A LITTLE BLOG UPDATE

I’m so behind with reading blogs, and replying to comments right now. I’m sorry for that. ✌🏼 But I’m saving all of them to be read later when I get the free time 😊 I’m having so much fun interacting with other bloggers, but right now I’m taking an online course which I will probably write about. I’m kind of excited about it, I feel like I’m in school again lol.

Anyways, thought I should just post a little update here and letting you know that starting today, all blog posts here are just scheduled posts until I finish the course. So, I’m not fully here if you see a blog entry from me but I will surely check in from time to time. (you’ll know it when I start liking and commenting on your posts😁)

27 THINGS COVID-19 SHOWED THE WORLD BY PORTALKINI.COM

I don’t usually browse my Facebook feed nowadays, though this one post caught my attention as it was the first thing that I see when I opened the app. It shows some realizations about the world during this pandemic


1. USA is no longer the world’s leading country.

FACELESS VOICE

Voice of the past
keeps calling me,
a man in a mask
wanted me to see
a terrible history.

Wars raged inside
the house they lived
many have died
it became a battle field.
The man able to flee.

Running away
was what I did.
The man did say
the house is haunted,
face of the voice I didn’t see.


This is my cute attempt for Penable Challenge. The topic is haunted house, I took the topic literally and wrote this poem from a psychic’s perspective 😆. I hope you like it.

WHO AND WHAT YOU FOLLOW ON THE INTERNET REFLECTS WHO YOU ARE

via FB Page of Finding Tom

Several weeks ago, I watched this video of a vlogger named Tom Kuegler on his page Finding Tom. He talked about one infamous video of another vlogger where he shamed and degraded a public transportation driver, it went viral and Tom went on to say that this vlogger did a terrible thing but still gets a lot of attention.

Tom stated in his video that there are good and bad content creators out there, and we need to be careful who we follow online.

This is so true in todays time, there are plenty of content creators that get backlash from what they did but still get attention from the public, they even get more famous for it. It’s all about publicity right? Tom also pointed out that these “bad content creators” get confidence because of the attention that they are getting, and they immediately think that every thing that they do is a great idea. The validation they get from the views, likes, and subscriptions fuels them to create more stupid content. Just like what Tom said, it takes away the attention from genuine creators who’s being cautious and mindful towards the viewers’ perception on what they intake from their video. These bad vloggers/bloggers get so much validation that they forget the content they make and how it’s going to be viewed by others, they think every one will like it just because they created it.

One more thing I hate about these bad content creators is how people still manage to waste their time on them, giving them attention and fame. Like, why? I mean you hate what they did so much but you still watch them? You still follow them? You create memes about them, the hypocrisy in that is way off the roof. I personally think that who and what you follow online says a lot about you, I mean you follow a certain topic because it resonates to your ideals right? I mean, for me I follow a certain personality online because of what they do, and how great their personality is. Deep inside, I want to do what they do or I want to be friends with them. My point there is that why do people follow a “bad vlogger/blogger”? What do they get from them? Like, vloggers who do dangerous pranks? (There’s a reason MTV Jackass is not suited in today’s time anymore). What do people get from it? Entertainment? Really? You enjoy making fun of others? Okay, that’s your choice, and that says something about yourself.

Many people now aspire to be a youtuber, blogger etc. But I seriously think that being an influencer has a responsibility on what they create and how it’s going to be viewed, and they should also aspire to be a role model whether they like it or not. I’m not buying what they say that they are not trying to please people. Basically, that’s what they signed up for when they decided that they want to be an influencer or internet famous. They were given a platform, they are a public figure, they take the good from it but there is also the bad in it, and whether they like it or not being cautious on their every move is part of their job.

The point of this post is to tell you that be careful who you follow, be careful of the content you take from social media and the internet. It may seem like it’s not a big deal but it is a big deal, it affects you in little ways that you don’t even notice. What you take from what you follow creates this image in your mind, that you unconsciously and suddenly want in your own life. It creates fake ideals that you’ll become upset later on because you don’t have it or it’s far from being achieved. What you follow online affects how you see yourself, and right now internet has its ways to bring that down. All I’m saying here is that don’t pressure yourself to follow the trends or to be updated all the time, follow what you love online and read things that will benefit you. Make internet and social media a healthy space again. 😄

I want to know who and what you follow online? Which celebrity? What topics and trends are you into? Let me know in the comments 😊
