Anyone who knows me, even for a second, will figure out that I love to read. I always have a book with me, no matter where I am at any given moment. I’m the one at the stoplight, book in hand, trying to finish a paragraph before the light turns green. It’s become a game among family and friends. “What book does she have with her now?”
I also love people. I’m fascinated by them. I like to watch them and hear their stories.
These two parts of me are what draw me to blogs. A good blog satisfies my desire to read and gives me an opportunity to peek into someone’s life and learn a bit about who they are. And, sometimes, the really good ones teach me a something about myself.
Today, I’d like to share with you a few of the blogs that I’ve enjoyed reading. I find them entertaining, motivating, and even inspiring. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I have.
Just My Blog is an entertaining blog written by Lindsay that often makes me laugh out loud. I especially love the little stories she tells about her daughters, Pumpkin and Dumpling. They never fail to make me smile. What I like most about this blog is its lack of a niche. She writes about many different things and I find the variety fresh and fun. I’ve yet to find a single post on her blog that I didn’t like.
I discovered this blog through a recent post on Lindsay’s blog (mentioned above) and was immediately hooked. It’s the story of a mother’s tragic loss of her baby girl at 5 days old and the courage to deal with that grief and find a way to give her daughter’s brief life a powerful purpose. I can’t even begin to imagine the grief she faces every day. My heart hurts for her. But, at the same time, I admire the courage it takes for her to write her blog and tell Cora’s story, so that other mother’s out there can learn from her experience. She’s a strong, brave woman and I want to do my part in making sure that Cora’s story is heard around the world.
This is one you have to visit because it’s just plain funny. It’s more for viewing than actually reading, but the comments are sometimes as laugh-out-loud funny as the photos. Fair warning though. If laughing hysterically tends to make you pee a little, visit the bathroom before you visit this site, otherwise you might end up with a damp chair.
If you enjoy these blogs as much as I do, be sure to pass them on so others can enjoy them, too. If you know of any good blogs you’d like to share as well, even if it’s your own, please leave a comment below and tell me about it.
