Social media landscape is very different nowadays. The focus is more on video-drive platform. People hardly read blogs these days because Youtube videos and podcasts are the preferred way to get content. Many of my blogging heroes – Bianca Gonzales (her last post was in 2017), Patty Laurel and Cat Juan (her last post was on Sept 2019). Most of them have shifted to creating content in Youtube and Instagram.
Why do I continue blogging when no one is reading blogs anymore?
In my blog post: My Blogging Journey in Restropect, I wrote:
I see clearly now that my blog is my outlet and my source of inspiration. I will accept blog projects that only aligns to my blog vision. I will blog meaningfully and intuitively. I will blog for my own pleasure and not to gain popularity. Going viral is far from my blog objective. I just blog out of pure indulgence as a writer, a lover of beautifully woven words.
I blog out of my sheer love to write. I will blog even if no one will read it. If you enjoy reading my blog posts, you are welcome to stay and browse around. I now know that my direction of my blogging journey is towards sharing of my experiences as an expat, a woman exploring life’s surprises. I am in an adventure in life, living in a foreign country, with my husband and three sons. And who knows where life would lead me and my family in days to come. Now after our adventure in Singapore, we have embark in yet another adventure here in Oman. I been sharing our life here for two years now. I also love to write on wellness, mental health, productivity and self-improvement. Stick around, if you want to read more on these things. I may restart my Expat Diaries Series where I interview expat around the world of their expat lifestyle.
I have also been active in Instagram lately. You can follow me at https://www.instagram.com/littlemisshoney/. I have completely abandoned Twitter and I put Facebook in the back burner. I been experimenting with Instagram reels recently and it seems like fun. It is very much like Tiktok but in Instagram.
Will I ever start a Youtube Channel?
In the Technology Adoption Life Cycle, I am often the Late Majority or even the Laggards when it comes to new concept. I am never the Innovators or the Early Adopters.
Sharing my thoughts and interests on the blog is already unnerving, how much if it is in video form. I will be so conscious of my mannerisms and the idea of video editing is giving me already a headache. But we will see….
Maybe on 2022? Let me know if I should start a Youtube Channnel or not….
