While thinking about what I would write today for Thankful Thursday I really started thinking about how thankful I am for the blogs that I read! So today I’m putting a little spin on Thankful Thursday and making it a blog edition- where I tell you a little bit about the types of blogs I am thankful for and an example of each! =)
My absolute 100% favorite type of blog to read/view would be (dun, dun, dun)- Fashion Blogs!! Yes, I know. No shock there! But there are very different types of blogs based around fashion out there, and I would say I’m a little bit picky! I like the personal touch of the blogger to be very present and for it to be obvious that this is their style. I’m not saying I dislike a fashion blog where the blogger is more a character than they are themselves- but I’ve never found myself hooked on any blogs like that. I like to see a real person, in clothes, styles, make-up, accessories, etc. that real people can afford! I ran across this website yesterday and it really made me realize how much I value “real”. I think that girl is absolutely stunning and her style is my dream, don’t get me wrong! If I walked into her closet I’d probably pass out from excitement. But she writes in her about me that this is a character- and that really spoke to me about the difference between her blog and my absolute favorite!
As of right now and for the past few months- Elizabeth’s blog has been my absolute favorite blog when it comes to fashion! Her blog is a mix of everything that makes her who she is and I can just tell what a down-to-Earth kind of girl she is! I think I like her blog so much because she does a wonderful job of letting you look into the window of her life and view her style as it really and truly is. She takes her photos herself for the most part with a self timer and there’s just no added glitz and glam. I really admire what she’s done with her blog and I hope one day *maybe* someone will love my blog as much as I love hers!
My second favorite type of blog would have to be just plain old personal blogs! I’ve been blogging since I was 14 or so and I’ve followed a handful of people around the web for almost that long! Crazy!! Sometimes I have a terrible attention span, though- and it takes a special person to write a blog based around their every day life that truly keeps me interested and coming back for more. I have quite a few favorites (and if I leave you out here it’s because I’m only picking ONE or I’d be here all night writing about how awesome all of my friend’s blogs are!) – but I’d say this particular one has had me hooked for a while!
Danielle at Sometimes Sweet has a wonderful personal blog! She posts very inspiring blogs with a wide range of interesting topics. You can read about her every day life, her current pregnancy (aw!), find great recipes/nutrition advice, fitness tips, etc etc. I find her writing very easy to read and always interesting. Not to mention, she posts tons of cute pictures- which I happen to love in a blog! She also has a little segment called Tattoo Tuesday, and as a tattoo lover I always look forward to Tuesdays!
And lastly, I love photo-blogs! Whether they be on an actual blog or through Flickr. Rather than put down their thoughts through text and paragraphs, some people share what the feel through their photographs. I have a definite favorite when it comes to this type of “blogging” and I’m happy to share!
I am absolutely in love with the photography of Cari Ann Wayman. She is absolutely wonderful, beautiful, and so unique with her photography. She has a serious eye for great locations, and I love the abandoned places she finds! I have always aspired to show the kind of emotion through my own photographs that she shows through hers and I admire her a ton! I really think she’s going to go far in this field and I hope she continues to post on Flickr! =)
So there you have it! These are my three favorite types of blogs, and my three favorite examples! I’m thankful for these beautiful women and that they’re willing to share a piece of themselves with people like us on the internet! I hope you find them all as interesting as I do!
