People Break Down Which Things Were Attractive 10 Years Ago That Are Lame Today

It's always interesting what ages well and what doesn't.

And, for that matter, how quickly something ages.

How often do we find ourselves sitting down to watch a film or TV show from only ten years ago to see how poorly it holds up?

Or, for that matter, how ten years ago we thought something would be the next big craze or trend, and instead see it become obsolete with each passing year.


Redditor jerydajery was curious to hear what things people were attracted or fascinated by a decade ago, but have little to no interest in today, leading them to ask:

"What was attractive 10 years ago but now isn't anymore?"

Blogging

"Honestly, I miss the blogging culture."

'Articles written with honesty and passion, mostly to connect with real-life friends first and online audiences second."

"Only the biggest bloggers could make a living off blogging."

"They were the original influencers."

"Easy to avoid though because there were just a handful of them, unlike the influencer culture of today."

"The one thing I love about blogging culture were the honest reviews."

'No advertisers to please, just regular folks writing their opinions on something they’ve used long term."

"Back then Google even had a specific search engine exclusively for blogs."

"Blogs were proper article length."

The world becomes a different place with each passing year.

One can only imagine things we can't get enough of today which we won't be able to bear the sight of in ten years.

Though, it's safe to assume one thing we wouldn't mind seeing less of are medical masks and mobile testing sights...

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
