I love blogs – obviously, seeing as I have one.
But I also have a whole list of favorites which I love reading. I realize blogs can easily eat up far too much time, so I totally understand the need to wrestle these things under control.
But if you have some free time, and you’re looking for something fun to read, here’s my list of blogs I’m enjoyinging right now:
A Holy Experience – Gotta love Ann Voskamp. Beautiful photography, and spiritual wisdom and truth that make this blog like a daily devotional.
Enjoying the Small Things – Once again, fantastic photography, and such a vibrant, joyful spirit behind Kelle Hampton’s writing. I love her focus on making each day magical for her kids, and loving the life you’ve been given.
Becoming Minimalist – Fantastic for motivating even the smallest urges to purge. I find Joshua Becker’s ideas for simplifying refreshing and inspiring.
Ali Edwards – I started reading this one for the scrapbooking content, but now I love it because she has fantastic ideas for recording family memories in general. I enjoy her photography, and reading her thoughts. Her taste in most things is excellent.
Centsational Girl – Amazing decorating blog. Very inspiring DIY ideas. Love her stuff.
Simple Mom – Oh, where do I start? I love the organizational ideas, the tips for healthy living, her reading suggestions, etc, etc. I’ve learned a lot from this blog.
The Wellness Warrior – Very health focused. Great food ideas, tons of information on what to eat and how to add healthy habits to your life. Her “Inspiration Board” is incredible. I’ve written many blog posts in the past year which were inspired by the quotes she shares every few days.
Jeff Goins, Writer – Lots of thoughts, challenges, and encouragement for improving with writing and blogging. Reading this blog is what got me to finally start calling myself a “writer”. Just put it out in the open. Somehow, it makes a difference.
Putting Me Together – Fun fashion stuff, if you’re into that kind of thing. I didn’t think I was, but when I stumbled across this and started reading, I realized it could be the answer to simplifying my closet even more. Mix and match, I tell ya. I love seeing her creativity in combining her clothing in different ways.
Oh She Glows – Tons of extremely delicious, healthy recipes which I use on a regular basis.
I also enjoy a number of blogs written by friends that cover a variety of topics. I’m hesitant to share links, however, as some are more private than others. But if you have a blog and would like to share your link, please share your link in the comment section and we can all meet new friends. 🙂
And here’s an extra fun little tidbit: If you like reading blogs, and don’t use a blog reader, you should seriously think of trying one. I use Google Reader, meaning that I sign up for an account, add all the blogs I want to keep up with on a regular basis, and whenever any of those blogs has a new post, it pops up automatically in my reader. I never have to go to each blog individually, just to find out if they’ve posted something new.
Huge time saver, very handy.
Okay, I’ve shared my favorites with you, now it’s your turn! I would love to hear what blogs you enjoy reading – I’m always up for trying something new!

Oh, sounds like a lot of good blogs you have listed – I will have to check them out sometime. The blogs I follow are a mix of personal blogs, decor blogs, food blogs, and craft blogs. I am sure I could always find more to follow but time management is not a strength of mine! 🙂 And if anyone else wants to see our journey to building our own home (we just started running the electrical wiring yesterday) you can follow us here (and learn how a regular mom and dad of 5 kids do life): http://thousandsquarefeet.blogspot.ca/
The majority of the blogs I read are all personal blogs. Perhaps I should start venturing out a bit more…however, as you say, the addictiveness plays a big factor then!!!
But yes, of course I have my own blog to share: http://andrea-just-as-i-am.blogspot.com !!
Lately, I’ve been enjoying:
* Simple Mom http://simplemom.net
* Such the Spot http://blog.suchthespot.com
* Lisa-Jo Baker http://lisajobaker.com
* Shaun Groves http://shaungroves.com
Also, Since you mentioned writing…perhaps you might like to join me at the Re:Write Conference? I’m really looking forward to it: http://rewriteconference.com/.
