📝 Blogroll: Share your blog posts!

I’m never quite sure if I should pimp my blog posts here or not. I’m not putting my own stuff down but I just blog about what I’m watching or reading and what I’ve done the past week (which is usually but not always just working and then watching or reading stuff). So many of you write such wonderful, in-depth, well-researched and well thought out articles! It’s more like “one of these is not like the others” :upside_down_face:

Anyway, I have my Weekly Wrap Up 08 posted. I read some stuff, watched some shows and, just to spice things up, bought a bunch of stuff this past Bandcamp Friday.

Please don’t feel like your blog posts need to “measure up” to anything! We all are here blogging for fun :heart:

It’s always fun to learn about the food & drink brands available in different countries. The herbal flavour sounds interesting!

Adding another comment here that I enjoy all the styles of posting here. While I don’t yet blog I take inspiration from all of you about the topics you choose to write about. I see great value in just writing about your day or a new snack you tried out. I like to think of it as kind of like “slice of life” posting. I honestly love some of the shorter posts people have put here about little snippets of their day or new experiences!

yessss this is such a great blog post! I’m gonna link to it from my site.

As someone who is very offline, I sometimes advocate being very offline to friends & get this look of FOMO from them like, if they’re not online then they’ll be Cut Off From Everything. But as you say, the idea that Everything is on the internet participates in the profound vanishing of anything which is not online.

One you don’t explicitly mention: not everyone is online.

As of 2019, almost 1/5 of Britons report that they do not use the internet - predominantly older people. 40% of those earning less than £12,500 do not go online[1]

And Britain is a comparatively prosperous place, on a global scale. So if you’re imagining that anything and anyone worth knowing is online - huge chunks of people and their perspectives just don’t exist to you.

(& I also think about this whenever I critique Spotify and people are like, ‘but it has everything’. It certainly does Not have everything, it just disappears anything it doesn’t have)

ohhh you should definitely share your thoughts if your thoughts are about DISCO :star_struck: Cowley is so good, School Daze is a great album.

I’m actually writing a thing atm about how to relearn to access music online, the importance of a music blogging ecosystem. only by writing about what we are listening to (watching, reading, etc) can we outcompete the idea you ‘must’ engage with algorithmic recommendation systems.

Sorry to be pedantic, but a one-paragraph blogpost can be concise. If a post is concise it’s because it expresses a lot in few words.

I wrote this a few weeks ago, but I hope it interests you. I was thinking the past few months about the fast paced nature of some media. As well as what the aftermath of grinding on social media felt like (as a creative), and where the future could potentially be at.

Yeah, a blog post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. It can just be a picture (ideally with alt text) if you want.

i think you’re missing that starbreaker was just correcting your word choice, not disagreeing with what you were saying. :) concise is short and made your sentence a lil’ confusing. you essentially said, “blog posts don’t need to be long and short!”

I like this idea and I look forward to reading it!

It’s OK. Like I had said, I was being a bit pedantic.
