I know it’s Friday morning, but I’m about to drop a truth bomb on y’all: the blog world is really sucking right now.
If you don’t agree with me, that’s awesome! Please tell me what magic fairy dust you are using and how I can get my hands on some. If you do agree… well, I think it’s time we do something about it.
I was looking through some old posts of mine and noticed I used to get upwards of 20+ comments on posts. Now? I’m lucky if I get 4. I know that’s my fault because I don’t post as regularly as I used to and I also kind of announced that I was not blogging anymore. Totally understandable. But I’ve noticed the lack of comments and excitement in general on other blogs and I want to know what the heck is up. The whole blog world seems to be totally down in the dumps. In an effort to try to get back into the swing of blogging, I’ve been really good about keeping up with my Bloglovin’ reader and reading blogs every night. I’ve made a conscious effort to comment on blogs and interact with bloggers on Twitter. I just miss the good ole days. I want to know how we can get back there. I need your help.
So, I’m blogging every day in September. Well, every weekday. (If you’re like me and need to schedule stuff in advance, that’s what I’ll use the weekends for. Small steps, people.) If you want to join me, I’d love you to help me revitalize the blog world. Obviously you don’t have to abide by the prompts for each day, but I just want to start writing again. I feel like this would really help. (Obviously I can’t do this without mentioning how amazingly helpful Jenni’s “Blog Everyday in May” was and how much it inspired me. I’m not copying but instead paying tribute.) (Don’t kill me.)

There are no “rules” to play but it would be pretty great if you mentioned in your post that you were playing along, or include the button below. There’s also going to be a way to link up every day, so I hope you’ll leave your link on the blog so that others can see who else is participating. And commenting on other posts is definitely encouraged. (Use #BlogEverydayinSept on Twitter and IG to spread the word and find other posts.) Come on, y’all. Summer’s over, so let’s build the blog world back up.
