    "blather on about..." and "blather about..."

    Hello.

    blather (also blether)
    verb [v] ~ (on) (about sth) (informal, especially BrE) to talk continuously about things that are silly or unimportant:
    What are you blathering on about now?
    blather (also blether) noun [U]


    - blather on about something
    - blather about something

    I think that not only the first sentence but the second is grammatically correct. Is the first more common?

    Thank you.
