I am frequently impressed by how good some other folks blogs are. Sometimes it’s just a particular post. But often it’s everything they post, as in the cases of both Julia Munroe Martin and Melissa Crytzer Fry. Both writers of high-caliber who take time to write thoughtful pieces. Currently Julia is doing a blog a day, a production which astounds me. That takes a lot of commitment –even just to do it for a month (as she is). And Melissa loves the desert where she lives and writes, and delivers it to us in wonderful photos with themed posts to accompany the visuals.
Kristen is a woman with a mission. But she doesn’t forget that while she is gathering folks to her, she must give them something of value. In Kristen’s case it is a promise to amuse them.
This young writer reminds me of an Appalachian Reese Witherspoon. Self disparaging and tender, Jolina writes with unpretentious abandon and straight from the heart. If you want to laugh till you wet yourself check out her post where she describes the day she offered to deliver a friend’s payroll to the bank.
Leah writes and lives in SoCal, with her husband and daughter Sophie. Her blog is a riotous rainbow celebration of color, the photos a visual candy jar of images and light that never fails to lift me up.
Writer Natalia Sylvester’s blog is one of my favs. No matter what topic she chooses, her thoughtful writing is cool and lucid, like a deep clear lake in the mountains.
And lastly (but not leastly) Christine Grote’s beautiful photos and writing.
What are some of your favorite blogs?
