Do you read other blogs? I placed it on my list of 50 things, because I realized to be a better blog writer, I need to read more blogs. I usually begin with the Freshly Pressed. For those of you reading this because you are a friend or family member, Freshly Pressed are the blogs the people at WordPress have deemed exceptional. They post a new set of Freshly Pressed blogs Monday-Friday. Because of that page, I am now a faithful reader of the following blogs:
I also found another place to “get my read in”, the Topics page. There, you are faced with a jumble of words.
Just click on one. Then you are taken to all the most recent posts that was tagged under that topic. I found that I prefer certain topics over others, Parenting over Children, Blogging over Blog and Running over Fitness. There isn’t much rhyme or reason, but those are some of my favorites. From that page I am a dedicated reader to the following blogs:
- Check My Pulse
- Listen to the sun rise
- 365 Trinkets
- Mae East
- My Blog
- Listful Thinking
- Will Run For Glitter
Reading other people’s blogs not only inspire me to get out and run, give me new ideas on activities I can do with my kids, or remind me that I need to take time for myself. Reading someone else’s blog, is like being invited into a stranger’s home. Not just their home, but into their world, into their inner sanctum. I feel like an eagerly anticipated guest. Time was taken to ensure my comfort. Effort was made to make sure I enjoyed my stay and when it’s all done, my host only wants an honest comment, if that.
That’s why I read blogs, what about you?
