You Go Glen Coco #4

Sunday, 22 February 2015
Long time readers of my blog might recognise this series from waaaay back in 2012/13.  It was basically a place for me to share blog posts that I'd recently enjoyed and to spread a bit of the blogger love. 

I'll be honest and say that in the last 6 months or so the only blogs I've read are those of my close friends, or interesting sounding posts that I've found on Twitter.  I'm trying to get back to the good old days though where I used to spend my Sunday mornings reading and commenting on blogs and feeling properly part of the blogging community.  I feel like I get so much more enjoyment from writing my own blog if I'm also engaging with other bloggers, so I definitely want to keep it up.

In a bid to do just that I've decided to revive my You Go Glen Coco series so I can share with you great posts and blogs that I've been enjoying recently.  I encourage you to share the love too - if you've read something recently that made me smile or laugh or cry then share it!  Blogging can be a bit of an egotistical pastime and sometimes when I nose in on the various hashtag blogger chats on Twitter it feels a bit like everyone is just desperately trying to advertise their own blog rather than engage with each other.  One of the best things about blogging for me is getting to meet people with similar interests.  I've made some amazing friends in the blogging community, people who I'd have never met if we hadn't decided one day to set up a blog.  

Funnily enough actually, in the last YGGC post I wrote (back in Feb 2013) one of the blogs I highlighted was Indigo Buttons - after that Kirsty and I started chatting on Twitter,  a few months later we met at a blogger event, and then one thing lead to another (not that) and now she's one of my best friends.  A prime example of what you can get out of the blogging community if you share a bit of the love. 

As I'm in the midst of wedding planning I've been reading quite a few wedding blogs recently, Rock My Wedding being one of my faves for real life wedding inspiration.  How adorable is Caroline & Rob's rustic pastel themed wedding?!

I adore Donna's outfit here - the dress, the bag, the fresh flowers - ahh just so cute!

I'm off to Disneyland Paris for my mini hen do/30th birthday celebrations in just a few weeks time and Lily's post and vlog have got me proper excited for my own Disney adventure!

I love Hannah's funny, open and honest writing style and this post is a perfect example.  

I'm loving Katherine's Copenhagen posts, they bring back lovely memories of my own trip last year (where I got engaged) and make me want to go back!

….and none for you Gretchen Weiners!
