Ok, well obviously you technically are if you're reading this post. But are you one of those who's loyal to just a handful of blogs - or one who loads her feed list with over 100?
Soon after we got married - when I started this blog back in 2009 - I would have put myself in the "avid blog reader" category. I probably had 10 to 15 blogs I would check regularly, at least skimming every new post. But I quickly found I was reading real books less and less - including my Bible - and something had to change.
So today, I've whittled it down to 2 blogs I read regularly (good friends' blogs) and I check a handful of others on occasion. The other time I spend online, I'm usually updating Etsy, checking my email, or reading the news.
But in case you're looking for some good reads, I wanted to share a few recommendations. Of course, I can't endorse every word on every page of each of these blogs. But I love the overall tone and message of each of these for different reasons. Just to keep things simple, I haven't included any blogs of my friends in real life. I just happen to admire these from a distance.
Summer Harms for whole food recipes and godly encouragement for marriage and motherhood.
Hello from the Natos for honest, thought-provoking theological posts and great interior design.
Grand Design Co for a handy mom who loves vintage pieces and turns everything she touches to gold. (She posts very infrequently these days, but her archives are a treasure of ideas.)
Where My Heart Resides for beautiful writing and photography that capture life with her son.
Tilly and the Buttons for a British sewing fix (I can't wait until her beginning dressmaking book is available in the States!).
Want to share some of your blog favorites in the comment section? I have a feeling other readers would love to know (and so would I!).
