Now, I know I'm not a famous blogger and the fact that my posts tend to average about 1 every 3 months at the moment probably goes some way to explaining why that is. However, I do like writing and enjoy sharing my thoughts with the world whether they choose to read them or not.
I am currently writing my work's 'Social Media Policy' which is about as dreary as the weather on this Monday afternoon that I'm writing it so I thought I'd take a break to update my blog (before the policy gets written and it becomes 'illegal' to do so at work!).
Now there are blogs about anything. And so there should be. If someone is passionate enough to write about a subject, there's got to be people out there interested in reading about them. From food to fashion, dancing to driving, if you're doing it, you can guarantee someone else is blogging about it.
Which leads me on to the phenomenon of wedding blogs.
For those that don't know or didn't get the subtle hints in my update blog, I am now betrothed (awesome word) and will be becoming Mrs Alice Higgins on 8th October 2011. I do love weddings and if every other bride to be in the world is even a fraction of how happy and excited I am then good on them.
As I say, I love weddings. I love going to weddings. I love talking about weddings. I love reading about weddings. But there does come a point where enough is enough and I want to go and hide away from anything wedding related because it's all becoming a bit stressful. I don't know why I do it to myself really!!
There are some fab wedding blogs out there.
Dainty Brides(http://www.mission2wed.blogspot.com/) is great for small finds and reminding us why we're putting ourselves through this stress in the first place.
Mission 2 Wed (http://www.mission2wed.blogspot.com/) is a local girl who is getting married in 9 months and shares all the excitement that I do. I have never met her but I keep squealing when I read her posts.
And possibly my favourite for amazing ideas: Style Me Pretty (http://www.stylemepretty.com/) which I've not even really had a chance to look through yet but every page I have looked at is brimming with ideas and pretty things that I would love to be able to replicate on our special day.
This blog is not a wedding blog but there will, obviously, be wedding related stuff in it. It's part of my life and although there's plenty of time, I do enjoy thinking about it and finding nice stuff that we might be able to use. We do not have a lot of money to throw at our wedding but I think my experience in event organisation and creativity of family and friends means its going to be one hell of a party!!!
