Reading was never really my thing, I’ve always preferred to listen to something, like a podcast or a youtube video when it comes to me learning something new. As with reading, I tend to switch off or skim through blogs just to pick out the important bits. However, when I first came across the ‘Journey with Jasmine’ blog, that all changed, I am fully hooked!! I have never been more hooked on reading anyone else’s blog as I have theirs. The way Jasmine and Jaycee are able to captivate the reader with the topics they are clearly so passionate about and the way they are able to express this is utterly mind-blowing!
These blogs are for people who are curious and open-minded about topics that are usually oppressed, turned a blind-eye to or forgotten about because they don’t fit in with what’s ‘trending’. But what I truly find fascinating is that although Jasmine and Jaycee only post every so often (I wish it was more!!) these blogs have educated me in so many ways, opened my eyes to so much I didn’t know, which has made me want to do further research into the topics and experiences they discuss.
Overall, I look forward to reading their blog posts and I strongly advise everyone to take 5-10 minutes out of their day to read and soak up all the experiences they write about. They have changed the way I once so negatively thought about reading and I am appreciative that I am able to embark on this ‘Journey with Jasmine’.
