Do you ever feel like you're failing at this whole blogging thing? I've pretty much felt that way since I started my new job. And I know blogging isn't supposed to feel like a job but when you're an overachiever and have high expectations for yourself, it's hard not to beat yourself up when you know you're not doing the best you could. One of my goals this fall was to blog consistently 3 times a week. You know how many times I've blogged in the month of October? 7 times! But I didn't come here to be all Debby Downer. I'm sure and I hope that other bloggers feel the same way every once and awhile so I thought I would send some love out to some of my favorite people I've "met" since starting this whole blogging thing 7 months ago.
We started blogging at the same time and pretty much found each other from the beginning. She always makes sure to comment on my posts and I truly appreciate it. I love how her posts read like you are talking to an old friend. She's the perfect mix of quicky and bubbly and it comes through in her posts. Her posts range from running to home DIY. She's always got something interesting to read about. She just celebrated her 100th blog post which I'm not going to lie, I am slightly jealous about. I have some catching up to do! But such a great accomplishment/milestone!
Her and I have kitty twinsies and are both obsessed with our cats. She also shares my love of burgers and beer and has crazy curls like me. She's a fellow bookworm and book people tend to stick together.
I read Steph before I started blogging but never really commented that much. I guess that makes me a lurker...I love her IDGAF attitude and that she's not afraid to speak her mind or cuss on her blog. I feel like sometimes bloggers are afraid of offending someone or losing readers so they take the safe route but not her. I admire that because I am still trying to find my blog voice and how much or what I want to say about things. I also am genuinely impressed by the fact that she consistently has a post M-F, even when she's on one of her amazing adventures. And it's good, original stuff! She just fulfilled a huge dream of her's and I think that's amazing. I love celebrating the happy things in life. Plus she co-hosts my favorite link up, Show Us Your Books.
Number 1, her blog name is top notch but besides that fact, I love getting comments from Kristen. I don't know how she found me but I'm so glad she did. She's always got some amazing recipe she's sharing. We also share a love of the dark and macabre.
I only just recently started following and talking to Melissa. She had such kind words to say when my Gram passed away and I genuinely appreciated that she took the time to reach out to me and more than once. I thought it was such a sweet gesture since we really hadn't conversed that much. I love the openness in her writing. Bonus points because she's a baker.
What's one of your favorite blogs?
