As you know, I read a lot. And as a blogger, I read a lot of blogs. In truth, I peruse quite a lot of blogs in the course of a week. You can find just about anything on a blog. Whether looking for reviews on products, reading parenting stories, or scouring the web for fitness tips, recipes, deals, and faith boosters, I find a lot of information on a lot of blogs. There are many that make me chuckle, some that keep my faith in check, a few that I have come to love. They are fabulous. As in extraordinary, amazingly good, wonderful.
Here are Five Fabulous Blogs that I LOVE to read…
I found Mom’s Toolbox last year when I stumbled upon her Bible in 90 days posts. I immediately subscribed to the RSS, liked the Facebook, and followed on Twitter. Amy’s posts are heartfelt, and often speak to whatever situation I am in. Whether Blogging through the Gospels, sharing SOAP, or giving quick tips, it is obvious that her desire is to help other Christian Mom’s grow in their faith as they grow as mothers. I like that.
I found Alfonso’s site, Angry Trainer Fitness, a few months ago, quite by accident. I had searched for protein supplements and ran across one of his posts. I appreciated his “in your face” approach to writing about health and fitness, and the fact that he doesn’t pull any punches. But once I read his “What is Angry Trainer Fitness” page, I was hooked. I can’t stand all of the “get thin quick” schemes out there, and he takes them on without batting an eye. My favorite articles are his “fast food fixes,” in which he evaluates the worth (or non-worth) of menu items and gives his opinion of the least likely to kill you options and the avoid at all costs options, and his “Top 10s”.” I follow Alfonso on Facebook and Twitter, and enjoy reading his daily morning challenges to make the day the best it can be. Oh, yah, and he’s bald. Which is cool.
Michelle is another mommy blogger that does reviews and giveaways on Flying Giggles and Lollipops. Of course, I subscribe to her feed, and love reading her posts. She writes about motherhood honestly, and with a sincerity that I appreciate. Like in her “Being a Mother” post, where she wrote, “Some mornings I wish they would just sleep in or watch some early morning cartoons. Other mornings I pray that these early morning conversations never end.” Man, she popped the words right out of my mouth! You can keep up with all the flying giggles and lollipops antics on Facebook and Twitter.
Laura, author of Got Chocolate, is quite possibly one of the sweetest people I know in the blogosphere, which is incredible, since she writes a chocolate blog. She is quick to compliment others and offer encouragement wherever she can. And, she makes me drool on my keyboard. Routinely. Her Chocolate Covered Mondays nearly undo all of my hard work every week. But, I live vicariously through her. I routinely pop onto her Facebook or send her messages on her Twitter with questions or comments about chocolate, and love it when she takes the time to respond. Her Birds Nest Easter Cup Cakes are quite possibly one of the cutest chocolate creations I have ever seen. Having such a specific niche is not easy in the world of blogging, but she makes it look like it is! I admire her tenacity, and fervor!
A site I just discovered, while trying to find healthier recipes, is Skinny Taste. And does Gina ever have the MOTHERLOAD of low fat recipes! I could spend HOURS on her site, and never cook a thing, but feel as if I have feasted with kings! Nom nom nom. I just love that she breaks down the calorie/fat/protein/carb/fiber content of each meal. She has recipes designated by WW point value (both old and new system), as well. Yup, this is one food blog I am following like a hawk! Stay up to date on Skinny Taste with Facebook and Twitter.
Of course, there are many others that I love. Perhaps I will do another post and do my top ten? top fifty?
