Today’s topic is: “What are your five can’t-miss blogs? Write about them and share some link love.”
I follow a wide variety of blogs. Some bloggers are artists or poets. Most are storytellers. A few are photographers and more than a couple are 20-somethings just trying to figure out how to make adulting work.
But the blogs I look forward to most are those that write about things I hope to do someday. I see these bloggers as my mentors, my guidance counselors. I can learn from their experiences and when I have a chance to actually get off the couch, I will be wiser and more prepared, thanks to them.
Here are my five current favorite blog destinations.
This woman in Washington is building her own tiny house! A great inspiration (and step-by-step tutorial). I can’t wait to start building mine someday soon!
This lady is currently hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from southern California to Washington state. Her daily trail journals are combined into a weekly blog post with pictures of the scenery and tales of the real-life struggles that arise during long-term hikes. I look forward to learning from her experiences so I will be more prepared for my 2026 Appalachian Trail adventure.
A Michigan woman is achieving the sustainable dream while living in town. I love her enthusiasm and she proves that you don’t need to live on a farm to grow your own food. My heart broke for her when the city made her get rid of her chickens, but I’m sure she will persevere. A green thumb after my own heart.
This blog, based in India, contains some of the most stunningly beautiful photographs of people I’ve ever seen. They are certainly frame-worthy works of art. His posts remind me to step outside my tiny bubble and remember it’s a big world out there, full of millions of interesting people and billions of interesting stories to discover.
Everything she makes looks and sounds delicious! A wonderful variety of entrees, snacks, desserts, and more made with normal, real-world ingredients. Her blog posts inspire me to put down my laptop and march off to the kitchen because I desperately want to eat them right now!
I’m always looking for fun blogs to read. Share your favorite with me in the comments.
