Linking up with This Ain't the Lyceum for 7 Quick Takes
I've been meaning to do a few technical blog stuff for a while. I'm approaching 150 posts and decided it was high time that I got around to making pages (and I DID! Way to go goals!) one of which was to be about blogs and bloggers that inspire me.
Well I happened to come up with a list of 7 so I decided to make it into a 7 Quick Takes first and spread some blog love around!
FYI, these are in no particular order.
While not very active as of late (for good reasons!) this was the blog that convinced me people like me might be out there. And on the internet!
Thanks for being you Kendra.
A recent blog find for me and where I go if I want to feel inspired to better SAHM-it, revel in the beauty of how someone else does preschool homeschool, or just gaze at a gorgeous insta-feed.
Host of the latest link up to show what we wear to church (My Sunday Best), I love Rosie's blog for feeling like chatting with the cool neighbor down the road.
I dig how she views parenting and I like to live vicariously on her growing homestead. I dream of having a garden and chickens!
My favorite Canadian!
I learned about Christy's blog from the podcast she does with Haley at Carrots for Michaelmas - Fountains of Carrots. See what they did there?
She has convinced me that, while winters are hard, Canadian summers are gorgeous and well worth the winter. Maybe. I love that she writes about things like her love of cigars and G.K. Chesterton. Like a lot of G.K. Chesterton - you have 39 posts on Chesterton, Christy!
My crunchy living Midwest inspiration! When I learned that moving to the Twin Cities for my husband's work was a possibility (more on that later!) I messaged Nell pretty much instantly with ALL THE QUESTIONS! Thanks for calming my nerves and convincing me that I don't have to lose everything I love about living in the Bay Area by moving to the midwest.
I love her take on going to mass even though it can be a struggle with littles, talking nicely to your husband about parenting when you have littles, and pretty much everything in her super cute Etsy shop.
Oh yeah, she lives in an awesome turn-of-the-century house and #wholeparentinghouse is amazing.
No one can make me cry more than Laura. I followed along during the heart-wrenching loss of her twin daughters, and her last post on miscarriage had me in tears.
She writes so beautifully, and powerfully, about hard and real trials of mothering.
She has a beautiful series of prayers for pregnancy and prayers for parenting that get at the heart of what I need to say when I can't find the words.
Bonnie has been blogging for a long time, and has so many great posts!
Catholic stuff they might not teach you in RCIA, her Sheenazing Blogging Awards (which is a great way to find awesome blogs you've never heard of... yet), and her son's (alleged) miracle through the intercession of Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
Her Pinterest Board, Bloggity Blog Blog, is where I go for blog inspiration and when I'm trying to learn all the behind the scenes technical blog stuff I never knew was a thing until starting my own blog. So much respect for all of y'all with pretty and functional blogs!
Who are your favorite inspirational bloggers? Note: these aren't all of mine, they're just the first 7 that came to mind. Don't be upset if you're not on here...yet!
