Perhaps EVERYTHING is about writing, I don’t know, but I come across stuff, in my WordPress travels, blogs by people who aren’t expressly writing about writing and I thought I’d share some of what I’ve found. You might enjoy these blogs, too! If nothing else, they give a little insight into the variety of ways that people use blogging as a means of communicating something about themselves.
Hoarder Comes Clean is a blog by Sandy who is “blogging her way to a clutter-free house, one box, one stack, one cabinet at a time” after the death of her life-partner, Bob. Sandy considers what to do with each item she finds, asks why it was kept and what it tells her about herself and her partner, Bob.
Film Grimoire is “a place for film reviews and reflections” by Anna, a recent psychology and linguistics graduate from Melbourne, Australia. A nice place to visit if you’re looking for ideas about what to watch or if you enjoy reminiscing about favourites.
And, finally, (I’ll do a follow-up post soon) Khin Writes is somewhere to visit if you’re in the mood for looking at pretty pictures. Khin, from Singapore, posts images of flowers and craftwork she makes using crochet, calligraphy and typography. If you like her work she links to her shop on Etsy or you can just be inspired by her creativity.
What I also admire about these three sites is the inventive ways the bloggers have created an online space for themselves, using free WordPress themes.
Feel free to leave tips about blogs YOU enjoy which aren’t to do with what you usually do. Meanwhile, as it’s a public holiday in the UK tomorrow (Monday), I’m sipping a glass of Prosecco as I type and looking forward to a week off work. Cheers, everybody.
