These type of blogs are usually accompanied by a picture of a smart looking office space/nifty desk centering a Macbook and a jolly mug with a hot beverage… But since I write my blogs from my bed and my Fujitsu Siemens doesn’t have that much appreciated elegance, a picture like that would feel like a lie. Therefore I present you this smug looking goat instead.
Before I started blogging I had sort of a set internet routine. Checking e-mails, simultaneously scan BBC news and Facebook, see what the weather’s going to be like that day and checking up on my favourite blogs. Since I started blogging myself that routine has slightly changed. I still do the things I just mentioned, but usually only in between enthusiastically checking the stats on my blog. Look, someone from Croatia clicked on my blog! Welcome, you epic person! Apart from the obsessing over stats (honestly, who of you bloggers out there doesn’t love stats?) I also discovered quite a few new blogs I added to my daily routine.
I’d love to share my favourite blogs with you, so here you go.
Things I Find In The Garbage Coming across a title like that you just feel like you have to click it. And it did not disappoint in the slightest. The subtitle of the blog states: “I’m a professional scavenger and entrepreneur making a living selling curbside garbage.” And that is exactly what this blog is about. I am truly amazed by what is thrown away by people and how this blogger can live off his treasure hunting. This blog gives another dimension to ‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’.
Worth the Whisk I truly wish I came up with this awesome name for a blog. Besides that, I wish I had created it. It combines a lot of travel with a lot of amazing looking (and probably very tasty) food. The Mini Lasagnas with Pesto and Kale are on my to-bake list.
A Wee Bit of Cooking I wanted to write “Another foodblog etc. …”, but that would be rude and incorrect. Because this isn’t just another foodblog, it’s a blog with Scottish recipes and advice on visiting Scotland. I love the artwork on the blog and the personal writing style.
14 Weeks Worth of Socks Is a lifestyle and travel blog run by The Sock Mistress. There’s a wide variety of blog topics (from Disney to Feminism) and I especially love to read about the adventures of the doglets and the personal project of making transcriptions of her Granddad’s WW2 diary.
As The Bird Flies Frankie is a short story writer and makes the most incredible pictures of her travels. I love her colourful pictures and her advice on vintage shopping (abroad).
Voila, lots and lots of reading. Which blogs are you following at the moment?
