The miracle of the Internet

Today, I run Cooking with Vivi and I used to post stuff, this is the right term, stuff, and then expect people to love me for what I wrote. It does not work like that.

A few years ago Octavian told me that you cannot be loved by the Internet unless you show love. You need to make comments, congratulate, visit other websites and, in general, interact. You need to develop at least semi-personal relationships with bloggers and people who share your interests. And then you may have a shot at being taken seriously and listened to, and of course, linked to.

Today I realized that I have never been driven by the need to get people to visit my websites. I am not showing off or feeling superior, but I simply cannot sustain such an effort. I cannot interact, I cannot comment on similar websites because I don’t give a damn about what other people post on their websites, similar to mine or not. I read a few blogs of people I admire, but very rarely find useful info on new blogs. I post on Cooking with Vivi because I owe it to my Grandmother, I love photography and I love to cook for my family. I am a very busy businessperson, so sharing my cooking experiences seemed to be just right. I post on because I enjoy writing. And I miss it like hell.

Anyway, the point of all this is that my blogs will stay simple and unadorned, they will reflect my life and no one else’s, they will be underground and atypical (to quote a dear friend) and they will not follow any rules, patterns or recipes. I am happy with who I am, with what I do, with my life and I won’t change a thing.

Meanwhile, please visit my blogs…that was a joke ?. Love you, my true friends <3
