This week for Listmania, Deb from Home Life Simplified has suggested listing our 5 most favourite blogs plus 5 new blogs we have just discovered and liked.
As someone who has 222 blogs in her feed reader this has been a little hard to pick the 10 needed. I love reading blogs and have many different types, Australian and International. Crafty and Foodie. Blogging and Opinionated. Organising and Decorating.
5 All Time Favourite Blogs – the ones I read first and everyday.
Life is a Journey not a Destination - Libby shares her everyday life. I love it because we have a few things in common, we are both vegetarian (although I eat some fish), we have 2 kids, we are Stay At Home Mums, we both love shopping and we both love travelling (she has done it several times and me – well just once). Libby also posts ‘The Week That Was’ every week which is where I got my inspiration for doing so. (and yes she knows!)
My favourite post or series of posts is her Travel – USA category because I love the US and she has seen many parts of it. She also has many You Tube videos you can check out.
IHeart Organizing – Truly a wonderful blog that has so much eye candy and great organisational ideas. What I love about this blog is that when Jen realises something isn’t working she reworks it to make it work again.
The trouble is picking a favourite post… I think the IHeart Home Tour as it showcases in one spot the latest room specific posts.
The Gluten Free Scallywag – Jas is an Aussie blogger and is the most amazing cook and she shares her yummy recipes with us all. The past 2 Christmases Jas has produced Gluten Free Magazines – for free. They are so beautiful and have such yummy recipes.
I am having so much trouble picking a favourite post as they are all good, so I’ll link to her recipe index page instead.
Hooked On Houses – I love house design and home interiors. In many movies and tv shows I am checking out the set design rather than the what the actors are saying. That’s what I love about the US blog Hooked on Houses, Julie showcases houses seen on movies and tv shows as well as her own beautiful house and some of her readers.
Her house posts are my favourites – such a beautiful home.
A Little Delightful – Bianca has a gorgeous blog and she shares wonderful organisation ideas and great printables. As she is an Aussie, she has printables suited for us, which is great.
I love her organised posts, I just don’t know how she comes up with these ideas. I am glad she does!
Five Blogs I Recently Discovered
Organized Jen – Libby actually got me onto You Tube videos, I quickly got addicated and Organized Jen was one of them. Jennifer started on You Tube and now has a blog. She lives in the US and organizes everything. I have learnt heaps from her!
My favourite posts so far are Jen’s Week In Review Posts, love reading posts like that.
My favourite blog post of hers is when she shared a speech she did in her uni class: Gluten is Poison sharing with her class mates what is Gluten and why celiacs cannot eat anything at anytime. Plus what lessons it’s taught her.
Gluten Dude - this is my most recent find. It’s a US gluten free blog written by a guy. He is really funny and brings up things I never expect – which is great.
I like so many of his posts but the ‘Is this Gluten Free‘ feature is a great idea. He has a list of products that tell you what’s in them and whether people have spoken to the company or not. He encourages people to add to the list. Such a great resource.
My Pigeon Pair – is another Aussie blog and yes I read it for eye candy. Such gorgeous home organisational ideas as well as practical ones like Managing the Family Finances and having a ‘Tot School’ which is sharing ideas about showing your child things about numbers and letters before they hit formal schooling.
Got to check out her posts in catergory Beautiful as the posts are just that: beautiful
Food Loves Writing – Beautiful food, great writing and fantastic photos make an excellent combination for a blog. That’s what this US blog is all about. Yummy treats shared with great photos.
My favourite section is the recipe index as there are many many recipes to tempt you.
