It’s been a hell of a frustrating time. Problems with internet connections. Feeling untalented and unwanted. It takes skill to keep up with all the bull. One of these things is social media and pain in the butt, Instagram. I found a way to post from the computer. Read about it here. But no one likes any of my post I’ve done so far. Maybe no one is seeing it. I guess you have to be an attention seeker to get you a like. I could do with one or two but now I don’t get any. Maybe I’m untalented and no one cares. Instagram is the worse social media platform I know. I’m thinking of deleting the whole account. What is the point of posting anything there? It’s so frustrating. Tags don’t help either. I don’t get how you can promote your business on Instagram. It’s all fake with all these empty promises they make. All you do is get lost in the jungle of all those photos. I was totally against the whole place but yet I still joined it. I wish I didn’t. It’s a depressive place. Other social media platform are no joy either but at least sometimes someone does see what I post. Even though it feels like talking to a wall. This post will be on Twitter but does anyone care?! NO! It’s only boring stuff there too.
I would probably lose my mind if I didn’t have the skill to keep up with all the bull that is going around. Stupid people everywhere. People with no common sense. Sometimes I wish I could throw a rock at them. The news is full of crazy people. Or celebrities having an age crisis. All you can think is, it has nothing to do with me. I have a life of my own. People can do whatever they want. It’s no concern of mine. It’s the world that has lost its mind and not me. I’ve been through so much in my own life so nothing shocks me. If it’s about death or drawbacks in life, nothing really surprises me. There is so much sadness in the world so you need to think about what’s good about it. It doesn’t really matter how many likes you get on social media or how many followers you have. It’s the people in your life that matters. They can give you a hard time too but everything doesn’t always be the way we wish. So I should really stop worrying about if someone likes my post on Instagram or not. Or any other social media platform for that matter. Like my dad usually says, take things like humour. In other words, don’t stress about things. There will always be idiots in the world and you shouldn’t take it personally.
After about 1,5 weeks of internet connection problems, I’m back again. So chime my comeback. I wasn’t able to post on this blog. Only One Line Sunday on my tablet. Writing on the computer is so much easier. You really rely on the internet these days. If you have problems with the connection, you get nothing done. I was worried the problems won’t be solved but they did. It’s really boring when your internet connection won’t work. I had to play games on my computer and they got boring pretty fast. When I wrote my fiction, I couldn’t check out the spelling on Grammarly because I had no internet. Those are only a few examples. I couldn’t even do my school assignments because of the internet connection. All the time went to trying to find a solution to the problem.
What I missed the most was blogging. Especially Rag Tag Daily Prompt. I missed a lot of great words. I could always go back to those words though. Now when I’m back I can go back to normal life again.
Realised at about 3 pm that there won’t be a new daily prompt in The Daily Post anymore. Felt something was missing. Every day there was a new word but now there’s is none. Or a new photo challenge every week. I thought what should I write about now. An old prompt maybe? The problem is there is no place on their site where you can click on a random word. It used to be ‘Try another’ but it seems to have been taken away. You have to search the whole archive to find the prompts. It’s just too complicated so maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to blog about old topics after all. I guess I have to restart my thinking. We’ll see how this post will go. This prompt is from March this year.
There are other prompts out there but they will never replace The Daily Post. They’re like a family member who’s passed away. No one will be them because they’re unique in their own way. Of course, it’s not grief. Or maybe it is for someone. They’re not really gone because the site is still online. We can still go back and read about blogging. It will be interesting to see what The Daily Post have posted in the past. If you haven’t browsed it already.
So how are You coping? Do you have the day after blues or have you accepted the loss of The daily post and their challenges? If you ask me, it does feel empty and I don’t know what to do. I always looked forward to the next challenge. But I get used to it not seeing it again. Soon it will only be a memory and I would have moved on. It will be more boring but I just have to substitute the emptiness with other things.
