When I started blogging 5 years ago blogging was like….
Not very many giveaways and a group giveaway was unheard of because to enter a giveaway you had to leave separate comments for everything
No one had sidebar sponsors aside from maybe a blogher ad and those were reserved for MEGA HUGE bloggers!
People commented and responded more
Seeing a sponsored post was something you just did not see because blogging wasn’t about making money
No one was very focused on numbers and the only way to really measure numbers was through google friend connect
Pinterest was invite only
Instagram did not exist
Neither did google plus
Stumbling was reserved for drunk nights home
People did a lot of centering their words(guilty) and changing font colors mid post(guilty again)
Cartoon headers were HUGE
Music on blogs drove you nuts
Blogging was like….something we did just for fun and because we really wanted everyone to know about our weekends
It was the best day ever when your blog got 10 comments
Linkups were something you did every single day
The thought of 1,000 followers seemed unheard of and something that would never happen
I do not remember there being blog cliques or maybe I was too new to notice
I love blogging but sometimes it’s funny to look back 5 years and remember when blogging was like…. a different world!
When did you start blogging? What do you remember it being like??
