I realise there is much talk about the blog awards. It has started me thinking about what a good blog means to me. When I first moved to Cape Town and started a new job, my favourite part of the day was escaping to a bench outside, where I would sit with a coffee and cigarette and read a couple of blog posts I had printed out earlier. Those few moments of being in another world, shifting my focus, really helped me deal with all the chaos around me. There really is nothing like the written word and the effect it can have on you. There is so much good writing out there, so much honesty, integrity, shared hurt and shared joys. Not to mention those posts which bring a smile to your face on the bleakest of all days – priceless! There are definitely many more, but since I was up till all hours of the morning and feeling somewhat groggy, I can only list the few that come to mind!
