I adore blogging, there I said it, for me it's perfect as I can talk the hind legs off a donkey. I get so excited when I find something new that I bore the pants off my family, and I get a lot of "you told me that already ".
I get such pleasure at just how brilliant and funny other bloggers can be, before the Google and the Interweby we only had glossy magazines and they sure as hell were only going to show you a perfect idealist life, yep I know we all like to dream, but really ? way to go to make feel like you are not living the perfect life !
In real life stuff happens, and that's what blogging has bought us, real life, real people, real houses, real lives, it has bought us the human side to life which I love, as a nation we are nosey, ha ha that's not being harsh, we just are ! shows like Big Brother, and soap operas are living proof that we like to view other peoples lives.
YouTube, although not something I don't think I would ever be brave enough to do, has been a real eye opener for me, not naming names but....some of the very best videos I have seen have been of ladies who are not size 8 twenty somethings that are more than happy to go on camera with no make up, and start their vlog with "excuse the mess " Wonderful relatable real life from REAL women :)
I totally admire and am in awe of the young bloggers and their ability to touch the lives of youngsters in a way that was never possible in * Our Day*
I have experienced first hand the positive influences that the likes of Zoella and Sprinkle of Glitter have made to my Granddaughter and her friends, flipping heck at the ripe old age of 58 I even know who Dan & Phil are as she is off to see them in Brighton, two cheeky chappies who make funny YouTube Vids......." "Nan watch this ! "
I have also purchased every Zoella product on the market, and have spent hours......no I lie, minutes being wracked with guilt at my failure to obtain the limited edition candle lol BAD NANNA !
Well, that's enough rambling for now, what are your thoughts ? you clearly love blogs as much as me for having the patience to read this :)
Love n Hugz
