How Blogging Has Changed!!

For the first time in a long time, I've finally had the chance to sit down and actually read and catch up with the interesting blogs I have on My Watched Blogs list.

I've noticed that even in the last couple of months, others, like myself, are not blogging as prolifically as we once did. I guess that thing called "life" is demanding our attention, and so it should. Yeah, so I have an addiction, but I've also got friends who are wondering where I've vanished too! Lol, that would be literally and figuratively too!

One thing I've noted with interest, is that since all the new (and from my point of view, much needed) changes have been introduced to Blogville, that the balance of power has shifted too. Reading the Top Bloggers in Europe list makes for a refreshing change. For too long, this list was dominated by bloggers who quite happily used alter-ego profiles, or their network of friends, to comment on their blogs, which had the potential to over-inflate their ratings. I'm pleased that "unique comments" has come in, because even I was guilty of reading the same old blogs, day in and day out. Hell yes, even I can admit that I was commenting on those same-said blogs, hence my comment about the network of friends. It was a "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" world.

Today I went and had a look at the list again, and there were a few new (and rather pretty!!) faces there! Topping the list is relative newcomer Samantha192, and after having a little nose through Samantha's Pandora's Box, I have to admit I was suitably impressed by the writing talents of this lovely young lady. I'm sure many of the men have been drawn by Samantha192, but let me tell you this... that pretty face hides a very sharp mind!!

Next on the list is Blogville's favourite bum... er, that should read bum shot! Papyrina has been drawing in the crowds with Papys diary almost since blogging on A F F began, and she's still going strong. Well done, Papy, and I, along with many others, wait to see what your pert little
will be saying next!

Another newcomer (well, for me, anyway) is the lovely TabithaElectra79. London seems to be the hot-bed of blogging talent in Europe right now, and a read through Sweetest Thing certainly cements my view. It doesn't hurt, of course, that Tabitha is also very easy on the eye ... TabithaElectra79, as I am sure you'll agree!

Fourth on the list is my new pal Babel__Fish, who is an American living in Belgium. Babel brings a new and rather interesting dimension to Blogville with ♥♥ Please and Serve ♥♥, which lets us take a peek into her life which she happily shares with her Master. Don't be fooled... Babel__Fish is a smart woman, and this comes through in her writing!

I'm rather pleased that freetime648 comes in at 5th on the list, as it won't be long before Free will be leaving Europe and heading back to Idaho, home of the humble spud, or so Free would have us believe! >>Spoons and Smiles... Always!<< has always been a wonderful read, and finally meeting Free in February was just the icing on the cake for me. Suddenly, this blog came alive and while I may not have as close a friendship with freetime648 as some of the other Euro Hot Tubbers do, I shall certainly be crying just a little when she takes her family (including the adorable Poot) back with her. We have one last visit on the cards, because Heaven alone only knows when I shall get the chance to go spudding!

So, there we have it. Europe's Top Bloggers! What an awesome read, and if you've not had the pleasure, go make yourself a coffee, sit down and do yourself a favour. You won't be disappointed... I promise! As for me... I'm quite content to be trailing somewhere in the distance - after all, I had my moment in the sun, and it's time to let someone else have that pleasure now!



Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

I wanted to say that S192 is not what she appears and has stolen most of the things from other websites, a little search will show you the same.

But the other blogs you mentioned are some of my favorites as well
