Why It’s OK To Blog For Free

I took a personal step back from blogger world last year, to make room for some of my own creative projects and ideas, as well as to focus on our business and relocation to Barcelona, it’s been interesting. I did a big unfollow of a lot of uninspiring, cookie cutter type bloggers on my social networks to make room for a wider variety of creativity, if you’re bothered, you can read more about this on my Digital Detox related posts. It’s been a breath of fresh air and has provided me with a much more enjoyable and inspiring output from my (now reduced) time spent on my personal social media channels. Anyway, time for one of my rants. This time it’s been proof read several times and I spent over a week pondering it, so I hope it’s more eloquent than past rants.

However, one of the things that really hasn’t changed is the amount some bloggers complain about brands not comprehending something or complaining about brands not wanting to pay them. I’ve mostly kept quiet on this subject because I really don’t want to cause an argument or anything, it’s not my style. But, I really do think it’s important to talk about and speak up when you’ve got an opinion on anything. Negativity isn’t a helpful vibe, if we all focused more on celebrated the positive we’d all be a lot happier & get more shit done.
