According to figures, there are roughly 175,000 new blogs started every day. That’s a lot of reading to take in, even for the most avid blog reader.
So, to try and help just a little, I’m going to use Sundays as an opportunity to share a blogger and their blog with you. It won’t be restricted to social media, PR or marketing either. There are a lot more to read than just the bloggers from my neck of the woods.
I’ll also be focusing more on lesser-known blogs – after all, the big guys don’t really need another recommendation, do they? So, without further ado, I give you Lazy Sundays – I hope you enjoy.
Just Kickin’ It with Jac Star
Okay, so the first recommendation is with a biased slant – it’s my wife’s blog, Just Kickin’ It.
But, before you cry foul and call the Preferential Police, I can honestly say that it’s a blog I’d recommend anyway, regardless of relationship.
What I like about Just Kickin’ It is that it’s a multi-subject blog that works. Sometimes you can get blogs that cover different topics, or niches, and some areas can be stronger than others, or at the very least, hit and miss.
Just Kickin’ It avoids this for one big reason – the author Jac Star really does have a passion for each area she covers. From the latest book reviews that cover everything from teen fiction to erotic novels, to calling people out on their stupidity in her infamous rants, Jac offers each post a human voice.
She’s also got a great line in biting humour – just check out her take on Nadya Suleman (the octuplet mother) as an example.
Yet for all the cutting wit and recognizable rants, Just Kickin’ It offers a sensitive side as well, with the Dear Jac section. Here, Jac looks at problems that blog readers send in and offers her advice on the situation. She’s not pretending to be a psychiatrist – instead, she offers the view that an unbiased friend who cares would. And that’s what makes it work.
So, there you have it. Book reviews, thoughts and stories, rants and recommendations, all rolled up in Jac Star’s inimitable style.
If you’re looking for something other than the normal marketing, social media or business blog, you could do a lot worse than visit Just Kickin’ It. Even if it didn’t belong to my wife, I’d still recommend it – and I can’t say fairer than that.
