Blogging Brits
A blog about blogging, and about being British.

A public journal


A blog is basically a diary, or a journal if you wish. It is a place where you publish information, emotions and thoughts for the world to read. You can keep a blog private as well, and invite whoever you wish to read it by offering them the password. Some bloggers remain anonymous, like myself, but most are open with their identity. This blog is not personal, so I don't feel a need to put any focus on me here.

Peculiar people

So what is this particular blog really about? Well, I would say it is a blog about blogging, and about being British. I am British myself, and we are quite peculiar people so it is a fun theme to have, but I guess I will have to see how far I can take it. 

I am also very fascinated about the blogging concept, this being my third own blog. Why do so many of us have such a strong need to get published? Why do we want to keep our journals out in the open like this? It is such a strong opposite to the locket diaries we kept in earlier days.

How Brexit Changed Britain

28 Jul 2021

As a British citizen, it is undoubtedly fair to say that I noticed a significant change in my country following the Brexit referendum. It has caused a massive shift in society, culture and politics. I believe that this event has turned the UK into a more divisive nation.

Are we a generation of narcissists?

11 Dec 2018

I am not saying this goes for all people, because there are still people out there who stay away from flaunting everything they have on social media. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. I am a typical exampel of a member of the narcissistic generation. I take a lot of selfies; I get a nice rush for every like I get on my Instagram photos and I feel blue from time to time because "everyone elses lives seem so much better than mine. There is alot of talk about this narcissism, but perhaps it's not all bad?

On Britishness, pubs and fruit machines

13 Jul 2018

What do a lot of British people have in common? Is there really such a thing as ‘Britishness’? Maybe the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the British would be those afternoons spent sipping a cup of black tea (with milk, of course) or those evenings at the pub drinking beer and discussing the dismal-looking British weather. Speaking of beer and pubs, in those good old days, British people also loved to try their luck on a slot machine (or two, or three!).

Unfortunately, these slot machines are not as fashionable today as they used to be, especially since pubs are moving upmarket and different gambling opportunities have been introduced, which may pay out more than the traditional lever-operated pub slots. In fact, slots at online casinos come with much more variety, and sometimes, with the potential to award huge jackpots too! Certainly, this is a topic worth blogging (and bragging) about, especially if you manage to land on a big win. In case you’d like to explore this subject further, we suggest you check out the best casino bonuses here, where you’ll also find a great choice of British casino operators.

The American way?

2 Jun 2018

The USA is full of English speaking Americans and even if it's obvious that they got their language from us, and - I suppose - that it actually is the same language, there are some things those guys across the pond say that just make no sense at all. (But how annoying is this bloke?)
