One Great Blog--A Review
As someone fairly new to the world of blog, I sometimes check out the "blogs of note" section and search around for something interesting. There is one that is really standing out and I felt the need to write about it.
The blog is quietlikehorses.com. At first, the poetic title caught my attention. I am a poet at heart since poetry was my first art; I wrote my first poem in the fourth grade and never stopped. The blog itself lived up to its title's promise. The author of this blog, Sobrina Tung, is a born writer. She masters content, rhythm, and humor.
It is the typical "all about my life" blog but is anything but typical. She has a boyfriend, Alan, who is in his twenties and battling cancer. Sobrina openly discusses this. She takes you in and you follow her, taking you into the depths of sadness and then bringing you to fits of laughter. When reading this blog, you feel like you are talking to your best friend, who is philosophical, real, and hilarious.
