Every time I find a new blog I like, I add it to my Google Reader, and right now let’s just say I have a lot of blogs I like. I used to list hundreds of them here, but lately I’ve been thinking how nice it would be to feature the ones I love the most, my favorites, the ones that always inspire, that have me stopping in my tracks to read every time they post a new entry.
These are the blogs that share our passions, whether that means a focus on whole foods or a love for talking about truth or a way of making us stop and see everyday beauty (and in the best cases, all three).
While these are not the only blogs I love, they are some of the ones I love best:
- Not Without Salt: Ashley Rodriguez constantly blows me away with her photography, insight and recipes. One of my favorite food blogs ever.
- Katie’s Pencil Box: Reading Katie’s blog makes me look differently at life, counting up the good gifts we’re given every day. Bonus: she has the best wardrobe of anyone I’ve seen.
- Cranny + Me: I have talked about Sarah’s blog so much, I feel like she’s a part of my life here in Nashville! Beautiful perspective, beautiful style, a breath of fresh air in the midst of my workdays.
- Honey + Salt: My blog friend Joanna has become my real-life friend Joanna because she is unlike anyone else I know in her ability to make truth intersect with her everyday life. Reading her posts is like washing my mind with what’s worth thinking about.
- Happy Jack Eats: Jacqui and I call our blogs twins because they were born on the same day back in August 2008. Since then, I’ve read every post she’s written, come to consider her a dear friend and still find regular inspiration and amazement at her effortless prose.
- Rachel Eats: Engaging stories from a lovely writer living in Italy? I’m sold.
- A Sweet Spoonful: I love the way Meg’s posts weave in clips from recent media outlets and quotes from books she’s reading, right along with stories about her everyday life in Seattle. She writes in this way that makes you feel like you are being carried along into her story, and it’s completely charming.
- Deliciously Organic: Carrie went grain-free last year and posts the most inspiring, I-want-to-go-make-that-now recipes focused on whole foods that I know of online. Trusted source of all things recipe—and beautiful photos, to boot.
- Honey & Jam: I’m such a fangirl about Hannah’s food and nature photography but I really mean this: when she publishes a book, I’ll be the first one to buy.
