An Unforgettable Journey: You Won’t Believe What Happened!

Dear readers, this is the shortest post I have ever written.

In this fast-paced world, we humans have become so busy that we no longer take the time to read things; instead, we jump to assumptions. Take, for instance, Facebook, where people seem more interested in watching videos than reading written statuses. Even Vlogs have surpassed written blogs in popularity because everyone is always in a rush. This trend became painfully evident when I recently posted something, and it left me utterly disheartened.

As we continue to evolve, we are changing as a species, and this shift seems to be a part of that change. However, it breaks my heart to witness the gradual loss of the beautiful habit of reading.

In conclusion, let us remember the joy of reading and cherish the worlds that unfold within the pages.

  1. Well, I am guilty of getting a ‘quick fix’ and not reading as much as I did previously. I need to break that habit! Thanks for the reminder.

  2. I’ve alwyas been one to read articles and short stories. Many of my friends are reading tons of books but I just can’t finish one. I see the shift in others too, less reading more videos, but I think they’ll always be a place for it.

  3. I couldn’t agree more with you! It’s sad to see how our society is losing the habit of reading and instead opting for quick and easy forms of entertainment. With the rise of social media and video content, it’s easy to see why people are more interested in watching than reading. However, I believe that reading is an essential part of personal growth and development. It allows us to tap into our imagination and explore new worlds and ideas. So let us not forget the joy of reading and try to incorporate it into our busy lives.

  4. I totally see it too! Many of us want the quick little reels or shorts in a video over reading an article. We are shifting as a society in this direction. There’s less patience to read anything!

  5. People’s attention spans are decreasing by the minute, but I think we are taking in even more information than ever before. It’s interesting times.

  6. I tend to avoid a lot of the modern movies because it’s like being in a pinball machine. Everything has to be fast fast fast. The older movies took their time to develop plot and characters.

  7. I love what you said at the end of the post and I can’t agree more, yes we are evolving as a species and part of that evolution is the loss of amazing habits.

    I am so with you on this and have an avid love of reading and everyone should as well. It is the place where I can escape for a bit and be transported to a different place. It is also a place where you can. educate yourself which is so important so yes….I find it extremely sad as well and hope that people take the time to read a good book here and there especially the good book 😉

  9. This is a beautiful message and thank you for inspiring us to continue reading despite living in a very visual world.

    In fact, this is actually one of my personal advocacies — To inspire more people to read more books.

  10. I 100% can see where you are coming from! It definitely seems like I receive a far greater reach with my reels than I do with my post that only have photos & a short description. I feel like it might not be that it is preferred just easier when scrolling.

  11. Oh yyeeaaahhhhh….it is so sad that many of us have fallen into the luring trap of being on the move, all the time and hence, ignoring the smell of the flowers and sounds made by the little things we take for granted! We must get back to those good times of reading a page a day!

  12. So true, people rarely read anymore. They want their info quick and mostly watch videos. It’s why TikTok is so popular.

  13. You are so right, vlogs have become the dominant rather than blogs and I feel so sad about it as both a blogger and a reader. It seems we share the same sentiments on this whole change.

  14. It’s a terrible reality that we live in right now, not only is it disheartening but it’s a quick way for misinformation to spread when people don’t bother to read the text body and just share based off the hook!

  15. I’m still old school I guess and prefer to read over watch a video. But I have seen the same trend overall. I wish I could get into making videos for my blog since I think it would do better but just haven’t invested in it yet.

  16. Wow, that certainly is a short post and straight to the point. It’s true, our lives have become so busy that we often have very little time to sit and read things. It isn’t always easy to adjust to the newer ways that we consume information.

  17. I agree but I also am finding that I don’t have enough time to read or watch things like I used to. Nowadays I need little bite sized pieces of content just because I don’t have a lot of time anymore.

    videos are def the big ting right now. it’s hard to take the time to create videos, edit and everything.

  19. I truly hate how our world of screens and devices have turned us into a rushed society. Instant gratification or “I’m bored” comes from my children a lot. I blame their ipads. I blame myself. It’s time to get back to simpler times.

  20. Marie Cris Angeles

    This is true, even I sometimes do this. But after reading your article now regret my actions for not reading the details.

  21. I know what you mean and what you are referring to as well.. For me, reading is always important so I take the time to read;; and given i know how much effort I (and each of us) put into creating content, spending a little time is one way to appreciate that effort..

  22. This is so true, Apps like Tiktok has changed the younger generation but I still love reading and I want my kids to grow aas a reader.

  23. I totally understanf this! But I still try to read books. SOme kids nowadays dont get the pleasure in reading anymore.

  24. I think that times have definitely changed; people are too often rapidly scrolling through social media or rushing from one thing to another. It is not like it used to be.

  25. What a fantastic post! My life has been filled with so many unforgettable moments that I will never forget them

  26. I completely understand how you feel. It’s sad to see that people are too busy to take the time to read and engage with written content. However, I believe some still appreciate and value written communication. It’s important to remember that not everyone is the same, and we should continue to create and share content that resonates with our intended audience. Keep pushing forward, and don’t give up on the power of the written word.

  27. It really is so sad. Fading out the art of writing and the beauty of photography. It used to be about art and sharing and creating- now it’s just a mess. I think tiktok ruined a lot of those aspects because people just want to see 15 sec or less videos, and the attention span is just completely deteriorating which will have devastating effects offline too when it comes to connecting and socializing with people in the real world. Reading is such a joy and an escape and it’s sad to see a new generation unable to experience that gift.

    This is the saddest truth. I have witnessed some post on Facebook about people looking for a job then most people’s comments are they’re interested to be hired, people nowadays have problems in reading comprehension.

  29. For me to be honest I always choose to read articles or books or novels. It makes me feel more relaxed and think that I’m actually in that specific situation or scenarios

  30. Marie Gizelle

    So true, this just happened – I posted a video and info about my cat passing and I got a message that’s totally unrelated to it. 🙁 People just scroll…

  31. I completely understand your concerns about the decreasing popularity of written blogs and the loss of the habit of reading. It’s true that in today’s fast-paced world, people often prioritize quick and easily digestible content over longer written pieces.

    However, it’s essential to remember that technology also provides us with new opportunities to engage with written content. With the rise of e-books and audiobooks, people can now access literature in different formats that suit their preferences and lifestyles. Additionally, there are still avid readers who appreciate the depth and richness of written blogs, so don’t lose hope. ❤️

  32. I couldn’t agree more with this! It’s disheartening to see how the fast-paced world we live in has led to a decline in reading and a preference for quick, visual content. The art of storytelling through written words is something truly special and should not be overlooked or forgotten. I believe it’s essential to encourage and cherish the habit of reading, whether it’s through blogs, articles, or books.

  33. The title and the fact that this post was a chart-topper on Blogchatter grabbed my attention. I scrolled twice or thrice to see if I had inadvertently missed some part because it seemed too short to me , but I guess that itself may be the secret of hooking your readers, keep it short and catchy.

  34. It is really sad, but that’s what this change is all about. Reading has taken a back seat and who knows what we are reading is original or the creation of AI. I wish we could go back to the no internet era and have a special and loving relationship with books.

  36. Yes, agree with you completely. in this digital world, everyone is busy and in rush to jump on conclusions and make various assumptions. reading has become a forgotten habit. hope, things change in future and people again start going on old days, when simple things used to bring the pleasure in life.

  37. Yes, I so much agree with you that today we all are in so much of a hurry to jump for the result that small things that are required are left behind. Reading habit is something really lost somewhere but I am happy that my girl loves reading!!

  38. I feel people read, selectively though. And then you have subtitles on videos as well, so that makes visual appeal easier and when you are in a noisy place, the subtitles are pure value.

  39. As we all are heading towards a more tech savvy era we are all becoming more and more anxious and restless. Reading requires peace and stability in mind to grasp the essence of what we are reading. It is completely up to ourselves to instill this beautiful habit of reading in genz.

  40. I couldn’t agree more! I too feel at the loss of words, when it comes to the current trend of fads. People enjoy short-form content, and visuals more these days and the charm of long format writing is getting lost somewhere.

  41. I agree with you 100% and I experienced it personally. Sometimes the way readers give comments on the posts you will wonder whether they actually read the blog or not. This is the reason blogging is losing the charm which we used to enjoy when we started as a blogger in the industry. sadly people dont understand the difference between blogging and Vlogging and consider both the same… Reading a blog needs patience which is why vlogging is taking over blogging these days.

    Things are changing, whether we like it or not. . While readers are shifting from Blogs to video, many bloggers are moving from writing their own posts to preparing drafts using AI platforms like Chatgpt. We have to adapt or be ready to become a niche segment soon

  43. I agree with you. But possibly it’s because our brain and behavior nowadays are designed for quick things. From quick knowledge consumption to quick time spending. But anyway, I don’t hope to have ‘quick’ bounce rate on my blog haha.

  44. I know people who never read in their lives and I’m shocked at how they have survived till now. Hahaha! For me reading is a part of my life so it’s unfathomable to imagine someone not reading a book in their lives. Sometimes even I want to just watch and get the hack or infro asap rather than reading!
