Long before I was a blogger I was a blog reader. I spent my lunch break, my evenings, and any other bit of free time reading blogs the way that Nick spends that time reading about sports. The list of blogs I love the most has changed over the years and even the way that I read them has evolved. I used to visit each site individually as I felt so inclined, then I subscribed to them all in Google Reader, and these days I use Feedly. I frequently remove blogs that I don’t feel excited to read anymore and add new ones that have just caught my eye. I love that feeling I get when I find a new blog that is just really great. If you’re looking for some leisure reading then check out some of my favorites. Most are home decor blogs, but not all.
I’m in kind of a rut lately in that I don’t really feel like I have any peers in the blogging world. I wish there was some mechanism for finding blogs that get about the same amount of traffic as I do so we could compare notes and support one another. It’s hard to explain exactly what I mean, but I guess it’s like looking for friends at work or in parenting circles or whatever. It’s nice to have someone who “gets” it and that you can turn to for advice or support. Anyway, I’m always looking for new reads so if you have a favorite blog that you think I might like do share!
