I did something liberating for myself this week and I’ll continue to do so. After last week when I posted a skeeved and annoyed rant about the healthy living blogging and all that jazz I took a real step back. I realized I don’t, in fact, care. At all.
I don’t care if you love the healthiest of all health food.
I don’t care if you if you eat exclusively super raw nut butters.
Or oatmeal with 12 different strange chia seed toppings in it.
If you eat McDonalds…fine.
If you hate McDonalds and would never indulge in it..fine.
You see my friends, all of these are your personal choices and ranting on my blog isn’t going to change that. Point blank, I enjoy reading your blogs but I don’t live to read them. Similary to not living to work out, living to eat, living to run…I don’t live to blog.
I live to live and enjoy all aspects of my life.
I also don’t care what stereotype of blog you may or may not fall into. Running? Healthy living? Swimming? DIY? Fashion?
If I find your life interesting…chances are I’ll read it. If I roll my eyes…maybe I’ll still read it because I find it interesting.
Here is my own personal opinion. So many bloggers are trying so hard to convince readers that they are not like the rest. They are different. When you spend 9 posts out of 10 doing that then it becomes boring and you are blogging to an audience not for yourself.
I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m not here to diagnose anyone with any sort of issue…if I don’t agree with your food choices fine. Sure you like strange things that I’ve never even heard of that is your choice not mine. I don’t think there is a set “healthy living blog” genre.
What I do think are there are plenty of unhealthy habits in every direction and point blank…I have a life outside of blogging and I’m not here to obsess over that or my blog. Don’t get me wrong, I love my fair share of snarking but I enjoy living outside the internet as well.
