In the Depths of My Heart

My friends if you were to look into the depths of my heart you would find my faith in God (which has been renewed lately), a deep and amazing love for my wife, love for the rest of my family, and the heart of a writer. I do love to write, and in some ways it’s who I am.

Yet it seems to me that blogging is less popular than it was. I’m going by current trends on my site and some others as well. Photography blogs still tend to do amazingly well, yet many bloggers are loaded to the gills with social media. There are so many platforms now, it’s simply amazing!

And yet I’m not on any of them. There’s nothing wrong with social media, and that’s not my point anyway. It’s just that people are a lot busier than they were say, 3 years ago, or even last year. Some of my readers are part time, which is much different than when I started.

And now we are all streaming videos a whole lot more! What’s you’re favorite show? I lean towards science fiction. Anyway, now we are yet pulled in that direction too, with less time for blogging.

I really appreciate each of you!

I’m going to ignore trends for days of the week, and simply post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and maybe a quick photo on Sunday. That’s plenty for me. The heck with stats. My posts will be a little different too, with more fiction mixed in,

Remember my post the “Interpretation“? I loved writing that!

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. I too do not feel the inclination to follow the trends, if it is not something that flows from my heart. And my heart does not smile much if I try to keep up with what is out there. So I am content for now with one weekly post on Mondays and no videos yet for me. And also I prefer to be full time readers of my favorite blogs than be a part time reader of many. I am not sure how I will be able to keep up consistently with that, I will simply follow my heart.

    1. Thank you for your beautiful and heartfelt comments! You are always very encouraging. As you said following your heart is most important! Peace and wonderful blessings to you and yours.

  2. I am not on social media and that’s okay if it’s what we do not require. Photography is an eye-catcher and works perfect for everyone 🙂

  3. There are still many of us who still blog regularly. Amazingly though, there seems to be less during Covid lock-downs. I would have thought it was the best time to write. In saying that, I share the room with computers with hubby and working from home left me mostly in the garden.

    Love the fiction. More please of that. 🙂

  4. I also don’t follow the trends. I don’t do any of the other social media trends (tweeter, Instagram etc.). I’m content with the wide variety of knowledge and arts here. I will look forward to the days you do post here Nico. Sending blessings your way.

  5. You are not alone my friend. We too, are not on other forms of social media, and I only use WordPress to share some of my photography, which has also introduced me to some wonderful friendships. But like you, we will not follow any trends simply for the sake of it. Blessings to you and your family!

  6. I think we should not ignore trends but only go with them as far as they match the blogger. Only if you do it in your style it will reach the people you are meant to reach. If we start blogging only with the intention to reach a wide mass, the heart of the blog would be lost. I love to see your heart beating in all your posts, Nico.
