I hereby give you my best bloggerpose... Or something like that
Oh, so you are one of those(!?). If you mean the people being very fascinated my astrology and turning slightly into a which, then yes. Absolutely. A sustainability nerd? indeed! But in this instance I am talking about the category of a blogger. influencer. Because clearly all of us bloggers fit into one category! You hear my heavy irony, right?
But I am… A blogger, if you wanna call me that. At least my blog is – today – celebrating its 3 years birthday, and if having a blog is a definition of being a blogger, count me in.
For me, this blog has always been an outlet of sorts. I think I have mentioned it before; its function is to serve as my very personal, very public diary. For all of you to read. And I like it like that. It is a way for me to ponder on different subjects. Or rage or marvel.
My head works very fast, and sometimes I speak long before I think. I mean loooong before. But this blog is a way for me to – sometimes – take things a tad slower. Just sometimes.
Alright, now back to the start. What is it with people and boxes? Categories? And prejudice? I understand the boxes I guess. Categories help us understand the world. But bloggers? influencers? I think you can find a million different blogs and personalities in this category, and not one fits with the other. Just because we use social medias (like most of… everyone), we are not one type. I don’t get angry – in general, actually – but I do wonder why I have to keep on defending my hobby(!?) if we can call it that. Uh, or when people hear that I don’t do dairy. Also: “one of those”.
This is not ment to be a complaining post. I’m just bringing up this theme that I am giving thought to, because it might get you thinking as well. How do we approach people? What do we bring in to the room? What expectations or reservations do we reflect on others? I think these are important questions to ask oneself now and again, because I believe it changes us. For the better. It has the potential to broaden peoples mind and add respect and love to conversations that might conflict.
So there you have it… Think a little on that… And while you do, I’ll give you three of my favourite pictures from IG.
Btw. Have you noticed I have a highlight called bloggerlife? It’s ment to be seen with sarcastic glasses on.
Uh and if interested, you can read my posts from the last two years here (one year anniversary) and here (two years and counting).
