When my friend told me she had found a blog site written by Ian Filippini, I had no idea what it was about. She told me what a great writer he is though and how he is able to make his words come alive, so I decided to take a look at his blog. It is very hard to impress my friend, so I knew that it must be something pretty special. It did not take me long at all to find out why she was intrigued with Ian after reading a couple of his blog posts.
Some people are talented writers, and others think that they are. That is why I rarely read blogs anymore, because the majority of them are just not that good. If I am going to give my time to a blog, it needs to be written in a way that captivates me. I do admit that I was cynical before I even went to his blog, but I was really impressed. Not only does he write about subjects that most people are interested in, such as travel and restaurants, but he does so with clarity.
Most people who write about a restaurant that serves healthy foods and scrumptious pickles would probably not do it in a way where people would want to come back and read more reviews. That is not true of Ian Filippini though. Not only did he make me hungry for the food I was reading about, but he made me hungry for more of his reviews too. I don’t have a new faith in blog writers after this, but I do know that he is a rare gem in this field. I am going to keep reading his reviews because he is just that good. Plus, he is giving me some great ideas on where to go!
