Which Blog is Your MUST Follow ~Gatherings from Ireland # 356

Just imagine for a minute that you were only allowed to follow one blog (other than your own), which would it be?

This question has been flying around in my head since early morning when I was out walking at Tramore Beach. I could feel the social researcher in me coming out to play and I started to think of how I follow a very diverse range of blogs.

There’s an element of  birds of a feather flock together in my choices but then again I can see patterns in my following that exemplify the old adage: opposites attract !

To single out one blog is certainly not easy but I got as far as realising that there are about 5 blogs that I absolutely have to read, and I make sure to set them aside for later, if they happen to appear at a time when I can’t drop everything and jump into them. Now choosing between these would be extremely tough but if I absolutely had to do it, I’d be bringing http://www.foxglovelane.com/ with me. I think if you take a look at it you’ll soon see why!

Now, over to you. I’m bursting to hear your choice!

My Must-Read Irish Blogs ~ Gatherings from Ireland # 134

You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: did he have passion. (Dean Kansky)

Colours speak all languages. (Joseph Addison)

Laughter is wine for the soul – laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness … the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living. (Sean O’Casey)

After some soul-searching, I’ve decided that passion, colour and humour are what I look for in a blog. I suppose that’s not too surprising as I tend to look for these characteristics in people, books, films ….. the lot.  It’s not that I necessarily look for all three in the one go ~ that could get a bit dull ~ but I like to know where I’m pretty sure to find them.

Blogging in Ireland is booming and I know that I’ve only read a sample of the thousands that are out there. However, today, I want to bring you 4 Irish blogs that I love and hope you enjoy perusing them.





I’m really interested to hear what you look for in a blog and which are your favourites from the country in which you live.
