On reading blogs

Seth Godin encouraged his readers this morning to read more blogs. He points out that they're free, full of good information, and a respite in a way from the noisier more marketing focused messages we're subjected to each day. Of course, I enthusiastically agree!

So, I thought I'd share some of the blogs I enjoy reading regularly.  

In addition to Seth's, the two other broad categories of blogs I like are food and things I think will make me laugh.

  • When I need some healthy inspiration: Oh She Glows and Love and Lemons are just lovely and delicious.
  • When I'm having a mom moment: Scarry Mommy is usually good for a quick laugh at some of the absurd moments that happen regularly with kids- though I don't know if it counts as a blog. However, most of the people contributing articles have blogs of their own that you can find if you enjoy a particular person's style.
  • I also love the big-time blogger Glennon Melton. She's hilarious and inspiring and just so, so right about a lot of things. The Bloggess by Jenny Lawson is raw and ridiculous. It makes me laugh and feel a little uncomfortable at the same time-- which somehow is a good thing.

Listing these just now, I realized that I've also read all of their books-- and each I loved as much as their daily material on the blog.

If you have a blog you write or enjoy reading, let me know! I'd love to check it out.
