    Most of these pages can be found as blogs, on pinterest and on instagram too if you want to hunt them out. Over the years I've followed most of those at some time, starting out with their blogs - which many of them have let slide since the advent of facebook

    same here, not being on facebook, I miss the blogs, they seemed much more individual and unique, than they do on facebook ( I had a look on DHs facebook! )

    I do prefer a blog to a fb page but fb is so instant. Yes I have fallen slave to sheer laziness :-(
    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door
