Or is blogging a dying art? Maybe not the best way to communicate to the tea world, maybe not as relevant as the powerful tea blog once was?
I think all of us tea bloggers out there discovered something about blogging, it is actually very time consuming! I think that's why it is such a nice platform to communicate about tea- it's (relatively speaking) slower than other online methods. It's a process. It takes time.
So is a good gong fu session...
I think us old school tea bloggers that once had lots of time in our 20s/early 30s to passionately pour our time into teaism, have lost that time to significant others, kids of our own, and demanding careers. There is only a certain amount of time in a day and surely those mentioned above are worthy of it!
It doesn't mean that we are still not passionate about drinking tea, I think we still are.... but we may have less time to really bask in a good tea session. No matter what's in a day, my tea session is a moment of peace, a pause, some space in my day. No matter how short it is, or cramped in between patients, or with my daughter tugging at my pant legs, it still brings me back into the moment.
I think others, too will come back to tea blogging as well. It's like a middle age tea blogging crisis!
I read BearsBears blog a few months back and it kind of sums it up this feeling.
