Theatre Blogger: 52 Venues in 52 weeks
One way of standing out from the crowd is to commit yourself to a challenge that takes place over a period of time, and then blog about it every step of the way. In the film “Julie and Julia” a struggling writer who loves to cook decides to try out every single recipe from her hero’s recipe book, every night for a year:
Risking her marriage, her job, and her cats’ well-being, she has signed on for a deranged assignment.
365 days. 536 recipes. One girl and a crappy outer borough kitchen.
How far will it go? – The Julie/Julia Project
Favourite Theatre Blogger
It’s in a similar vein to this that one of the theatre bloggers in London has embarked on a challenge called “52 weeks, 52 fringe venues”. I couldn’t name more than a handful of London fringe theatre venues myself, so I subscribed at once in order to learn more about the wider scene. I’m also recommending the blog on which the challenge is published – “Distant Aggravation” as my choice for favourite theatre blogger in Theatre Blogger Week.
Corinne Furness, who writes Distant Aggravation describes herself as a “writer and theatre maker” and has also written a post on Blogging by Numbers : On Why It’s Time To Listen (or a love letter to theatre bloggers)
