Rural Blogging

Well, here we are, a really different blogging situation than I’m used to, just, rural living at it’s best. And worst.

I was really privileged to have pretty god and fast net, and to be able to afford it, and now, well, still have the internet so I’m quite lucky in that regards but the quality is unfortunately nothing to write home about.

Hopefully that will change at some point in 2021 but we’ll see, until then, it looks like I’ll be going to places with free wifi to do a lot of the things I’ve usually done from the comfort of my own couch.

And that sucks.

So that explains why I scheduled so many posts, I can’t get into a lot of detail, but just know that I now feel the need to talk about the fact not everyone has access to wifi, which I have always thought that at least in the places I lived it should be freely given to all, and how that can affect people without.

In my case, it’s there, I’m lucky, it’s just not great. But there are more people without net than you think. There are potential and existing bloggers, podcasters, instagrammers, all with so much talent to share but little to no means to do it.

Being a book blogger, I heavily rely on my net and I wonder how others in my situation or worse do their jobs and do it even better than me a lot of times, I mean I don’t wonder that last part, I’m a lazy butt, and not super talented with net things, but I am in awe of these others!

HOW DO THEY DO IT?! I Cannot stand when my laptop takes too long to open my email, I am constantly one second from tossing the whole thing out the window lol.

What does this mean for my blog? It means I must constantly keep up with scheduling my posts, I write them down usually straight into the blocks on WordPress but this now means on notepad on the laptop or on an actual notepad (thankfully I have plenty of notebooks, though most are too pretty to use…*sigh*).

This also means I make a lot of my graphics all at once to have them at the ready on the laptop instead of risking Canva not loading. It also means it’s just a game of chance when I use bookstagram lol. Just gotta do what I can with the time I have with working net until it goes down again.

So if you are in a similar boat to mine, please, feel free to vent and rage in comments if you are able to but if not just know that I am here raging for you.

Yep yep that’s me although I’m not in a rural area, I’m just… primarily mobile internet. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to do it efficiently but I remember back in high school I did it all offline at home and then when I was able to get to a place with internet I scheduled it all. 😂
