The linky is "I Must Confess..." by Kirsty at My Home Truths, this week hosted by Rhianna at A Parenting Life.
But, I suppose fittingly enough for a confession theme, this week's topic is a bit difficult.
It's "blogs you love".
I like lots of blogs, but I can't list them all here. I also don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or have anyone whose blog I read think I don't like it.
(Fact: if I read or comment on your blog, I like it).
My blog reading and tracking is also a bit of a mess at the moment. Here are all the ways I am following blogs at the moment:
- updates on my Blogger dashboard
- blogs I've liked on Facebook
- blogs I've subscribed to by email
- blogs I catch up with via Twitter
- blogs I've followed on Bloglovin
- blogs I've linked to on Networked Blogs
- clicking on blogs listed in my sidebar
- clicking on blog shortcuts I've saved to my phone's home screen
- clicking on links I've saved to my browser favourites
So I'm a bit all over the place, and not all the blogs I follow/like are even listed on my sidebar.
I'm also not going to list ALL my favourite ones here - it would take too long. So here are just a few, that I tend to read most often. In no particular order:
Cranky Old Man - Joe worked in finance and is cranky, so I relate to a lot of his thoughts. He is also prolific, posting every day and always good, funny, thoughtful stuff.
You Learn Something New Every Day - I really like this premise (as it's true) and the way Emily has structured her blog, each post reminding us of this simple, pleasing fact.
My Unwelcome Stranger - Denis blogs about life seen through the lens of living with serious illness. As he is also a historian his blog is beautiful with memories, culture and history, as well as general observations.
A Patchwork Life - Tracey does beautiful crafts and takes equally beautiful photos, making me realise for the hundredth time how crap I am at photography. She is also often parenting alone - like me!
Adventures of a Middle Aged Matron - Anna writes about life as a vicar's wife and parent to teenagers and her writing is absolutely top-notch. Lovely blog.
AMFYOYO - Meggsie's blog is simple, very well written, and great. She doesn't write as often as others, but every post is a gem. She's also honest in a real way, with complaints about her husband and kids that make you gasp, laugh and nod all at once. Great reading.Also:
The Plastic Mancunian - makes me snort out loud. Read his latest on email.
Blurb From the Burbs - come back, Kath!
Princess Pandora - life from a (usually) different perspective to mine
Decoding the New Economy - the kind of economic analysis I loveAnd:
Blue Milk, Science of Mom, Caro and Co, Life in a Pink Fibro.... but really, I must stop.
What are YOUR favourite blogs?
