Today's challenge is to share five of your favorite blogs. I have been reading and following blogs for so many years now, and my favorites are constantly rotating. I have favorite fashion blogs, diy blogs, lifestyle and family blogs, inspirational blogs, and every now and then even a food blog. Many of them have followers in the tens of thousands.
Since I began this blog challenge, though, I have found so many new, wonderful blogs. Blogs written by people more like myself, people that I can relate to. They may be smarter, funnier, or more stylish than I am, but I find something in them that inspires me. Now, I feel like I have barely begun to scratch the surface of finding my favorites, so I can't possibly narrow it down to just five. Instead, here are five ways that I have been inspired by blogs lately:
2. Pictures are worth a thousand words. This is so obvious and cliche, but I can't begin to tell you how inspired I am by all of the beautiful photography that I see on blogs. It motivates me to step it up and learn how to improve my own photography skills.
3. I am not alone. How comforting and reassuring it is to know that someone else feels the way that I do. Someone else shares the same fears and insecurities, or even the same hopes and dreams. I love when I stumble across a blog post and feel like I could have written it myself (if I was only so eloquent).
4. Reading the writing. I am such a visual person, so I am drawn first to the pretty things. The blogs with the best pictures and the best designs. But I love reading when someone really has something to say, and they are really good at saying it. I'm inspired to dig deeper and think harder.
5. Get out there. Reading about other people's hobbies, travels, and life experiences inspires me to broaden my own horizons. Sometimes I forget to get out of my own little bubble and try something new. A healthy dose of jealousy is an awfully good motivator.
What else have I left out? What have you been inspired by lately?
