You Should Be Reading
Many of you know I have a bit of a Google Reader addiction. Maybe a bit is an understatement but I read a lot of great blogs each and every day. When Clever Girls Collective, Inc. contacted me to name 5 Fabulous Bloggers from the many I read every day, I knew it would be hard to pick just 5.
1. The Sarcastic Lab Rat by Lisa
I discovered Lisa through The SITS Girls and a program introducing different bloggers based on what they blogged about. We were both in the Donkey Tribe. I like her honesty and her writing. She has a fun to read blog and I find it easy to find things to comment about. She also has bunnies, which to me, is another reason to like her. I have a lot of pet related issues and I like to know I am not the only one.
2. And In My Corner by Jodi
She lives on the other side of North America as I do but when I read her blog, I find we have a lot stuff in common. She blogs about her life, weight loss, photography, farm and I enjoy reading it. I found her through the Power of 1 challenge I am doing through The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans blog. I am a life blogger and I write about ups and downs of life and I enjoy reading and getting inspiration from people who do the same.
3. A Merry Life by Mary
Mary’s blog is one of the first blogs that I started reading before I really got addicted to Google Reader and all of your blogs. She writes about the good, the bad and trials of weight loss. She moved half way across the world to New Zealand and I am totally jealous of that. She provides helpful tips to new bloggers looking to break into the world of blogging. She even wrote an e-book on the subject. Anyone looking to start a weight loss blog should stop by. Congratulations on finishing your triathlon. You are awesome!
4. My Everyday Adventures (of me in the City) by Jessica
The dating scene in Boston is less than stellar if you are over 30 and I have whined enough about my lack of success here in Boston. Chicago is one of my favorite cities and I have a little bit of jealousy over people living there but I really like to read about it. Her writing is funny and it makes happy to know my behavior at times is normal.
5. Getting Stitched on the Farm with Kristin Nichols
What can I say? She is a well known knitter and has a sheep farm in Western Massachusetts. Someday I will take one of her classes or weekend knitting workshops. I love her photos of the sheep and her antidotes of life on a farm. Even if you aren’t a knitter, it is a good blog to add to your reader.
There are so many great bloggers out there. It was hard to only pick 5. Since I love to find new blogs to read to feed my addiction, what are some bloggers you like?
