As well as writing the odd line or two every day I am also addicted to reading. Always have been, and whether it is my favourite authors, newspapers, food packages or fag packets, if it has writing on, then I have to read it.
So it will come as no surprise that I enjoy reading other peoples blogs. Not any old blog but those relating to our little piece of paradise. Of course there are some who write just to make money and you can tell immediately by their use of ‘key’ words, I generally give those a miss. Unless they catch my attention in the first paragraph and are not just regurgitating the same old same old (often from the back of that fag packet because they haven’t actually visited the island) in those instances, I move on to the next 🙂
There are hundreds of blogs each month about walking on the island and I tend to give those a miss too because the best information, in my opinion, can be gained from our very own Tenerife Rambler, Gary Rosson or Tenerife Sur Under 10km brought to us by Alison and John Mackenzie.
What I particularly enjoy are the blogs from people who have come on holiday and are amazed that the island isn’t quite what they expected from reading about it in the tabloids. Or those who have been visiting Tenerife for the proverbial ‘donkeys years’ and can give an insight and tips to those newbies finding their way around our island possibly for the first time.
By now anyone reading will think I’m just rambling, but this is actually going somewhere.
I thought as a bit of a change I might share some of the interesting ‘stuff’ that might be missed by non-bloggers. I have therefore decided to schedule to my facebook page as well as the group page Tenerife 4 All blogs that I find interesting or informative. Do check these out you may find someone whose writing really clicks and you want to follow.
The first one I am sharing starts next Saturday 21st April and is called The Wrong Bus.
