We recently talked about why blogging is alive and well.
That said, for me the majority of blogs (especially those focusing largely on cameras and/or bicycles) tend to be very much focused on the technical, statistical side, with reviews and the like.
Or they just feature photographs that rarely transcend the ordinary.
Amidst the mediocrity, a couple of blogs that have really stood out for me and been something of a guiding light, consistently offer more than this.
A great deal more.
What they give the reader, me included, is a very personal and emotion fuelled adventure, combined with descriptive, intelligent, soulful and heartfelt writing, the likes of which you usually find in a treasured novel, or an intimate memoir. Or both, combined.
Please do check them out and see what you think.
As I said, they are setting the standard for me currently, shining the way with how emotive and articulate and honest and moving they are.
When 35hunter grows up and gets over being obsessed with gear, I want it to be more like Jennifer Bowman and Julie Riso’s blogs.

Thanks for looking. Please share this post with others you feel will enjoy it too. If you’re interested, this is what’s going on with my photography and cycling right now.
