Hi and welcome to the third edition of Blogs I rate.
Even though this is only the third one, I am super proud that I’ve managed to keep these posts around the same time, consistency and punctuality are not my strong points in any aspect of my life so to be able to finally create some organisation is a major achievement for me.
On the downside, this edition of Blogs I Rate it isn’t all I hoped it would be as I haven’t had any time to do much reading of blogs I follow or discover new ones. This doesn’t take away from the quality of the blogs I’m recommending today though.
Let’s get into it.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank (in Oscar speech style) those who’ve helped me and put up with me. Notably my Grandparents, who ferried round a teenage me regularly and took me the chippy after every Thursday track session. Also, my now coach and coincidentally soulmate (yes I have one of those, but it’s good, you should get one), Jason, who ferries round the adult me.”
I should point out that this is a blog about running and that is explained but I found the above excerpt hilarious so chose to share that instead. We have the same ‘home’ parkrun! As friendly as parkrun is, it’s near impossible to meet every single one of the hundreds of people that attend this free, timed, weekly run (not race!) So it’s nice to read about it from a fellow parkrunner’s perspective.
The honesty is a refreshing change from the usual stuff out the about how amazing running is, I’m glad I’m not the only person that has a very real love/hate, up and down relationship with running.
“My name is Daniella. I am 25 years of age (apparently lol).
I suffer with what some may call “blackouts”. It starts off with a headache that becomes severely unbearable and I lose consciousness. When I come back round I tend to lose memory of the past 2 days or so. Dr’s and specialists have no idea what this is or what the reason for it may be.”
Never again will I get annoyed when I go upstairs to get something but forget what it is by the time I reach the last step after reading Daniella’s story.
Aside from the above quip, I have no experience with memory loss and blackouts but it is an intriguing subject that deserves the awareness Daniella is raising. I love that she doesn’t let her condition affect her daily life and am glad I know a little bit more about blackouts.
“Hi there, I’m Bunmi aka Buma. I have a whole lot of personality in my 5’2 frame.
I started this blog to share my outfits, opinions & whatever pops into this spontaneous head of mine.”
Buma isn’t lying when she says she has a whole lot of personality and it shows in the candid style of her engaging posts. Whether it’s fashion, food or fornication, every young female blogger will find something they can relate to on this blog.
And there it is 🙂 I must say- as I was hurriedly putting together this post on the day it should be published, I really enjoyed reading again the blogs I’ve included. I’ve realised that comedy is the way to my literary heart so if your blog is funny, endearing or just bloody brilliant don’t be afraid to let me know!
Until next time x
