It has long been a dream to meet other bloggers, but as most of the blogs I read are international or are very popular (kind of like the Angelina Jolies of the blog world) that has not been very practical! The only bloggers I have met I was already friends with in the real world.
Well, all that changed last week on Friday when I got a chance to meet the Hornsey Road Blogger, I had seen her on twitter and seen the odd blog article by her and always enjoyed what she has to say. It is so interesting to read about the lives of people who live and who have lived in the same area as me. Anyway we arranged to meet for a coffee for a chat about Islington, history and blogging.
As a info loving and passionate North Londoner, this blog is total eye/head candy, filled with articles about the life and history of the area near Hornsey Rd. One of the main things I love about where I live is the community, and when I take the time to slow down and talk to people, to listen - it helps me understand more of what this community is about. So if you are interested in history and community, this is the place to go!
So go on over and visit the Hornsey Road Blog, I'll warn you, have a mug of coffee and a biscuit ready - it makes for addictive reading!
