Blogs, Blogs, Blogs

 So, I've just spent the last few days catching up on my backlog of blogs I follow updates. They really stacked up while I was gone. Who knew being absent from the internet for less than a week would cause so much work?

But I discovered something as I talked and commented and read. I have few writing blogs to read and get advice from. So, if any of you out there know of some writers' blogs I should check out, I'd dearly appreciate it if you could share them with me. Post any recommendations in a comment, please.

To make today's post easy and stress-free, I'm going to make a list of blogs I like under different subjects. There will be writing blogs, personal blogs, homesteading/farming blogs, fashion blogs, or weird/fascinating information blogs. Check them out, if any of these things are something you're into:

Writing Blogs:
Nathan Bradsford, Author -- Blog from an author and former literary agent, giving some very interesting and in-depth advice to writers everywhere. I can't help but think he's a genius.

To Write A Better Story -- Blog about a writer who also is struggling to make her way in the write world. She's a great inspiration and I love the tidbits she posts.

Personal Blogs:

365 Days to Forever -- Blog about an inspiring and sweet lady working toward her goals for personal enrichment.

Alice's Bucket List -- Blog about a15-year-old girl suffering from terminal cancer. Her zeal for life and determination to be happy despite (or maybe because of) her circumstances is nothing short of incredible in my eyes.

artist's charm -- Blog about a girl who richly enjoys life and/or rants about it, depending on her mood.

Homesteading/Farming Blogs:

Choosing Simplicity, More Than Just Survival -- Blog about this family's struggle to survive while scrapping "unnecessary" luxuries most of us take for granted and living a simpler, more natural life.
Willing Hands Organic Farm -- Blog about a family farming organically on a small plot of land.

Fashion Blogs:

Beautifully Invisible -- This girl is wildly popular for a reason! She runs a great blog, and I am totally going to steal her comment form one of these days.

we are large, people -- Blog about the fashion of a very fascinating lady. She gave me some great advice on blogging and I have appreciated her ever since.

Weird/Fascinating Information Blogs:

Discovering Alpine Birds -- It hasn't been updated in a long time, but this blog is all about the wildly interesting habits of birds. It has gorgeous pictures and very odd information, so I love it.

Freethought Radio -- Weirdest blog I've seen with very, very short posts that link to very, very long articles about whatever they find is interesting or perversely funny in our world. I LOVE IT!

I know I missed quite a lot of people, and I promise to come back to them later. But today, I'm all linked out. Have a great day, everyone. All there's left to say is our writing quote of the day:

"Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself. -- Charlie Chaplin"

Okay, so it isn't really a "writing" quote, but it's a great quote for writing, nonetheless. Well, that's all she wrote. Talk to you later! 

P.S. Don't forget those recommendations for writing blogs, please and thank you!

  6. wow Kyla, thank you. I am honoured. Funny that my Alpine Birds Blog only really started to get any attention after I put it to rest...
