I know that I enjoy reading a number of blogs almost everyday. Are you looking for some new blogs to read? While a lot of my day-to-day is here in “think about how to improve resources for cancer survivors land” I also appreciate reading things not at all cancer related. Just for fun, here are my top 10 favorite blogs to read. Reading is one of my favorite activities and home improvement/DIY/design/fashion are all things that I love so I tailor my blog reading to those things. Some I’ve been reading for over a year now and some are fairly new to me 🙂
[list_item]enJOY it by Elise Blaha Cripe.[/list_item]
This blog brought me into the world of blogging. I have no idea how I found it but this blog has completely changed my entire life. Elise writes this fabulous mixture of personal, craft, and business related posts. With her blog as inspiration, I started my own blog by having my husband convert our wedding website into a place where I could write almost daily. I maintained that blog for over a year, with posts going live 4 days/week. (Feel free to check it out…a lot of the photo links are currently not working because of something technical my husband did haha…I’m working on fixing them slowly) When Lacuna Loft was born, my personal blog took a back seat but the lessons I learned there were invaluable. Elise’s blog also made me realize that I could try and make something “real” and awesome through the medium of blogging…and here we are.
[list_item]A CUP OF JO.[/list_item]
A CUP OF JO is run by Joanna Goddard. Her writing includes musings on motherhood, NY City, fashion and beauty, among other topics and is one of my favorite blogs to read. Her voice is so personable and approachable…you just want to be her friend 🙂
[list_item]A Beautiful Mess.[/list_item]
A Beautiful Mess is another for-profit blog that brings to light some of their business-y behind the scenes from time to time. They also have a great mix of design, household + personal DIY projects, recipes, and fun fashion posts. The writing style is very down to earth and conversational. The two women who run the blog have put together quite a team of writers/editors/cool people and have produced a good place to add to your list of blogs to read 🙂
[list_item]The Beauty Department.[/list_item]
The Beauty Department is a blog with articles posted several times a week about everything beauty. They do makeup, nail, and hair tutorials along with so much more. From skincare to makeup bags to the hidden intricacies of the cat eye, the ladies behind this blog create easy to follow posts and tutorials while offering insights on the latest, greatest, and cheapest products out there to get the look you want.
[list_item]Shut Up and Run.[/list_item]
The tone of this blog is hilarious. The author details her running and triathlon escapes with self-deprecating humor. She also offers boundless enthusiasm and motivation towards getting oneself off the couch and onto the sidewalk with her simple motto…shut up and run!
This blog is HUGE. It fills my feedly feed (hmm that is redundant haha) daily and I sift through the ones that look interesting. It is a great go-to for home improvement type of projects/ideas/how-tos.
[list_item]The Glamorous Housewife.[/list_item]
Vintage fashion isn’t always my favorite and I don’t intend on becoming much of a vintage clothes wearing housewife (maybe a jumpsuit wearing housewife?). Nevertheless, this blog is well done and entertaining to read. The outfits are fun and the hair tutorials are relevant even for those who don’t seek a vintage look in all they do.
[list_item]Humans of New York.[/list_item]
This website is one of my favorite places on the internet. It is filled with little snippets of people’s personal stories and has phenomenal pictures. You could really get lost for hours here.
Do you have any favorites that aren’t on the list? Would you consider adding any of these to your daily list of blogs to read? Let us know!
