Blogging has gathered huge momentum in recent years as more and more people feel inspired enough to share their ideas and opinions with the world. Whenever you’re in need of a bit of inspiration, you’re sure to find it by logging onto a few of our favourite blogs.
Here is one of our recent favourites; we hope you will like it as much as we did:
In Kate Baxter’s own words, this blog is “one big magpie’s nest” of ideas and musings on her favourite subjects, which include food, fashion, travel and interior design.
Her day job, as an interior decorator, clearly informs a great deal of her opinions on these subjects. She talks with great freedom in her bio of using the blog to encourage and develop her passions as well as her personal sense of style.
The remainder of the blog certainly follows this theme of freedom, as Kate blogs furiously and descriptively about virtually anything and everything that catches her eye and evokes inspiration.
The sense of abandon with which she writes is one of the most endearing qualities which run through all of the blog posts, regardless of what subject she is covering.
Baxter is also keen on promoting lesser known brands and shops which she stumbles across on her travels. In one particular post, she praises the virtues of the luxury furniture brand Wharfside, picking out all of the classic furniture and “mid-century inspired” designs that caught her eye.
She talks specifically of the “brightly coloured forum dining chairs” and “modular wall mounted shelving units” that really stood out for her. This post is typical of her personal style as she talks openly and descriptively about her favourite pieces from the brand without ever running the risk of labouring the point.
Most posts are relatively short in nature, but as all bloggers know this is one of the golden rules of blogging. Rambling endlessly about one topic without varying the subject is never a good idea for any blogger, and Kate Baxter appears to be fully aware of this. As a result, her posts are informative, keenly observed and succinct.
Judging by her 2,500 Twitter followers, Baxter’s blog is clearly gathering momentum in the social networking world. Her keen eye for a photograph also runs as a consistent theme throughout the blog, with numerous snapshots providing an aesthetic accompaniment to her thoughts, theories and travels.
The great characteristic of this blog is that it covers a varying range of topics that are obviously close to the author’s heart, without ever coming across as anything self-involved or indulgent. As a reader you gain a fascinating insight into the life of Kate Baxter, and Kate is more than happy to include you in the journey.Read more »
