Do people still blog? Do people still consume blog posts?
Is it considered archaic, if one blogs?
Is blogging retro, already?
Well, those nagging questions could have some semblance of modern-day truth, going by the social media consumption. People are eating easy-on-the-finger apps. And then there is the shift to everything visual, because visuals get more hits and likes and what-have-yous. I guess, I fell quite dismally in the same trend trap. There was a time when it was easy for me to drop my emotions and suggestions on Zomato. I wasn’t blogging. It was easy to live off Instagram because a picture is worth a thousand words, and IGTV because a video is probably worth more words. I wasn’t blogging.
But then, I have always been a retro guy. I could try a new hairstyle, but I would never get rid of my long sideburns. And so then, I return to my blog, like one returns to their reliable, loved but dusty, old car. I still like to read and write. And blogs help me to do that. More so, if it is about food. And this global lockdown to COVID-19 forced a lot of people to cook, and I was one of them. After a long time, I am writing on my blog. And I feel just as good as a bar of nutty dark chocolate bar.
