To be honest and quite frank with you, most of you won’t make it as a writer. It’s a simple fact.
You may gain notoriety or recognition here or there. Some of you may even make a few bucks out of it, but the chances of you making it out there as the next Hemingway or Fitzgerald are slim to none. That’s because the writers have gone extinct, right alongside dinosaurs and ashtrays. The world just isn’t the same place anymore. The novel is dead, as is the poem, and the reality is that there isn’t much room out there any more for writers. It’s sad, but true.
One of the consistencies in this generation is the concerning obsession we have with food. We can’t get enough of it—and my old pair of pants (that don’t fit anymore) “know” that for sure. Chances are that if you have any form of social media, then, you’ve seen this obsession firsthand. Even more bizarre is seeing it in person by watching people standing on their chairs and hovering over their plates with their cameras to get the “perfect shot.” Now, to some, this might seem a bit odd or weird – they fail to realize the potential and service that these people provide to businesses and fellow customers alike.
The film industry has led the entertainment business for decades. Even today, when one hears the word “Hollywood” thrown around, they still think of famous movies stars and fancy living—even though the only people walking down Sunset Boulevard now are the homeless. Because the film industry is so popular, there are always people seeking out information on the summer’s big blockbuster hit or when their favorite movie’s sequel is expected to come out. This is where movie blogs come in. But before you decide on out-competing Roger Ebert, there are a few things you must sort out first.
The truth is we could all benefit from losing a pound or two—or in my case, ten or twenty. With fast food joints on every corner and with everyone’s schedule being so hectic, hitting the drive-thru and picking up a large number 3 combo sounds convenient, to say the least. But this convenience comes with a price. The fact to the matter is that with all of the trans fats and empty calories we consume, becoming overweight seems more like a destination than a possibility. If you fall into that group of people who have packed on a few pounds as a result of this convenience, then, you could use a reason to get back to fighting shape.
There are few things in life that are sweeter than travel…actually, there might not be anything sweeter.
Traveling’s all about breaking down the barriers and walls that confine us in our monotony—can you tell that I’m a little bitter? I haven’t traveled in a while—it’s about being free and exploring new places as well as exploring one’s self.
And it’s in this sweet spot that travel blogs fit into. Whether it’s a sense of vicariousness or a taste-test of what may or is out there, travel blogs offer much more than a few hundred words and a couple of photos. They give the viewer a chance to dip their toes in the water and get a taste of what it’s like to be somewhere unknown and unexplored by them.
Is your life interesting enough to write about? For some, they think being held hostage and becoming a star witness in a murder trial is fascinating and new worthy but their regular everyday life is rubbish. Well, life is life. It’s unpredictable and sometimes it’s good to talk about it. Perhaps one’s childhood, especially when it is a struggle, such as when growing up alone, isolated and in an institution will also make for an interesting blog, aside from being therapeutic. Writing about life can really be an eye-opener for a lot of reasons and might just inspire you to do something about your current situation. So, should you write about your life?
