Why I can’t feel this way during the day makes no sense to me. Does this ever happen to anyone else? Hopefully I’m still motivated in the morning, because my to-do list is fairly long.
Currently I am listening to this little guy cough in his bed, fearing it will wake him at any moment. Break my heart.
This was him earlier this week, insisting on drinking my Shakeology. He literally had huge tears running down his face if I tried to take it away from him. Guess it’s that good.
So since I can’t sleep, I guess I will mention that I often get super bummed that the blog phase has phased out for 95% people. A friend on Facebook this week mentioned he missed when his feed was full of life and random statuses rather than articles and recipe videos. I admit I noticed it too and miss it as well, but you know what else I miss? Blogs. Remember when almost everyone had a blog?? And they’d write about life and stuff?? Whatever their hearts desired! Is it just not a thing anymore? Maybe Instagram came along and it was more convenient? Or maybe some people got all famous and those who weren’t felt dumb and quit. I miss when it wasn’t about popularity, selling something, and glamourous/trendy/helpful content. I miss the real stuff! Did people think their life wasn’t exciting enough or what is it?
If it means anything, I think that it is still very okay to blog if YOU want. A normal, not so popular or pretty blog. One where you write whatever you want, share whatever you want, and it can be homogeneous and beautiful or a big fat inconsistent mess. Who cares? It’s doesn’t have to be the greatest and most famous. But that is just my opinion.
I have way more thoughts on this but my body finally agrees 100% on sleep pronto. I’d love to talk more about this subject so tell me why you feel like people stopped blogging (the avg. family blogs). Also, what direction do you see social media going in?
