Hi everyone! I hope you’re well ❤️ A while ago I noticed that loads of bloggers I used to interact with have disappeared off the face of the Earth (just me being dramatic there but it’s partly true! 😂). Many have deleted their blogs whilst others might possibly come back 🤞It’s been on my mind in a nostalgic kind of way so I thought I’d write something about it.
It’s like that game you play when you pass people in the street and wonder what kind of a life they live. I look back on these past friendships + acquaintances and wonder where they are now, what drove them away and if they ever think of their blog anymore. Maybe they want to come back but feel like too much time has passed or that they don’t have the same ability to write as they used to.
All bloggers have lives alongside this other world we create, some probably stop blogging and don’t give it a second thought but I think a lot are pulled away by other responsibilities and wish that things had been different.
Back when I created my blog I was surrounded by certain faces and never did I once think that there would come a time when I’d be the last one typing (unless they’ve created a different blog, in which case I will find you…sure we all know why they left my stalkerish self 🙌😂).
It’s just weird that so many are gone and kinda sad but I guess that’s life. People walk in and out (virtually speaking here 😂) creating space for new faces that I appreciate all the more because of the fact that they could very well leave too.
Many of them left a lasting impact with their work and I would have liked to hear more of it as those words weren’t gibberish, they meant something to myself and countless others. I wish they could have continued to be heard.
I feel like things held a different vibe back then and a lot has changed without these bloggers even if they didn’t think (+ continue to believe) that their absence would be noticed, I’m feeling it enough to write about it. They helped shape who I am through their honesty, positive thoughts and support.
Perhaps there’s a chance that someone who used to blog is reading this and is unsure about whether or not they made a difference, you did (Even if it wasn’t planned). You haven’t been forgotten and if you decide not to reappear then know you left a mark on someone out there and be proud of yourself. Thank you for sharing your mind’s thoughts and I wish you the best of luck on all of your future ventures 💫 (hopefully one of your endeavors will involve coming back one day).
Have you ever lost contact with blogging friends? Also if you haven’t blogged in a while I’d love to know your opinion from that other perspective! Thank you for taking the time to read this, take care and have a lovely day ❤️
