I have really grown to appreciate blogging as an important (but underrated, under-appreciated) literary form. Here are some of the bloggers I think do it best:
Did I ever tell you about the time I appeared in a newspaper dating column and got stood up by the guy who was supposed to join me? No? I’m surprised. I still cry into my gin and tonic about it on a regular basis. Table Manners? Impeccable is a weekly roast of the Guardian Blind Dates blog and it does make life just that bit more bearable.
Beauty journalist Deanna Pai chronicles her struggles with cancer on #TheseCellsAintLoyal, she writes like a dream despite the subject matter.
Mrs Bovary at Bovary, delicious little fragments of life with beautiful illustrations.
Love London Council Housing. I SO LOVE LONDON COUNCIL HOUSING. I wrote a PhD on it.
Miss Porch Swing. My old friend Catherine sometimes writes funny and insightful things on her blog. She doesn’t post often, but when she does it’s worth reading.
