Time to share the blogging love and give a shout out to my favourite blogs. I find that these days its not the traditional media I turn to for advice, ideas and inspiration, but my fellow bloggers. We’re a clever bunch you know.
So without further ado here are the blogs I think everyone, blogger or not, should get up close and friendly with ASAP.
The Dexterous Diva – Jo Gifford is my guru for all things that could possibly be labelled content creation. Blogging for business, pop up Pinterest workshops, repurposing content, you name it she’s got it covered. She’s creative, smart and incredibly generous. Her enthusiasm is infectious and the fact she does it while living with several debilitating long-term health conditions simply puts me to shame.
Rosalilium – the blogging bootcamp queen who set up Blog Every Day in May (of which this post is one of my contributions) has been creating content on her blog for years, but its her blogging nous I turn to her for.
The Freelance Lifestyle – great resources for freelancers delivered to you in a fun and practical package by the fabulous Emma Cossey.
Sigrun – I recently discovered this Icelandic lady who as a business architect has made it her mission to help anyone turn their passion into profit. Helping you identify your passion first of course. She may not be a prolific blogger but she makes her content count.
Fashion & Beauty
The Small Things Blog – former hairdresser Kate’s hair styling tips are addictive, and most importantly are not hard to achieve even a for the low maintenance type such as myself. She does tend to blog about her kids frequently which I skip (I’m not fan of parenting blogs, I have my own child, I don’t want to read about tother peoples). It’s all about the hair for me. I’m simply amazed by the endless creative ideas this lady has about styling hair.
Apartment Therapy – my go to interiors bible. Full of great style tips, organisation advice, Ikea hacks, home maintenance motivation and more. I love it.
Swoon Worthy – the self-proclaimed ‘home of eclectic boho glam’ this is an interiors blog with some serious swagger. Her style may not be everyone’s thing – it’s mine with several bucket full of glam thrown in – but I’ve learnt some great tips from Kimberley, such as creating a mood board, how to use colour and a tips for creating a knock-out gallery wall that I’m hoping to implement any day now.
So there you have it. A quick and dirty run down of the bloggers I turn to for inspiration, aspiration and information.
I always have my ear to the ground for new and interesting sources of inspiration so I’ll look forward to reading the other #BEDM posts today. Or if you want to share your favourite bloggers tell me about them in the comments below.
