Can’t believe this is edition 40 of moto monday. Truth be told, I’m kind of getting tired of this series. Bet you weren’t expecting me to say that, huh?
I suppose this “epiphany” moment came last week when I became practically obsessed with Jenna Kutcher’s blog. I started following Jenna on Instagram (I think?) after realizing she was a Wisco-based photographer. But I never knew she had a web presence until I serendipitously decided to visit her website. Her voice is so approachable, it’s like reading a good book you don’t want to put down.
I miss writing like that.
Blogging is so weird because you have bloggers like The Skinny Confidential who are so staccato and short with posts (which totally works for her brand and tone!), but then I see posts like Jenna’s and I’m like, oh yeah. I’m a writer. I really enjoy writing…I forgot!
I suppose I started shortening my posts because of time–time spent writing the post and time you spend reading it.
I know the internet is reprogramming our brains to have shorter attention spans and figured I needed to play into that. But then, I go and read blog posts like Jenna’s and realize the insane power of a compelling story, which trumps all sorts of various attention spans.
With that in mind, I might tweak these moto monday posts starting next week…maybe making it a bit more personal? What do you think? I haven’t really decided yet. TBD.
For now, though, enjoy the 40th edition of moto monday, link-style:
