Question of the Week: Question #21

Have a question? I'd love to hear it, so feel free to email me (mellow1422 [at] aol) or ask me on Facebook or Twitter, friends! Today's question comes to us from Shardé, who asks...

What are your top 3 favorite blogs?
Here's a mind-boggling question: What did we do before we had blogs? It's hard to imagine now, but just a few years ago, our worlds were completely different. We didn't know the words blog, blogging or blogosphere. We couldn't wrap our heads around the idea that we could hit publish, and within 10 minutes, our words could be read by people halfway around the world. And now, actually, we can't imagine our lives without these blogs. There are millions of blogs on millions of subjects -- everything from lifestyle blogs to mommy blogs to health blogs to entertainment blogs -- and we all read blogs for millions of different reasons. But, don't we all have a few favorites that we keep coming back to? Here are my top 3 favorite blogs...
Dancing Branflakes: Tiffany is such an inspiration and one of those genuinely sweet people who you feel like you could spill your secrets to. Plus, she posts the most mouth-watering recipes. Oh, and she let me guest post for her today too.
exPress-o: I've been reading Diana's blog for a few years now, and I love how she always has something new and interesting to share. And I love how she weaves her life into each post too. Bright, Bold & Beautiful: Laura has a way of injecting life and vibrancy into every post. I come away from her blog feeling inspired, from her design posts to her Etsy finds.
Now it's your turn, friends: What are your favorite blogs? Which ones do you visit regularly? What do you like about them? What keep you going back? xoxo

  1. I love this post. For me it's so hard to actually choose 3 favorite ones, when I tent to browse close to 50 a day. I like blogs that have cool perspectives, keeps readers engaged, original content, honest appeal and some creativity or DIY projects. I think with all these things in mind, I can honestly say that yours, exPress-o, Design Mom, Design Sponge, La Buena Vida, Oh Joy, and Unstitched are among the ones I visit several time a day, but I equally follow others as well.

  2. I'd never heard of any of these blogs! I'm excited to explore!

  3. Great stuff!The visit was useful. Content was really very helpful.. thank you for the awesome write up I’m glad to have visited your post!

  4. I know! I remember the first blogs I've started reading were Cup of Jo and Oh! Joy, I can't remember what I read before blogs...magazines? books?

    I love Sweet Fine day and Elephantine...

  5. Cool! Thanks for this post, Melissa! I have a question for you that is kind of related to this post. Since you have your own blog (and have obviously become quite an expert blogger!), I think it would be awesome if you did a post about proper blogging etiquette. For example, I would like to start a small blog but I don't know the proper protocol for posting links to other people's blogs or big news websites or anything like that. For instance, if I posted a link to an article on your blog, how would I go about getting your permission/properly documenting my source?

    It would be so awesome if you could do a post on this :)



Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
