My Dirty Little Secret: I Don’t Care About Your Blog
I can’t take it any more. I have to tell you my dirty little secret. It’s been gnawing at me for too long.
I have to talk to you about your blog.
Your blog is beautiful. You exhibit photography in creative ways and year-long challenges.
Your blog is delicious. You talk about cooking and Thanksgiving cookies and what you made for dinner.
And I don’t care.
Your blog is filled with surprise endings and heartwarming stories.
Your blog is informative. I know the Top 10 of everything.
Your blog is filled with secrets, inspirations, and open letters.
And I don’t care about any of them.
Your blog has so many new strategies to learn and “things I should know.”
Your blog gives me ways for winning, easy fixes, and dire warnings I can’t afford to ignore.
And I’m trying to care. I’m trying to care about the pictures and the food and the books.
But I can’t.
I’m still going to browse your site. I’m still going to admire your art and imagine the aroma of your vegetarian lasagna. I’ll still glance at your crafts, and I’ll “like” what you are About.
But I just want you to know: I don’t care about your blog.
I care about you.
