Home Fires is a blog maintained by a woman going by the name of Lois Lane, an American residing in Illinois. According to her first post way back in December 2004, she was roped into the blogging world by an evil princess, a bulldog and a few family members. I must take this opportunity to thank all those involved in persuading Lois to blog because this site is home to one of the most talented bloggers I have ever come across on the internet!
Thankfully I learned as a child not to judge a book by it’s cover because the template did absolutely nothing for me! It’s based on one of the preinstalled blogger templates with a strange combination of green, cream and black which doesn’t really work well. The navigation bar images are also ugly however the names of them are well thought out and go well with the title of the blog.
All my reservations about the design are forgotten though once I start reading the posts! When I started reading this blog, I forgot about everything and I was engrossed with it! I had never before been this emotionally attached to a blog. Her posts are rich with emotion and her own dash of humour and like a good book, once you start reading it, you find it hard to stop until your finished!
In her most recent post, she relives the experience of giving birth to “Lane 2”. She describes the post as being an emotional roller-coaster ans that’s exactly what it was! At time’s I nearly cried, other times I laughed but at all times I was hooked to it! After a while I found myself reading down through pages and pages of posts and being shocked and entertained from start to finish!
If you do happen to get bored of this blog there are plenty of links to other quality blogs. Some may argue that there are too many links but I don’t mind a lot of links especially when they lead to other good sites and blogs.
To bring things to a close, this really is a must visit site. Whether you want to have a good laugh or a good cry there is something here to suit your tastes!NULL
