I was not made to read a newspaper, trust me I have tried to make several attempts (mostly in trains, when I was still using them to take me to school), but most of the time those resulted in a frustrating wrestle with the huge pages. Or even worse, with the person sitting next to me that I accidentally delivered a black eye while trying to turn a page.

Maybe the year that I was born in is to blame, I may not be born after 1990, but I do dub myself being from the internet generation. I can still clearly remember I could use the internet for half an hour a day when we got this dial-up connection and once I was ‘dialled-up’, my half an hour was as good as over. Also frustrating, but now that it seems to go faster by the day, not as frustrating as trying to flip a page that is too big for you to handle.

The only ‘newspaper’ that I daily care to flip through is Bloglovin’, something I start my day with, accompanied by a cup of green tea and a yoghurt. It is one of those very clever tools that I wish I came up with.

Now I know a lot of you are already using Bloglovin’ and are maybe even following me there, but for the ones that have not tried or are still using a random RSS tool, you should at least try for a week or two.

Follow me here.

And on popular demand, five of my current favorite blogs, in random order.

  1. Bloglovin is great but I’m also happy to have found Business of Fashion (dot com) and the New York Times to keep track of the art/fashion world.
