I read blogs. It's true. I've been a blog-ger and a blog-reader for about a year now and throughout that time I've stumbled upon numerous blogs. Most of these blogs I will read a post or two and decide it's not for me. Other blogs, I will read a post and think it's right up my alley, but upon further perusal, I realize that that one post was for me and the rest is crap.
And every so often I stumble upon a blog that I dig immediately. After reading a few recent posts, I will go back to the beginning of their blog and read the entire thing start-to-finish over the course of days/weeks. If I still give a fuck about what they're talking about, I'll bookmark them and visit their site on a regular basis.
More often than not, I give up reading the blog, either because they post so infrequently that I've forgotten who they are and what they're about, or else I decide that they're not funny anymore, or I no longer have an interest in what they have to say.
There's one blog in particular I want to bring your attention to. I have no idea how I found it, but I remember the first post I ever read. The post was practically devoted to vodka and I thought "Now this I can relate to!" I read her blog from the beginning onwards and I started visiting her site nearly everyday. (She posts nearly everyday, so I don't feel like a stalker).
Since then, I've gone back to re-read her blog from the beginning at least once (but I think two more times), I've commented on her posts (and received comments back!), I even set up a "Blogger" account so that I can officially "follow" her.
Why? Because sometimes it's nice to know when people are reading and they care about/enjoy what you write. Because sometimes you need to know that people like you. Because sometimes you need someone to bolster your spirits, even if you don't know them.
And that's why I wrote this post. In hopes that, maybe, you'll visit her blog and like what you read. And maybe you'll turn someone else onto her fabulous site. That maybe, just maybe, she'll achieve her dream of being a famous blogger/writer.
Now, go to her site: http://www.whenredmeansgo.com/ and read dammit!
Just in case you're a little gun-shy, here are a couple of my favourite posts:
Pretty awesome, right? But please don't stop reading my blog, m'kay?
