I don’t keep up with other blogs like I used to, but some I remember because they had that special something about them. They could be written well, give an audience a need by visual aids such as video, and are well designed.
Now, they changed.
I don’t care if there was a book deal, some company is interested in you and you made it big, and you can’t say anything on your blog because some company’s lawyer is watching. Where is your freedom in expressing your self? Why is your writing being sensored? All for the money and glory? You have become one of them, and no longer relatable.
Relatable is the key word that you should live by. The reason you have an audience because you are no different than them. Your life is unscripted and you are writing or portraying an art without thinking what will happen, and have others to enjoy it.
I was subscribed to so many. I was even a fan on Facebook for some. I watch videos or read what they wrote, and they have become a marketing tool for them. They also have employees and now a small company, and they are no longer writing what they feel.
I want to read real blogs. Make money for fun, but don’t turn your back to us and think we are just pawns for you to make money and that’s it.
