Sometimes it’s nice to tell the people who inspire you, “Hey, you inspire me! Thanks for writing! Thanks for sharing your life with the internet!” So that’s what I’m doing today.
I follow lots of blogs (hundreds) but frequently I scroll through bloglovin and only click the posts that interest me. These ladies below are the ones who I click on every time they post. The ones who never leave me hanging and who make blog world better for me. They are the bloggers who keep me blogging. So ladies, thank you for all that you do and all that you share.
Serious Writing Chops – Princess Burlap
Dayna is a damn beautiful writer. Her voice is not like anyone elses I’ve ever read. She is entirely unique. Such an awesome thing in blog world where there is sometimes a lack of individuality. Dayna has been open about her love story with “blue eyes” (possibly the first cutsie husband nickname that doesn’t annoy me), her husband who has autism.
I also never miss a Toast Post, written by her neurotic pup who happens to be waiting for the zombie apocalypse. You and me both, Toast.
Will Make You Snarf Coffee Up Your Nose – The Daily Tay
I don’t remember when I found Taylor or how but she’s probably my favorite blogger. Period. I know she’s a comedian in real life but it’s really cool when humor comes through in the written form too. Taylor nails this and somehow even when she’s talking about totally normal, daily life type stuff, she makes it fun to read. I could not get through this post without laugh/crying. I expect to see her on SNL one day.
The Blog You’ll Most Want to Pin From – Northern Belle Diaries
Lisette posts so much useful stuff! From WordPress tutorials to domestic tips (like how to remove set in oil stains or how to get that stinky smell out of towels) to delicious recipes, you’ll want to pin every post! If you use WordPress or are considering a switch, you’ll definitely want to check out her resources page.
Blogger Who is Winning Twitter – The Other Juliette
Sure, she gets carried away with the all caps but girlfriend is hilarious. This translates perfectly to her blog where it’s basically a stream of consciousness, directly from the mind of Juliette. Basically she can ramble or word vomit or whatever and it’s still amusing as hell. Follow her on twitter and try not to laugh inappropriately at your desk at work.
Best Linkup – Confessional Friday by A Blonde Ambition
When I say “best” I mean, this linkup will actually help you grow your blog. On the occasion that I do link up with Leslie, I get more page views that day from her site than I ever have from any other linkup.
Leslie also is a down to earth momma who shares about beauty, fashion, and home decor. Plus, she’s got a ten month old and baby #2 is already on the way!
Feel Smarter for Having Read It – Betsy Transatlantically
It feels like Betsy writes articles. Her posts are thought out and intelligent and she often addresses issues that might intimidate other people. She’s mature and thoughtful and I truly enjoy reading her perspective on things.
She also has shared every step of her expatriation love story that I just know is going to end in a really happy ending one of these days. Her recent post on the subject broke my heart, so I truly can’t imagine how her heart feels. I will be so thrilled for her when her husband Jon is finally in the US!
Fashion Blogger Who Is A Real Human – What Dress Code?
You know when you see a fashion blogger and you just know that they wore the outfit just for the shoot and then took it off and put on yoga pants? I know Liz in real life and she is just as stylish on a day-to-day basis as she is on her blog.
The cool thing is though, she’s stylish in an attainable way. Check out some of her recent outfits and see for yourself. She also happens to be the first person I saw really pull of a crop top, so there’s that. I aspire to be as naturally stylish as Liz. She also throws in some delicious recipes and is a beautiful photographer.
Where I Get Book Suggestions – Love Woke Me Up This Morning
Emmy is an avid reader and I’ve gotten more than a couple of great book suggestions from her. I love reading them and then discussing them with her later via comments or twitter.
Emmy attended a small, Christian college and her post How Small Christian Universities Messed Up My View of Marriage and Happiness is a post you cannot miss. We couldn’t have had more different college (and really, life) experiences but I love how obvious it is that Emmy’s heart is in her writing. Get caught up with Emmy here.
Blogger On Team Jesus Without Being Pushy – Mr. Thomas and Me
Amber and I share opposite beliefs on lots of things (starting with Jesus). She’s one of those people who talks about her faith in an inspired way that isn’t pushy. I’ve really enjoyed following along with her Milking Stool Ministry vlog series. I have never read the bible but the way she talks about her faith really fascinates me. Add on the fact that her faith seems to make her more open instead of more closed, and it leaves me wishing more religious folks were like her. Plus she is genuinely one of the most likable people in blog world. And I’d also give her an award for best eyebrows. Just sayin’.
