Blog Review # 8 - Just Let Go

Name of Blog - Just Let Go
Writer - Emmyrose
from the Philippines

Personal Profile - (Quoted verbatim from her personal profile) - I'm Emmyrose. A twenty- something engineer by profession but writing is my passion. I take pleasures in simple things in life. I used to be like everyone else and I've been living my dream but I guess God has a different plan for my life. I was 23 when I almost died and was diagnosed to have Systematic Lupus Erythematosus. My life took an unexpected twist and everything changed. But God is so good. He made my darkest hour the greatest testimony in my life. I'm keeping the faith and though I'm not perfect, I'm not pretending to be one. I still screw up from time to time and I will always be a work in progress. Life difficulties and challenges had made me strong. I used to be a hopeless romantic but after experiencing a lot of heartaches and a series of broken heart, it made me feel all cynical about love. I sometimes wonder if I'll ever be in love again. Maybe one day, I'll be ready to take that risk again. As for now, I'm single and happy living each day as it comes.

Technical Features - The layout is beautiful and have a feminine touch. Pink is the color of the day as far as this blog is concerned. Although opening of the blog takes quite a long time, the waiting is worth the effort because the blog offers the best from Emmyrose. She has a very attractive widget in her sidebar and the theme of her blog says it all- "a hopeless romantic quest for true love and thoughts on the art of letting go." This blog is a combination of a commercial and a very personal and intimate blog rolled into one.

Ratings For Technical Features - 9

Contents - Contents of this blog are a hodgepodge of personal struggles through life brought about by lupus, her frustrations from failed past relationships, and her longing to finally meet the man of her dreams. Side by side with her personal anecdotes of her struggles with lupus and its debilitating symptoms, is her abiding faith in the goodness of God. The blog chronicles her almost personal dialogues with God, her longings, her dreams, even her fears. It is noteworthy to see a person, with a full time job and suffering from a debilitating disease, still able to keep up with her blogging chores. She even inspires others who are similarly undergoing their own trials and tribulations in life.
