Song poet Kate Nash has extended her musical and lyrical talents to a new blog My Ignorant Youth.
It came to my notice from this tweet of hers on March 20th – and she is certainly committed to it so far – no half-hearted record label blog is this with infrequent posts when the artist has new merchandise to promote or feels the need to attach themselves to some current news-story – it is in keeping with her songs poetic, creative and passionate.
Her most recent post was a very non-music business one of her Nan’s 80th birthday. Yet others about her Rock and Roll After-School Music Club – a scheme to get girls into song-writing (see this Independent Article for more details) – and of her current tour across the UK.
In addition to the words and photos fitting artwork is contributed from friend and fellow blogger Kate O’Brien.
I made no hesitation in following her – my only surprise is that there are only 197 followers so far – I am sure that will change as much for her wider celebrity as it being a creative and original blog.
I seem to have followed her twice myself – not intentional – I got bamboozled by the Google Blogger registration process – and I am not that easily bamboozled – I think!
I will be following her ‘My Ignorant Youth’ blog with as much pleasure as I do her tweets.
