Once Erin posted her blog crush linkup I knew I wanted to participate and share my favorite blog reads, too. I love finding new blogs, love being inspired by those around me and love being pushed to be better. Something that the best blogs teach me to do every single day.
1) Casey Leigh
Casey in one of the most genuine, loving, sincere blogger’s out there. She is a mom of three, an artist, a business owner, a wife and has the funkiest style. I love being inspired by her images and how she always writes from the heart.
I found Erin through a guest post she did on the Daybook last year and I am so happy I did. She is so business savvy, as in I want to sit on a couch with her and pick her brain about just about everything. She is also funny and makes me laugh daily. What’s not to love?
Natalie inspires me with her amazing writing ability (I am in awe of good writing) and her love for her family and New York City. She is so honest and open about how she lives her life and just about every thing she writes I find myself nodding my head and agreeing with.
This blog is the reason I decided to start my own. It all started with a pin I found on Pinterest. It showed Julia in a super cute (as always) outfit and it drew me to her blog. I didn’t even know blogs existed at that point and through her I found every blog I read today. It doesn’t hurt that she also has the cutest style and the best head of hair I have ever seen.
Kendi is a pure style blogger. She doesn’t dress flashy or super trendy, but her outfits always look great. Always. She has a funny writing style and also happens to be really nice. I emailed her back when I had about 2 followers and she wrote right back praising my blog (looking back it was embarrassingly awful) and I am so grateful for that. Nice always wins in my book.
6) The Daybook
I’m pretty sure every single person who blogs reads the Daybook. Why? Sydney is real, has amazing style that is unique, has the cutest family and takes photographs that I drool over. I quite possible stalk her online. She should be frightened of me.
I just recently found this blog and I spent about 6 hours pouring through her archives and devouring everything she writes. I am drawn to great writing and stories of family and life and this blog has it all. Plus honesty and four kids. Love.
8) Cara Loren
Another recent find and another possible stalking situation. Cara is so gorgeous and has a really funky style that I find myself pinning obsessively. She also has great tutorials.
This is a blog that centers around Bridget and her five (five!) kids. Her health and wellness series inspired me to get my family more healthy and is my new obsession. Her writing is also funny and it makes me feel like she is sitting right next to me having a conversation.
Carly is one of (if not the) nicest blogger’s out there. She has been a supporter of me since the beginning and has taught me how to respond to others in the blogging world. She is genuine and had great posts on just about everything you need to know. I heart her.
