Spreading Blogger Love!

By  |  8 Comments

the past six months have been incredible as i’ve delved deeper in the blogging community! the sheer amount of blogs that exist on the internet is vast, impressive and overwhelming. i wanted to share a few of my blogging buddies with you because i think they are doing quality work, are inspiring women and have helped me build up the concept of ‘the new wifestyle!’

i’m linking up with all the joys and knock on wood to share some posts that especially spoke to me over the past few weeks for various reasons:


what happens when you go off the pill, amanda @ notes from a newlywed
i love amanda! she puts so much thought and energy into each of her posts and she’s grown to be one of my best bloggy friends. thanks for sharing so openly about your experience on going off the pill.

for those left behind, rachel @ random writings of rachel
rachel writes hilarious, witty and deep posts about being an ESL teacher in china. this one is about how it’s harder for the family and friends you leave behind with that loss rarely being acknowledged.

wordsmiths anonymous, kate @ the florkens
woohoo! i’ve signed up for some accountability when it comes to writing outside of my blog for resources around marriage! there is still time to sign up if you have a goal of writing a novel or play or other piece of writing.

i’m the great one, taylor @ the daily tay
this lady is just funny. i literally was laughing out loud when she found a story she wrote about a great person…and it was herself in elementary school. candid and hilarious.

the awesome thing about dogs, amanda @ knock on wood:
she hit the nail on the head with why dogs are so great! amanda has a gorgeous new dog in her life that i constantly stalk pictures of!

i hope you have a marvelous friday and i’m still deciding whether or not to let adam levine back into my life.

    Aww, seeing this definitely made me smile this morning! I’m going to have to check out Taylor’s post because that sounds like the sort of thing I would have written as a child (no problems with low self-esteem here)…
