There’s this old wisdom coming from the past : no one can change the world, but I can change myself – or at least my way to see reality.
What does the blogger want? To share? To be loved? To change the world? To find out… why she blogs?
Some people probably blog to rebel. Not me obviously but I caught this idea because I found this little quote from Breton this morning :
“Rebellion is the spark in the wind, the spark who seeks the powder keg”.
“La rébellion est l’étincelle dans le vent, mais l’étincelle qui cherche la poudrière”.
Isn’t it a pretty metaphor? I’m personally not here to “rebel”, but (I just found this idiom) I probably wish that one day one of my articles finds the gunpowder keg.
But which one? What for ? To trigger something? To make someone change his mind? To get more followers?
Some bloggers are self-called influencers, and if they are massively followed, it’s because they fill a demand, right? Therefore they ARE influencers – as a bookseller, I see this phenomenon many times per month : a blogger (or YouTuber) writes a book, tells it, and immediatly you see hordes of obeying humans washing over…
A smol spark in the wind – la petite étincelle dans le vent?
To surf on waves and make big money?
To please the system?/To find the gunpowder?
To find the only one reader who will be changed?
Loop is looped – la boucle est bouclée : not to add mainstream ideas, but to offer little seeds, here, there, voilà.
Thansk for reading!
