Surfing the “blogsphere”

I was a little worried about this first blog post for my Principles of Public Relations class. How was I supposed to know what to say about a blog when I have never blogged in my life before? I decided to just dive right in and see what I could get. I began to look on other blogs on and found an enormous amount of blogs to talk about. I think it took me about an hour to discover one that really caught my eye. The blog I found was about a woman who is traveling around the world. Her name is Haylsaway and her blog is very interesting and eye catching. She travels to places I have not even dreamed about going to. Her and a few friends load up a van and go. Of course, sometimes the van needs to stay put somewhere because it can not travel to certain places.

I could probably write for quite some time about what I like about her blog. Her blog shows insight on everything she did on every trip. She will comment about what she ate, where she stayed, where they went, and what they did. Not only does she explain everything in detail, she adds beautiful pictures of every place they visit. My favorite blog she posted about was her trip to Greece’s many islands. I have always dreamed about going to Greece because of their beautiful architecture, culture, and of course, beautiful turquoise waters.

Of course, with any blog, there will be something that a viewer may not like. One of the things I did not like about Haylsaway’s blog would be there were not any widgets. What I was hoping to find would be maybe her social media pages, mainly her Instagram. This is because I would love to have an ability to view her world about her blogs while I am scrolling through my social media. Her pictures are beautiful and I would love to pretend I am somewhere she is while in class or walking around in Iowa’s frigid temps.

Something I would love to incorporate into my own blog that I got from Haylsaway’s would have to be the pictures, amazing detail, and organization. Her blogs were very well thought out and organized so the flow worked very well.

Finding Haylsaway’s blog was a blessing and a curse because I am able to see the beauty of the world but I am not the one living it.
