I’m called a blogger, meaning I keep and update a blog. However, I am a lot more than that. I’m a wife, a mother, a business woman, and gatekeeper to all that is crazy. I share my life publicly and am okay with that. So, when I was given the opportunity to write about five of my favorite blogs, I jumped at the chance. Now, they aren’t always the same, but I do find myself going back to the same ones, over and over again. They are my ideals of blogging fabulosity.
is written by my dear friend, Lindsay Maddox. Trust me, when my iGoogle opens, that is the first thing I read. I love her style, her nutty way of putting things and her Vlogs are EPIC. Lindsay inspires me to be a better blogger and a better person. If you aren’t reading her, you are missing out on ways to design your own fabulous life.
Where would I be without Angela England? She is a self-proclaimed “Renaissance Woman” and darn tootin’ she is. This girl can do anything. Teach you SEO, while homeschooling her kids, edit Blissfully Domestic and whip a room into a state of ooh’s and ahh’s with her profound knowledge. Did I mention without breaking sweat? With one hand? It does take a lot of Dr. Peppers, though. I was lucky enough to meet her last fall at Type-A Parent Conference and became a fan (and friend) quickly.
Leticia Barr is my tech-savvy friend over at Tech Savvy Mama. Her blog has been my go-to for quite some time for tech tips, as well as for the most current items regarding Internet safety and our children. My son is growing up in world unlike one we have ever seen with the availability of information and I want to have the latest news so I’m a well-informed parent.
Amanda Soule, how can you go wrong with her blog. You can’t, people. SouleMama is like sitting in front of a chocolate cake when you have PMS. You can imagine the carnage as your rip through he site, destined to find more. More like, I want to live in a farmhouse, with a wood heater and knit and craft beautifully. Yes, yes I do. I have to repeat that affirmation, as my husband and son are bona fide city slickers.
One of my idols and favorite blogs is The Pioneer Woman. I’m sorry, but it’s like one big girl crush over here. I want to be her next door neighbor. Seriously. I have to read her blog in my reader, because if I get stuck on her site, I am there for hours, days at times. It’s quite possible that I forget to take care of necessary bodily functions reading her blog and find myself sprinting to the bathroom so I don’t flood my office. Sorry if that’s TMI, but she is amazeballs.
These are five of my randomly selected favorites and my list changes daily. Blogging is an amazing forum and has connected me in ways I didn’t know possible to this world. I like to think all bloggers are part of one great-big dysfunctional family. One I am proud to be a member of.
