A Few of My Favorite Things: Blogs

by Elizabeth on August 3, 2011 · 13 comments

in blogs, favorites, i love a good list, links ahoy

I’ve sort of done this before, with blogs my awesome friends write and my favorite food blogs, but I’ve never actually listed my absolute favorite blogs.  The ones I have to read every day.  I like all of these for different reasons, or so I thought, until I looked more closely.  The majority of these bloggers have a distinct “voice”.  As I read their words, I feel like they are talking to me.  That’s what keeps bringing me back day after day.

So in no particular order, my 10 favorite blogs:

  1. The Frugal Girl
  2. Liberal Simplicity
  3. The Pioneer Woman
  4. Annie’s Eats
  5. How Sweet It Is
  6. Barefoot Foodie
  7. Annie Blogs
  8. The Finer Things in Life
  9. Joy the Baker
  10. Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

So those are the blogs I can’t live without.  What are your favorites?

I love The Pioneer Woman and Smart Bitches too.

Two that I really love that always make me giggle are Dear blank, please blank (www.dearblankpleaseblank.com) and Not Always Right (www.notalwaysright.com.

I sometimes read Not Always Right, but I’ve never read Dear Blank. That is SO funny! Thanks for sharing!

I never got into the Pioneer Woman, mostly because her recipes are a little too heavy in the butter for me and my weight ambitions.
I’m pretty so obsessed with The Non-Consumer Advocate to the point of embarrassment.

I do like The Pioneer Woman’s recipes, but mostly I like her confessions posts. I like her style of writing and her humor. She’s a bit random, just like me. 🙂

I have a love/hate relationship with The Non-Consumer Advocate. Sometimes she crosses that fine line between frugal and cheap, and I really dislike that.

Ahh . . . but what a fine line it is . 😉

Ooh, I’m so excited to be included on your “must-read” blog list!

I also adore The Frugal Girl and Annie’s Eats. I read so many blogs it’s hard to pick favorites, but Katrina Kenison’s Ordinary Day Journal is definitely high up on the list. Her prose is beautiful and always makes me think. http://www.katrinakenison.com/blog/

Of course my BBF (best blogging friend – I totally just made that up btw) would be on this list! 🙂

I’ll have to go check out that blog…sounds lovely!

Aww, thank you! I’m so pleased to be on your can’t-live-without list… that makes me feel very special. 🙂

Your blog was one of the very first ones I started reading and the very first blog I subscribed too. I’m so glad that you are just as cheerful and have just as much to say now as you did two years ago.

Ack! I forgot to say which are my favorites. Hmm. Probably my most favorite blog is Enjoying the Small Things because Kelle takes beautiful (but not perfect) pictures, and because she’s always looking at the bright side.

I also enjoy SouleMama.

Off to check those out…thanks for the suggestions. I have a feeling my Google Reading is going to bursting at the seams soon!


12 Amy @ Finer Things August 5, 2011 at 11:21 pm

What an honor! Thank you for including me. 🙂 One of my favorites is BettyBeguiles. LOVE her voice!

Great list! Some of my faves on there, and some I clearly need to check out!
