The number of bloggers out there is astounding. Folks who have created their own little nitch. Some are good, some not so much, and some are just a pleasure to read. These way above average blogs, as I see them, are not rife with giveaways and pilfered links from other web sites. They stand alone on the merit of exceptional writing supported by photos that enhance the text. The way I look at writing is that it should read with rhythm, it should take you to that place or engage you in that thought. These are the traits (in my estimation) of excellence.
One particular blog that I have enjoyed so much is Mysteries Internal. The writing is just incredible. It is constructed in a manner that escapes contrivances, is honest to a fault, and opens the reader up to a sense of place. These may sound like an easy group to convey, but they are not, yet Erin Block pull it off time and time again. You should do yourself a favor and visit her blog.
Now- the story continues.
I am also one of those horrid slaves to Facebook. It was within that evil empire of social domination that I became friends with Erin. Then, through a short back and forth conversation...we realized the we read each others blogs.
The thought occured to me... How many of my Facebook friends are actually bloggers that I read? I think I am going to search this out....
Here is a list of some other blogs that I recommend-
Not all these are about fly fishing, but the writing is great in all.
Have a most excellent weekend friends wherever your adventures may take you.
