I Love Blogs #BlogHug


by Holly Becker (of Decor8)’s post on giving bloggers a big hug, showing appreciation, and sharing the bloggy love, I decided to join in on the fun. I follow a ridiculous amount of —via e-mail, Facebook. twitter, Pinterest, and via the 2 apps I use on my iPad (Flipboard being my favourite).

I’ve shared my love for blogs several times here, and will be doing so again (and again) in the future. I confess that I don’t watch the news (I always say I don’t have cable as the reason why, but even if I did. . .), or read newspapers, but I always find time and the desire to read and flip through dozens of blogs a day. I’m so inspired by what bloggers share visually and what they say.

One of the first blogs I ever read was SF Girl by Bay, written by Victoria, who is based in San Francisco. I loved and still love her sense of , her décor ideas and her gorgeous pictures of beautiful San Francisco. From there, I started reading tons of other fabulously inspiring décor and design blogs, like Holly Becker’s Decor8, DesignSponge, Poppytalk (which I love because it is local to my own city, ) and so many others.

I love blogs of all kinds

Other than creative blogs, I love reading blogs written by my bloggy friends, on a variety of topics. Isra Hashmi inspires me on so many levels. I’m kind of a fan girl, really. She’s currently working on a year-long project all about finding and creating happiness. Her happiness challenge gets me thinking each week about doing simple things that make me happy. I hope to have a happier year this year, thanks in part to Isra, who writes the blog The Frugalette. Isra and her family are debt free, which is super inspiring, as well!

    I like different sites for different reasons! Mallery at the Horrible Housewife just cracks me up, and Amber at Jade Louise Designs always has all the BEST ideas! I also love Tonia at The Gunny Sack for recipes!

    • Thanks for the recommendations! I'll be checking them out for sure. I could use some laughter, so The horrible Housewife one will be high on my list

  2. I love Isra's blog, The Frugalette! She has such great ideas! My blog is: http://www.confessionsofanover-workedmom.com/ which you already know :) and one of my favorites to read is http://www.cre8tivecompass.com/mag/ because she has great crafts.

  3. Aww, thank you so much for the blog love! Hugs right back at ya! Thank you for giving me the warm fuzzy feeling in the middle of a blizzard. :)

  4. Tazim-great visiting your blog via the #bloghug hashtag. It has been fun discovering new sites through Holly's idea.

    Right now, I am obsessed with food blogs. Mostly for the photography, I think! My favorite healthy food blogger is Oh My Veggies!

  6. Great idea! I follow a ton of other blogs. I need to check out Flipboard, I've never heard of it! I follow quite a few food blogs, and some party blogs. some of my absolute favorites are Bakerella and Hostess With The Mostess.

    I love this post!! Power to the blogs!

    I read a lot of recipe and craft blogs!

  8. The very first blog I started following was the TomKat Studio. I loved how simple but elegant her party planning ideas were. She's huge now and seeing her grow along the way, while still staying grounded is a really cool thing.

  9. Brilliant list! I started following SF Girl today!

  10. I follow several humorous parenting blogs. I agree that Isra is inspirational :) lately I’ve been really into social media and blog improvement type blogs.

    This is such a good idea. I love the blog Mama and Baby Love. Her blog inspires me to live more naturally and parent more naturally.

  12. I love a wide variety of blogs, from those that are similar to me to those that are completely different. I read a lot of craft and recipe blogs, because while I can't do either of those things even remotely well, I enjoy looking at others' crafts and food and thinking "maybe someday my talent will kick in!"

  14. Hi Tazim, what a lovely post! I got into blogs and blogging recently. One of my favourite blogs is Crappy Pictures. I also like Modge. My own blog is: http://iamthemilk.wordpress.com

  15. Hi Tazim,
    I love spending time reading blogs about fashion, home décor, diy projects and any beauty blogs.
    A few of my fave are “With love from, Kat”, “Made by Girl”, and “The Stylish Housewife”.
    These blogs are what inspired me to start my own blog in the beginning of 2013. I mostly blog my OOTD’s, I am just learning the trick of the trade, so hopefully will get better with time… I would love for you to check it out at http://macaroonsandballoons.blogspot.com/
