Welcome to Bridge the Gap!
My name is Lauren and I run an online zine called Shooting Stars Mag. You can find the link to that in the right hand sidebar. The zine is all about entertainment, and this blog will be very similar...except Bridge the Gap won't have anything American (or nothing completely American). Shooting Stars Mag, on the other hand, might have some non-American posts but will be mostly American.
The reason I'm trying to separate the two is because as an American, I find it kind of annoying when other countries get all of our things (music, TV, music, etc.) and yet, we hardly ever get the things they produce. Shooting Stars Zine, as I said above, is all things entertainment and I'll post just about anything (even cross-posting things from here if people want me too), but Bridge the Gap is simply for those other Americans out there looking for more foreign types of entertainment and news, as well as those who aren't American and would like to hear about the things that hit more close to home.
Again, I'm an American teenager and I don't know everything about other countries out there, so I'd love any input, ideas, or help. If you want to hear about something, let me know! I'll even try and get some non-Americans to guest post so you can see an insiders' view of a topic, so to speak.
I want this to be fun. I want to share the things that I've found and love and hopefully help myself and others learn more in the process. After all, America isn't the only country out there, and I know I'm definitely not the only person who wishes we saw more from others.
Thanks for reading this and I hope you stick around. Follow the blog however you wish, keep checking back, and remember: I'm an American Girl Blogging about a Foreign World.
