I read blogs. Travel blogs and food blogs, photography blogs (okay, okay, they mostly involve looking) and personal blogs, blogs about books and blogs about life.
I have no idea how many posts I read. At a guess more than one hundred, probably less than three hundred a month – whichever, it’s quite a few.And every month there are posts that stand out above all the rest. I tweet and email and like and comment on those posts. But they deserve more than that.
And as Brenda says over on Burns the Fire: It’s all about sharing the love, the blog love.
So once a month, on Freshly Seen, I’ll share the best of the best. They’re the ones I read aloud to John and tell the kids about. They’re posts that make me laugh or cry or think – sometimes all three at once.
I’m making it hard on myself – I’ll only feature three posts a month. (Although, if you’re paying attention you’ll see I’ve snuck in an extra this month.)
So, in no particular order, for the month of June, Freshly Seen at Jill’s Scene were:
Su discusses and challenges socially constructed concepts of beauty. She also takes brilliant photos.
This post from Janet Sunderland really got me thinking and hoping. You’ll see why – it’s only partly to do with chocolate.
I’ve been a fan of Dan’s blog, No Facilities, like – forever. He’s teamed up with some writing mates to run a blogfest. Despite what he says, I suspect that if Dan has anything to do with it, it’ll be worth following along. When you click on the link you’ll see it’s all about sharing the love, too.
And there you have it, folks; the best of the best for June 2015. Check them out. They’re like chocolate for bloggers. And come back in a month for my best of the best reads in July.
