One of my December goals was to create a blog schedule, and as part of my schedule, I decided to post some blogs that I’ve recently liked, or have been on my radar lately. When I started blogging about product reviews, I didn’t participate in anything. I just hoped that people would come and read, and my numbers were low. Through the various blog challenges and series, and by using tags and categories, I’ve noticed a significant increase in my numbers (even though I’ve read that you shouldn’t just rely on numbers), and a sense of community is created when I comment on others and they link back to me, or share comments in return. I’ve also thought more about my blog in general, and I think it’s becoming more of a lifestyle blog…perhaps? Thoughts are still forming in my brain. On to noteworthy blogs:
I Kissed My Date Goodnight
Ruth’s blog is a fresh of breath air as she describes herself as a “…single girl trying to navigate life, faith, and the thirty-something dating scene.” Her blog focuses on dating and recounts times of putting herself out there, something which I need to work on. I especially liked here post People Change (But Please Don’t Change Too Much) as she addresses the reality of change within a relationship and how important it is to be aware of the possibility of change.
Ali Does it Herself
Ali’s blog describes her “…adventures in grown-up living…” and is a great blog for DIY stuff. She has a ton of things on there, and will definitely help ignite my creativity and I really liked her Paper Flower Bouquet tutorial. I just might have to make some.
New DIYs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, whether you like it or not.
Journey With Destiny
Destiny is a twenty-something grad student from a small town in Idaho, who moved to Chicago to pursue her dreams of being a teacher. She “…began [her] blog with hopes of documenting this time of transition and growth as [she goes] from college student to working professional to Special Education teacher.” I met her through the Lovely Letters Exchange and her blog can be categorized as a lifestyle blog. I especially love her blog look. It’s very clean and consistent, and her blog post images are wonderful too!
