Here we go…
This is Recommendable, a place where I will be sharing things I like, that others might too.
These could be music, podcasts, tv programs, books, films, or just about anything I find, old or new.
A dissertation could probably be written on what’s so special and strange about giving and receiving recommendations. About how enjoyable they are to receive, and how scary they can be to give out. The conflict of revealing a rare or undiscovered song that you don’t want to tell anyone about because it’s your personal discovery, but conversely you want the whole world to hear.
The trepidation that comes with recommending something to someone: waiting to hear from them, and how elated you fell when they share your love for it or how disappointed you feel if they don’t. There’s nothing better than having a friend who can lead you on a road map through a topic you know nothing about and don’t know where to start.
These things are what makes recommendations so special and why I started yet another bloody blog.
