Like many other bloggers, I love reading blogs. I enjoy seeing what others are doing in their homes, how they express themselves creatively, and more. I also find a lot of inspiration on various blogs. I read all sorts. Some devoted to decor, some to cooking, some to savings, some to just plain living. Now and then I'll tire of a blog and drop it off my list. A few are always favorites. At the beginning of this year, I cleared my blogs from my list of favorites and started all over again. I kept only a five or six on my roll who had become friends.
Why wipe out a list of blogs? Because I get locked into the same thought processes and the same ideas repeated over and over. I wanted a new, fresh, more creative approach to life this year and I needed to see where new blogs would take me. I've had fun. My inspiration has soared, I've enjoyed myself tremendously.
I thought I'd share some of my current favorites with you and I want to start the list with a new friend, one who has a brand new blog. V asked me to be her mentor as she begins her foray into the world of homemaking. I was honored and when I found her announcement of her blog this morning I was thrilled to pieces. Please stop by and visit her blog and welcome her into the blogging and home making world won't you?
