A World Without Blogging

Mid way through typing out my 'blogging is a fairytale' post I came up with this idea of imagining a world without blogging because lets face it a world without blogging kind of effects not just the insiders but the outsiders too, so I really wanted to get into another deep, meaningful discussion post. So grab your cups of teas and get ready for another ramble!

The obvious
Calling this the obvious because I probably speak on behalf of most of the bloggers out there that the first thought you imagine when you think of a world without blogging is nowhere to vent or nobody to talk to about beauty/fashion things and having to bore all your friends and family with these interests! Well this was my first thought anyways. A world without blogging means no connections to people within this area discussing our interests! it means there is nowhere to become friends with others who have similar interest to you or able to attend any events!

The second sort of obvious
The second thing that springs to mind is keeping up to date on trends, new launches, styles etc. This is probably another serious problem. Without this I can guarantee my skin, hair and body care would be all wrong! Especially skincare as that is forever being updated. Without blogging I don't think I'd know as much knowledge as I do now about taken care of my skin or what style goes with what or even some of the nifty tips and tricks I have picked up along the way! So without blogging I can assume my makeup and skincare wouldn't be as maintained as it is now.

Thinking outside the box, literally
I have written a few things that are obviously coming from a bloggers perspective but I am trying to put myself a year before now when I wasn't blogging and see what it is like. For an outsider this is also effective because even though you are not blogging you are still finding blogs/websites useful for advice, opinions, reviews all that sort of stuff so it doesn't have to be beauty or fashion inspirations it could be recipes, places to eat, personal problems, reviews the lists endless. I remember a few years ago coming across a blogger who posted a lot of DIY and I found it incredibly useful even when I was younger so without blogging for all ages does affect everyone because if there is no recipes then the is no cake - if you catch my drift!

Let's get personal
For me a world without blogging would mean not meeting and becoming good friends with other bloggers, it would also mean not having some 'stress-uni is too much evenings' in blogging chats. I love those chats! I have made some lovely friends through having a blog and some of these I would class as adding to my Christmas card list friends - that is some serious friendship right there. 

Nowhere to turn

I think for insiders and outsiders a world without blogging is affecting all of us in different ways, shapes or forms. What I mean by that is 99% of us all have scrolled onto Google to find out 'why my face is breaking out' or 'healthy food recipes' or 'DIY rooms' whatever it is we have all researched something that we are in need of some help. I have gone onto Google thousands of times for numerous answers and a fair amount of times I have came across a blog post for my answer. Blog posts give legit, personal, detailed answers to what you are searching for most of the time - they are a lot more beneficial than what a short and sweet no image reviews on Boots website are. So to round this ramble paragraph up without these useful blogs we are stuck with resources like Wikipedia or snippet reviews on websites for our answers so I think blogging needs a lot more credit than what it gets given as it has probably helped numerous amounts of people in the past.

Think those are my most significant, sticking out of my brain thoughts on what it would be like to live in a world without blogging. It is a scary thought to think of if you take a step back and really get your brain ticking on this subject! but just to get you's back into reality blogging is still well and truly up and running, thankfully!

  3. It's an interesting things to think about. I don't know if we'd be affected to much, or rather I don't think I would be affected too much if it didn't exist. It's just a nice little hobby for me :)

  4. I completely agree with you on a lot of this. It's amazing how much of a impact it makes doesn't it?! I used to live from magazine tips and my friends were never too interested but having a world where I can talk to people about it is amazing!

  5. I cannot imagine what my make-up routine or personal style would be like without blogging. I'd probably still be using Dream Matte Mousse - yuck! And that doesn't take into account all the wonderful, inspiring people I have come to know through blogging. I'd never really thought about how much blogging had effected me but it's amazing, awesome post xo
