Me: So what are you up to?
Him: Yeah, well, I'm working on my writing.
Me: Oh! You should start a blog! That'd really help you improve your writing!
Him:...start a what?
And I realised something. There's a serious deficit of British bloggers. I'm sure there must be some out there but out of the 37 blogs I currently read on a daily basis, only 4 of them are British.
Just 2 of them are regularly updated.
Since I am (obviously) hair obsessed, a lot of the blogs are hair related - since finding information and hair style ideas is so hard to do on the ground in the U.K, I have resorted to the internet and she has responded gloriously.
However, I know there must be more British bloggers than this who have similar interests to me (y'know, hair, cake, fros, life improvement and trying to get 7 year old nephews to eat vegetables. The usual) but I have no idea where to find them.
As far as I know, there are no sort of web awards or conferences that happen everywhere. It's seriously not as if people have anything better to do (as obvious from my facebook news feed detailing the various boredoms of various 'associates').
I feel like starting a revolution, of grabbing the nearest apathetic teen, shaking some life and excitement into them and yelling "Express yourself creatively! Without having to resort to LiveJournal!!"
Oh well. Do as Gandhi did. Be the change you want to see in the world and all that.
