The Gull Reef Club – 15 Years

Filed under: — Jaime @ 2:17 pm

If a blog post is made on the internet, but no one is around to read it, does it still make a sound?

15 years of blogging. My, how times have changed. What started as a livejournal (then known as ADJaime), evolved to this little corner of the web known as The Gull Reef Club. It certainly has been an evolution.

I started blogging because I wanted a way to keep up with a few online friends I had made. I ended up liking the journaling aspect of blogging and kept going. 15 years later and I’m still here. This is despite that fact that blogging is more or less dead. The internet that I knew from 15 years ago is also pretty much dead. People don’t read much online anymore. They just look at/post pictures and comment in emojis. People don’t even go to websites much anymore and prefer to surrender their personal information to play in the walled gardens we call apps. I really don’t get it, but it’s because I don’t want to. The world is passing me and this blog by. Ashes, ashes, all fall down.

One thing I’ve learned in these fifteen years is that I’m ok with being a relic. This blog will go on simply because I like to do it. I like sharing my random thoughts with whomever still may be out there reading it. If there ever comes a day where I am sick of it, I will stop. Whether it makes a sound, I don’t think I will ever know.
