@Rellacafa on Twitter recently said she’s reading more blogs and getting to know real people, as opposed to reading magazines and getting to know celebrities.
Though I love my magazines (not so much trashy gossips ones, but Frankie, Yen, Shop Til You Drop and InStyle), I’ve been reading more blogs since I started this one, and have come to discover some wonderful people and what they’re made of – both people I’ve not met in real life, and people I’ve known for a while.
(I have connected with Rellacafa, or Caf for short, through Twitter, and I follow her blog and even did an essay based on her experiences with new media, but we are yet to meet – someday soon, though, I hope.)
I’ve been really happy to get to know some old friends better through their blogs – friends that I don’t really know that much about.
It’s great to see their talents for writing and photography, and also get an insight into their lives.
Here’s two of note. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Live; Love and other anomalies is a collection of photos and musings that are really well written, and quirky to boot.
A picture paints a thousand words is mainly a collection of photography – the photos are really beautiful.
Stop by to have a looksie – there’s some very talented people in the blogosphere, some I actually know in real life!
