Your Favorite Blogs

When I typed in those very first words in 2012, I was unaware yet of the amazing world of blogging.  It wasn’t just being able to sit down and chronicle our journey; the blog opened up more than that.  I have two long time pen pals that I met through my blog that are as dear to me as any friend I see regularly.  I have learned from farmers all over this land.  I have given consolation and have been given support.  I have read the most wonderful literature.  I have followed people on their journeys around the world, have sat in homes in other places, and have been privy to the world inside via their blog.  Blogging has made me a better writer, more educated, and more connected.

I have noticed that most bloggers do not blog for very long.  I will follow a blog for awhile, commenting on each other’s articles, seeing the day to day in someone’s life, having a friendship of sorts, and then they stop writing.  For one reason or another, hundreds of blogs that I have read over the years have vanished from the blogosphere.

So my questions is to you, dear readers and friends, what are your favorite blogs to read?  What do you write if you are a blogger?  Let’s all get to know one another here and share each other’s writings and worlds and your own favorite blogs.

I love having a cup of coffee, and after writing my own blog post, be able to read inspiring, funny, and true pieces.

Blogs make the world smaller.  Sharing ideas and our lives with each other makes the world a more compassionate and comforting place and gives writers a platform.  I am looking forward to hearing about your favorites!

  1. I like your blog because I dream about doing the same thing. I love the great writers I come across with a special writing talent. Love fashion, design… things I can learn from…

    1. I just love it! It’s a world away and a way of life in our very own English corner of the world that I aspire to. I have loved your books and family stories you have let us into your lifes ups and downs. I too have gained a wonderful friendship through your blog.
      I love to read anoregoncottage too, Jami Boys is so thrifty and crafty in fact hers was the first blog I ever read and mostly for the same reasons, the recipes, canning and decorating tips and the people who follow her are so lovely. I love littlehouseliving what a lovely young woman with her little family. These are once a week reads and I enjoy catching up with their lives occasionally. I write something every now and again but I don’t stick at it as the busyness of life takes over, I would rather read other people’s.

      1. I’m gonna check out this blogs too!

    I love reading blogs that inspire me (like yours, they often are doing what I hope to do in the future!). I enjoy The Small Town Homestead ( for the same reason.

    I also like to read blogs with a focus on good writing, like . I love writing and currently blog at .

    Excited for all the blogs I’ll learn about from this post!

  3. Well, yours is certainly one. I follow some travel blogs, too, and those that deal with the personal. As for me, I started out writing about modern homesteading and insights about life on our mountainside. When I started blogging for Mother Earth News, my personal blog morphed more into personal essays of one sort or another, some poetry and just a hodge podge–whatever is going on in my life at the moment. Oh, and lots of photography. Would love to have folks come over and check it out.

    Your Blog and Midlife Fashionista are the only blogs I LOVE reading. Even though in my mind and day dreams I ponder life with chicken or being a midlife Fashionista. It is still very inspiring to me, and maybe one day 🙂
