A blog about life in London

London Blog | London Is Cool

London Is Cool, is of course a London blog, one of countless blogs about life in the Big Smoke. Blogging is a medium that is open to everyone, whether you can string enough words together or not to write a coherent sentence. It doesn’t really matter.

The problem is that most people cant string enough thoughts together for long enough to keep a blog gong for more than a month or two.

I was lazing around like I do from time to time, thinking about how many London blogs there were out there on the world wide web. London is a massive city, so I thought there must be huge amount of London Bloggers, each with their own unique style and perspective on life in the greatest city on the planet.

Such is the nature of the blogging world, is the fact that there are always new ones starting up and likewise there are plenty of blogs that have long since ceased to be updated. I thought there must be a few thousand London blogs out there in cyberspace.

London Is Cool has been on the go for around 10 months, which is almost like a lifetime in the world of blogging. It has been a fun ride so far. Whether my blog is any good is open to debate, but I reckon it is fucking awesome.

So what makes a London blog, well in my humble wee opinion if you are living in London and you write at least some content about life living here you are one. There are about 6 other London blogs that I visit on a regular basis all of which have their own style and vision, which appeals to me. I have came across plenty of  blogs relating to life here, but they are not my cup of tea as the saying goes. That doesn’t mean they are bad or poorly written, because many of them are written and structured better than I could ever dream of.

During my research trying to figure out how many London blogs there were, I came across a site called London Bloggers and would you believe they have 4218 registered London Weblogs. That truly amazed me and I would hazard a  guess that there are thousands more blogs that are not registered on that site.

So many blogs with a different perspective on life in the city of cool London. What I love about reading other blogs about life in London is that I can sometimes find inspiration for new adventures to embark upon. Or new stories to write.

Blogs sure beat the traditional media and out of date guide books for things to do and places to visit in London. Blogs truly keep you up to date with with what is happening right here and right now. As well as the fact most bloggers cant be paid off to give a glowing review of something. If its crap we are going to say so.

Blogging is here to stay, Blogging is still the future of the Internet…… Twitter what’s that all about. Do I really want to know that you are stuck on a bus in traffic jam from hell or what you had for your supper last night. Or that you cant decide to put on the black or pink panties to meet the lying twat with a wife, three kids and 5 girlfriends you met off Facebook last night. I wonder what those super bores on Twitter did before they found an outlet for their triviality.

If you want to get your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the “Big Smoke” start reading a London blog called London Is Cool, or some of the many other original London blogs out there.

  1. I follow loads of London blogs too! I never tire of them which is ood – means I’ll never tire of this city!

  2. You have a great blog here. I like reading unique blogs like yours. I have a site myself which provides information on popular vacation destinations. I want my site to be a place where anyone from around the world can come and have that vacation spirit or “vacation feeling” as you can tell from my domain name.

    I’d like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible.

  3. To tire of London is to tire of life. I have been here for almost a year now and I still get a huge buzz everytime I walk out my door.
