I love http://blog.kimberlywilson.com/ . Her blog is full of tranquilty, fashion, yoga and lots of pink and giggles.ReplyDelete
I think, sweet|salty is really sweet and salty. There is fun, it is inspiration, even some posts made me think and some were funny...and ah..it is also visally good looking...ReplyDelete
Quite a good blog... I liked it...!
After being laid off, keeping up my blog--a hyphenated life--keeps up my personal and professional esteem. It's so cheerful to have readers from 35 countries and 41 U.S. states. Anyone from Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, or Louisiana can give me a thrill by visiting http://sue.edison-swift.com.ReplyDelete
I love this blog/site as its always giving me inspiration. She also has guest bloggers and does podcasts. I particularly enjoy the Wednesday Wishcraft prompts to focus my creative thoughts. Her blog is light & deep at the same time.
I like fluffy bunnies for the super frank, yet never dull mommy talk. I adore 6512 for the garden and food, poetic language and life views. I must mention Conjuring my Muse because I think she is hysterically funny and tender hearted.ReplyDelete
I love Kelly's Korner blog. She is a young, new mom from Arkansas and her blog has such an authentic voice about real life. One of my favorite posts of hers was when she announced on her blog she was pregnant with her first child after struggling with infertility. Writing about her daily life keeps me coming back to see what's up in her world.ReplyDelete
I love the realness of her life. She has found a wonderful place to share her life and I think many people will find a soulmate in her.
Two juicy blogs I like:ReplyDelete
http://juliabutterflyhill.wordpress.com/ Julia's blog is juicy because she keeps it real and invites the reader into action. She doesn't allow the reader to keep her on the pedestal that fame made for her.
http://www.gazamom.com/ Laila's blog is juicy because she combines private and public lives in her writing on mothering and Palestine. That combination brings home the otherwise dense political issues, making them easier to understand in context.
I totally agree with creatingavisiblelife. Kimberly's blog has inspired and uplifted me over the last few years. And I have taken positive actions in my life because of the vision she shares with the world.ReplyDelete
But since that one is taken :) I think one of the 'juciest' blogs around is Danielle Laporte's http://whitehottruth.com/. She has kick-ass views on life, a powerful personality that shines through her words, she speaks with authenticity, authority, humour, passion and inspiration. It would have to be in the top 5 Juicy blogs I've come across.
And then my blog is a start towards becoming Juicy (it might even make it to the top of my top 5 one day...).
I love RJ from Oklahoma's http://barnontheweb.weebly.com/my-goats.html --Talk about authentic!ReplyDelete
RJ won the first ever Young Sheperd Award from Juniper Moon Fiber Farm with a video (another great blog- Fiberfarm.com/blog and pay-it-forward and CSA business model).
RJ's reward? A small flock of angora goats, which he traveled to VA to pick up. Inspirational in simplicity and values,
Plenty of cute lamb and goat pics, plus a streaming lambcam at fiberfarm.com, too.
I love Zen and the Art of Peacekeeping. It makes me want to be a better person when I read it.ReplyDelete
one of my favorite blogs is www.jenniferjangles.blogspot.com Jennifer and work in a lot of similar mediums and her work is always so happy, bright, fun and funky!ReplyDelete
another recent favorite blog that I just came across is www.dirtyfootprints-studio.com where there are lots of inspirational posts, awesome paintings, and motivational words :)
Definitely Jamie Ridler Studios.ReplyDelete
Her blog is uplifting, supportive, and creative.
It feels like cheating to even nominate Danielle LaPorte's blog (http://whitehottruth.com/) but her words are like a spear of motivation: direct, sharp, and meaningful.ReplyDelete
A big thanks to everyone who submitted their favorite juicy blogs. Using Tara's Random Number Generator I picked 2 winning commenters: Janet Foley Orosz of Navigate Lupus Fog, and Sandi Davis of Luscious Life. Both will receive a free spot in my upcoming Juicy Blogging e-course. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
