Introducing Blogger Reunion 2021
Who do you know that was blogging back in the early days? Where are they now? Do you ever go back and read old blog posts? Do you, like me, find the greatest joy in the comment section? Do you wonder where your favorites from back then are now? We all started writing for a reason. For me, I was lonely sometimes-I thought things and felt things that I wouldn’t share openly but could share in an anonymous blog (ironically), and when someone commented, it made my day. I wasn’t talented or astute but even I attracted readers just by showing up and being real (yet anonymous). We developed friendships and supported each other.
Were you blogging in 1999? 2009? 2019? Who were your favorites? Who was blogging then that you bonded with in the comment section. Is their blog still up? Can you still contact them? Let’s have a blogger reunion. Let’s get your gang back together! How exactly can we do this? Any ideas? I know that we need you (current bloggers) to read your old blog posts and reach out to the bloggers you loved with whom you’ve lost contact to see if they would be willing to blog another day. And then maybe we can comment and cross post and link and share and all that content management stuff. There are some voices I’d love to hear from again. I’m talking to you, Empress, Quilting IMP, Noelle, Lucky Punk, Elly Lou, Flying Chalupa, Suniverse, DBS, Average Broad, Girl Next Door, Ash, Practical Parsimony, Patty Punker, Bossy Betty, Laundry HMF, MommaKiss and TaxiVodka guy, among others. Where you at? Can you come out and play? It’ll be like old times. I’m also talking to GiGi and CB and other commenters whose comments were blogs, in a way. We need you, too.
Don’t mind me, just getting nostalgic over here. But look up your old blogger friends. Tell them we’re bringing blogging back. #bbb
