Apparently it is National Blog Posting Month…I have taken to reading blogs a little more lately. This is mostly prompted by social media alerting me to new posts (two people I know to varying degrees and then a blog that I fell in love with when I was planning to marry and cannot leave now that the wedding has been and gone (RocknRoll Bride…not learned how to link yet).
Other visits to blogs have been when I have researching for the degree I completed this year and occasionally a link from a search about hair or feminism or from an article. These tend to be fleeting visits despite my promise to myself that I would return!
After the wedding we had a honeymoon and I was researching Paris and its arrondissements. I found a few guides ranging from travel blogs to tourist sites and they were somewhat useful in the geography of them but upon my return I revisited this search and it led me to another blog. Ella Coquine. I became enchanted by the whole tale of the author and her journey (yeah, yeah, I know…sounds like reality show speak) and although I don’t feel I have an awful lot to say, I wish I wrote more. So I am back here.
I have created a newly titled blog as the title of this one is somewhat misleading (I neither review gin nor frequent joints in which it is served, I just liked the aural alliteration and the speakeasy vibe) and I am going to launch it this very day/week or at least month in honour of the knowledge that this is the month to do so. It remains to be seen whether I report things thematically or even regularly as my past history with diary keeping indicates I will not BUT my desire to spend less time on FB as well as an inclination to become more acquainted with likeminded bloggers and thinkers tips the scales a little more in favour of my intent.
I may revisit this one to tell me how I am doing. Or I may just post here when under the influence of Mother’s Ruin. Who can say?!
