#18 Websites

I'm going to skip question #17. Simply because it is practically the same questions as #2!  So I'm going to jump on to #18...

My current favourite website is...

Personal Blogs  

I don't really browse too far on the internet to be honest. I stick to the websites I know.  I spend a lot of time on facebook, twitter, a small forum, pinterest, Mumsnet bloggers network.  I follow and read a number of blogs, I blog, it is a community. Blogging is a conversation; carried on after the post has finished with comments, facebook connections and tweets. I love responding to people's blogs and having mine responded to. 

I like the live blog roll on the Mumsnet bloggers page, most evenings I browse through and click on lots of random posts when the title takes my fancy. The last random read I found was Mama Marmalade; a post about spousal irritation. It was witty and entertaining and familiarly like Jon and I! I like her writing style. I'm now following her on twitter and enjoyed the latest post of bargaining with siblings too. I can identify with her! 

I enjoy reading blogs, I try and read widely and explore many parenting blogs, current affairs and campaign blogs, political blogs, crafty blogs and of course a number of fellow bereaved parent blogs. 

Blogging is becoming increasingly popular and I don't think that is a bad thing at all. Like forums, blogging connects people, allows people to share in others lives in a real way, gives normal every day people a voice to be heard, helps people relate to each other, allows stories to be told, awareness to be raised, passions to be followed, allows education on a range of subjects and ideas. Blogs are becoming little personal websites, a space on ready made platforms, or your own platform if you choose to.  It is easy to find similar people with same interest and same passions, as well as find completely different and interesting new people! 

As well as Mama Marmalade (above), these are just some of the blogs I'm regularly reading at the moment.  I hope you enjoy them too, in no particular order...

Thank you so much. I feel really honoured and am very grateful. I love social media and love the way we stumble across like minded people in a world of strangers!
