Alright Tit. My favourite Blog.

Monday, November 26

Since I entered into the blogging world, there have been a few blogs that I've followed pretty solidly.  I've also begun to agree with the posts I've read about how you can feel like you really are stalking some of your favourite bloggers...Which I suppose you aren't really as they have put their posts out there to be read.  However, I have also read a few posts by some of the more popular bloggers advising that you never put information about your home address...as there really are some genuine stalkers out there!

 One of the best blogs I've encountered in my wanderings around the world wide web, is Alright Tit, by Lisa Lynch.  Now anything that you read about writing a successful blog online, will tell you, you need to write every day to be successful.  Lisa last wrote 5 weeks ago, and I can tell you, she writes one of the best blogs out there.


A bit about her, copied and pasted from her Blog bio:


Welcome to the website of me, Lisa Lynch: author, editor, blogger, wife, Ram, telly-addict, doofus, cancer bitch (but not, I hasten to add, cancer's bitch). The latter of those things is what initially got me blogging, swearing my way through The Bullshit following a pesky breast-cancer diagnosis at 28. Some three years down the line – with newly grown hair, a newly published book and a newly perky rack – I dared to assume that I'd seen the worst… only for the c-word to crop up once more: this time in my bones and brain, and this time incurable.

Every post that I have read of hers, makes me laugh, and usually cry a little too.  The way Lisa describes a situation is incredible. Her most recent post, where she explains how her Medical team told her that she had brain tumours, begins with...


‘Eh up, this must be bad,’ I said, as my clinical nurse specialist, head oncologist (that’s the Curly Professor, longtime blog readers) and his new registrar walked into the consultation room all together, like my very own three horsemen of a soon-to-be-revealed apocalypse. You see, after you’ve been at this cancer stuff for a while, you know the consultation-room drill: one registrar = good news; registrar + nurse = something to explain, but nothing to worry about; whole team together = DANGER.

I was thinking to myself last night that I hadn't read anything new for a while on her blog, and went to her site to have a quick look.

Nothing more there since the 16th October 2012...I scrolled further down the page and saw on the right hand side, this message:

Please Don't Worry
...if I haven't posted anything for a couple of weeks. Chances are I'm just busy having cancer, or busy having fun – most of which I'll be banging on about in 140-character form over on Twitter. So come over and say hi! You're gonna LOVE hearing all about my cat and my telly-watching and my bowel movements, I tells ya.

And so I logged onto my Twitter, I really do need to get a Twitter for Dummies book, I'm hopeless, and found her account.  Turns out the most eloquent blogger I've encountered is staying at Trinity Hospice at the moment.  Her tweets from the weekend are amusing and heartfelt, and I really did feel like quite the stalker as I obsessively scanned down her page to see what she has been up to.

I was so pleased to see that she was doing alright, as last that I read on her blog, was that she was awaiting funding for a treatment that she needed at a Private Hospital.  This inspired me to do my first ever tweet to someone.

And said to her:

@LisaLynch, I am one of your biggest blog stalkers! Hope you are doing ok at Trinity Hospice.  You are amazing x

Not much more you can say in a 140 characters!

And then this Morning I got my first twitter reply ever:)
@BerryDiaries, Aw, Thanks Lulu! And congratulations on your wedding!x

This girl is seriously my hero! Sending good vibes to you Lisa, in your war against the 'bullish**t', as you so aptly describe it.

And one day when I am big, I want to write as beautifully as you do.

I encourage you all to go and have a look at her blog and twitter account...a more inspiring lady you will struggle to find in bloggerland.

As she says,


You see, this isn't a story about some poor, unlucky lass being taken down by cancer; it's simply a story about the extraordinary life of an ordinary girl woman.

Happy Stalking!

Lulu
