Why I Never Take Any Blogging Course and Why I Don’t Want My Blog to Hit Success Overnight

A few days ago, one of the members on the blogging communities that I’m in shared the post on Medium that has now been deleted. In case you didn’t know some recent news in blogging communities, it was about this influencer who was accused of scamming through her Instagram course.

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote something about blogging here, so I guess I’ll do it now that it’s a hot trending topic. At least through blogging communities.

In the midst of my Borneo trip, I got a few messages that got me slightly anxious. I often cringed hard to read when I suddenly saw the name of some old acquaintance on various messaging platforms. From the classic ol’ Whatsapp to Instagram Direct Message.

Frankly speaking, I’m not a big fan of getting in touch with an old acquaintance. I may come across as rude, but I feel like it’s not really necessary to keep in touch, especially when their life is no longer relevant.
