My Memory Lacks Initiative…

Yeah, so I’m already dead on the inside
But I can still pretend with my memories and photographs
I have learned to love the lie

Ok, so the lyrics of this song sound incredibly depressing… but the upbeat nature of it and some of the random things they say make me giggle.  So… bear with me.  This is my mood on blog post #3 of the day.

You’ll have to forgive me for being the largest blogger hypocrite ever today… when I made post #1 today and mentioned I didn’t understand how some people could do multiple posts in a day (except for those who sacrifice photo quality), I was kinda intrigued and inspired to try it myself.

I hate it.  I’ll be lucky if I can sit down and do one per day.  Let alone multiple per day, several days in a row.

I just feel like I got NOTHING else done today.  Granted, I’ve been awake since 7pm my time yesterday, so the longer I go, the more I slow down with exhaustion.  But seriously.  I’ve pretty much been standing in my dance pit tabbed into Photoshop, or writing, or looking up SLURLs, or tp’ing to MIC to take pictures, or tp’ing to an event to figure out more information about it… I couldn’t imaging allowing this to consume my entire SL.

There’s so much else that I enjoy doing, I couldn’t sit here all day every day just blogging.  I can do it for short periods of time, like now, to catch up on how far behind I am on everything, post-wise… but I don’t think I could do it regularly.

I’d never get anything else done.

This is the part where some of you tell me, “Well Tivi if you didn’t yammer on every time you blog, then maybe it wouldn’t take you so long to post the shit and you could get multiple posts done in a day AND do other things.”  But that’s just it…

a website containing a writer’s or group of writers’ own experiences,observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other websites.” — Dictionary.Com

From what I read… the very definition of a blog includes writing.  This has been one of my pet peeves for awhile.  People who literally post nothing but a picture or two… on a white background, no less… and then style credits.  And usually incomplete style credits – another pet peeve I can rant about later.  Like… where is the creativity in that?  Where is the originality in that?  Where is the art in that?

Where is the BLOGGING in a blog like that?

There is someone I know, and I don’t want to use her name just in case people misunderstand and think I’m talking about her negatively (I’m NOT… I love her to death and wish more people would follow her example).  She keeps a blog, on a blogging website… but then she does additional pictures that are not blogged and keeps them solely on her Flickr.  She doesn’t call them her ‘blog’ and her ‘Flickr blog’.  She calls them her ‘blog’ and her ‘photo journal’.  THAT, to me, is accurate.

Much like events are cropping up all over the place and coming out of the woodwork, bloggers seem to be coming out of nowhere as well.  Everyone who can operate the SL camera and start a WordPress or Blogger site and post pictures and sometimes credits is trying to call themselves a blogger now and it’s just… frustrating.

What happened to the days when bloggers actually… you know… BLOGGED?

  1. Actually Like this one better than the last one, for me when I blog I describe the outfit and or where I shot it or what inspired it. I list the credits except for my post today it was all about Belle, so yes I took the lazy road most traveled lol. I also am not a writer, so if I don’t shoot the chit it is because I have no chit to shoot or I suck at writing and just pass, afterall on my blog it is not even about me but about the designer I am blogging. Hey but that’s just me 🙂 Hugs Tivi

    • And I totally get that. There’s something to be said for someone who recognizes, “Hey, writing isn’t really my thing, but I still want to help you!” and they focus all their effort on the photos to display items in the best light possible.

      And then there’s people who are doing it simply because it’s a lazy way to get free stuff. Those people are the ones that make my head spin. Lol.

      Thank you for visiting again, Spirit. At least I know I’m not talking to myself. Lol.

      ❤ Tivi

  2. lol, yes I do read your blog, I don’t always comment but do try to hit the like button if I like it. I am with you on most of what you said and I also hate blogs that don’t list credits or list them but don’t add links, or are just a snap shot that was rushed. I remember when I first started blogging my photos were not the best, so I spent the last year just working on that. Free stuff…not this girl, 132k is plenty and also why I keep my sponsors at only 6 or so, I love love love them. Just say no to free stuff hehe

    • Yeah. Crediting is a whole other pet peeve that I’ll discuss later. Lol.
      I feel you on the inventory count. I need to take, like, a week where I’m not doing anything else, and just organize my inventory. (And yeah, it’ll probably take that long, if not longer.)
