I’m one of those people who reads blogs and never comments. If you ever see me comment on a blog, it must be a serious matter going on someway somehow. I’m not sure why I stopped commenting on blogs. I know it’s common courtesy to comment if you like a blog, but I think I read so many blogs, I can’t make time to comment on all of them. I’m a lurker. You can’t even be mad at me though, because I know you (yes YOU, reader) are lurking on my blog right now. And what?
In order to get myself out of lurk mode, and give a few props to some blogs I am enjoying, I thought I would take some time to list the blogs I am currently in love with. I might do this once a month. It depends on how my month goes.
On with my fave blogs of the month!
- Accidental Beauty. I’m not a big beauty blog reader. I watch beauty vloggers on YouTube, and as a result, every makeup tip I have ever learned (after the year 2003) has come from the Internets. I get a few complements here and there, so I must be doing something right. Part of my frustration with beauty vloggers has been none of those broads are my color (or even close), so I never know what to buy when I get to the makeup counter. Anyway, I love Resha’s Accidental Beauty blog because she’s thorough, I love her results, and she provides a great mix of drug store and department store cosmetics & supplies. I also dig her site and web strategy, so it also satisfies the web nerd in me. I can’t hang if your site is too janky.
- A True Tale. I don’t usually like blogs about babies and parents (save dooce) but I am so in loooove with the baby blog of my Internets pal Clarence. The pics are cute, the tales are cute….and I mean, the baby’s name is TRUE. Coolest baby name ever. True.
- Ragamuffin Soul. Soo…I don’t really talk about this much in public (or online) but I am a fairly conservative Christian kinda girl. Both of my parents attended ministry school, I can’t remember a time in my life without being in church and I try to lead my life as Christ would. (That was so corny, btw). I don’t go to church because I like to dress up or out of habit; my faith is a very important part of my life, that I take pretty seriously. It’s always a struggle though, ha. Anyhoo, I have run across Carlos Whitaker’s blog a few times over the years, and decided to subscribe recently due to his son and the Single Ladies video that went viral last month. I am thankful for finding Carlos’ blog because…well it’s nice to read some contemporary Christians online. Maybe part of the reason I am so private about my Christian life is because I rarely feel like I have any Christians I can relate to besides people over 50. That, and most Christians work my nerves. But that’s a whole ‘nother talk show.
- Blogussion. I would be remiss if I didn’t talk shop. Blogussion is one of my favorite blogs to find tips about blogging, generating site traffic, writing online, or tricking out the Thesis WordPress theme my site runs on. It’s written by this kid who is like 12 years old and makes millions of dollars online. Okay, that might be a stretch, but still, it’s good stuff. Go take a lookey-look.
Alright. That’s all I have for this month. Go forth and surf the Internets.
