Blogging has changed so much over the years, and it makes me a little sad. It's certainly not as en vogue as it once was. I miss the glory days! I miss the casual, candid way in which people shared their lives. So much of this has moved to Instagram, I think.
But, I've made my peace, and I still enjoy a handful of blogs. I read them daily, and I always get excited when I find a new one.
Bloglovin' is my favorite way to round them up all up in one spot. I usually start my day off reading blogs on my iPad, coffee (of course), and a nursing baby in my lap.
Here's my favorites...
A Cup of Jo
fashion, motherhood, travel...this blog is legit. Based out of NYC,
Joanna Goddard has her finger on the pulse of the modern woman. My
favorite series is Beauty Uniforms.
you are on a quest to find your personal style, then Unfancy is your
go-to guide. Caroline blogs her journey from dealing with her unhealthy shopping habits to
creating capsule wardrobes to minimalist fashion and finding her
distinct style. This is totally one of my favorites! And it's the inspiration behind my own capsule wardrobes.
Modern Mrs. Darcy
Anne Bogel blogs all about books. She also has a fantastic podcast What Should I Read Next. I have learned so much about my own reading life
and preferences from reading her blog.
Dinner a Love Story
Jenny shares recipes, tips on family dinner and entertaining, and she is the author of one of my favorite cookbooks. Also, she just announced her next book and I can't wait!
A Mother Far From Home
is a fabulous parenting blog. The tag line is parenting without the
chaos. This blogger, Rachel Norman, has done her homework! She has a way
of putting words to parenting problems and solutions that will empower
you as a parent and make you feel more in control! One of my favorite
posts...5 Times It's Okay For Your Child To Go Hungry.
This blog is written by 4 European women who put a beautiful spin on motherhood. They share product recommendations, but also crafts, recipes, and parenting tips.
Blair writes about home design meeting the practical parts of family
life and motherhood. This is a colorful blog with so much design
inspiration as well as great tips on parenting and mom life in general.
Also, I'm a huge fan of the book Design Mom.
Thrift at Home
Margo's blog is so inspiring as she shares how she thrifts at home! She shares recipes, kitchen tips, sewing, and much more. This post is one of my favorites and I think about it all the time.
Art of Simple
Tsh's well know blog offers everything from practical life tips, great recommendations for kids' toys and books, inspiration about hospitality and travel as well much food for thought on education and choosing schools. Also, there's a podcast.
Memories on Cloverlane
Sarah is a mom of 6 kids. She shares so much wisdom and perspective about mothering and running a home as well as tons of great parenting tips. Her 40 bags in 40 days posts are super inspiring!
Best Laid Plans
Nell is one of my best life friends and my college roommate. She writes about her life with her three adorable triplets. Yes, triplets!
This is my sister-in-law's blog. She writes about deep and fascinating things....God, people, spirituality. She is a brilliant writer, and she is only 21 years old! She truly amazes me.

So PLEASE share...what are your favorite blogs these days? Did you once upon a time have a blog? Do you wish you still blogged? If so, why did you stop? Do you think blogs are dead?
Also, all the blogs I shared have updated at least once in the last month.
