Once upon a time in the days before Facebook, I had a little blog. My friends had blogs too. I read theirs and they read mine and we all commented on each others’. It was fun. Then everyone got busy and joined Facebook and don’t blog anymore. Now I have nothing to read. Okay, I have millions of blogs to read, but I have choice anxiety. I need suggestions.
What kind of blogs do I like? Well, off the top of my head, I like parenting blogs (like the uber-popular Dooce and Girl’s Gone Child, etc.) and design blogs (Design Sponge is amazing). Anything with pretty pictures of things people have made. Knitting blogs are awesome, even though I almost never knit anything myself. Some smaller blogs I’ve found and love include Saipua (so many beautiful flowers!), Vaka Design (sadly she hasn’t blogged in ages. Come back, Vaka!), Sýstraseiður (this one’s in Icelandic, but it has lots of pretty pictures), and Litla Skvís (a friend of a friend who makes beautiful things. It’s from Iceland but in English.) I’m sure there are others I’m forgetting!
Having said all that, I’m totally open-minded and will read blogs on just about any topic. Personal, feminist, expat, style, entertainment, photography, travel…it’s all good!
TL;DR: So dear readers, can anyone recommend some super awesome blogs? What are your favourites? And if you have a blog yourself, tell me about it!
