There are a handful of blogs that I subscribe to and read regularly but at least one day a week I will spend a good chunk of time reading blogs I’ve never seen before. There are, after all, so many blogs on WordPress to choose from, about so many things – it can be a little overwhelming. But if you like to read random strangers ramblings (and clearly you do, since you read my blog) it certainly can be enjoyable.
Over the last nine months I’ve come to love a few blogs in particular, for a variety of reasons. I write this post simply to point you in the direction of some writing I enjoy. In the midst of so many blogs we can all go unnoticed, and while that’s fine too, every now and then it’s nice to know someone is reading, liking, thinking about your words.
Maybe I’ll Run a Marathon ~ The first blog I ever read at WordPress was Jennifer’s. Jennifer is actually my friend in real life. She’s probably one of the top 3 coolest people I have ever known. I love her dearly and am grateful for her friendship. She is an awesome writer and I would encourage you to check her out.
The Single Cell ~ I love this woman too, but I don’t know her. Her writing style is clean, clear, funny and direct. I like the way she thinks and how she chooses to express it all. Right now I’m enjoying her recaps of the republican debates. She is politically minded without being boring or uninteresting. But that’s not all she’s about.
My Life as I Know It ~ Rocks is a great guy struggling with a few things, the biggest being his love for a woman he is not married to. He’s pretty honest and his pain is extremely palpable. I find myself hurting for him a lot of the time and wishing things could be different for him. I don’t worry about him though because he is extremely together and very strong (even though he doubts it at times).
Jcpathtomarathon ~ I don’t think this guy has been blogging for long, but I like the way he does it. He’s a runner, training and preparing to run a marathon. I believe his first, but I can’t swear to that. He writes about the training and the runs. If you’re a runner he’s extremely relatable and a good read. I like him a lot. 🙂
The Forgotten Wife ~ This lady is pretty awesome. When she started blogging her loser husband had just decided to divorce her for another woman – she has embraced her current situation, that she had no say in, and is becoming the woman she was meant to be. Despite the jerk. I love her writing.
Kiss the Boys & Make Them Cry ~ I have too much in common with this lovely lady not to like her. Her dating trials and tribulations echo my own so often it’s a little freaky. We were destined to be friends – who knew a place like WordPress would make it happen!
36 and Single ~ I just like this woman. She shares a lot, kind of like The Narcissist (see below), but in a different way.
Enjoyable Running Blogs:
Cusses While Running ~ Fun, inspiring, thoughtful.
Run To Munch ~ Enjoyable read with periodic interesting food creations.
It’s not sweat . . . it’s my fat cells crying! ~ Evie is a relatively new runner who writes from her heart about the journey she’s on. She makes me laugh and inspires me and all I want to do is encourage her to keep doing what she’s doing.
Three Months to Forty ~ Trials and tribulations of online dating. Great sense of humor.
The Narcissist’s Blog ~ Can you share too much information on a blog? After reading The Narcissist, I don’t think so.
43 & Single ~ I like this woman a lot. Smart, funny and having a time (and that doesn’t mean a good time) with online dating.
The Reluctant Monogamist ~ Another smart woman looking for love, there are a lot of us. I really like her writing style.
No Category Blog:
Tikk Tokk ~ Tikk writes about a lot of things, book reviews, music, whatever is on her mind. I like her style. She recently wrote about Harold Camping’s apology and I have to say it was pretty awesome. Probably because I felt the same way since Campings rapture BS freaked my 13-year-old out and kept him up at night for many nights!
EDIT: I edited this post from its original state after receiving Tikk’s comment and following her trail about Thomas Murray. The day has been enlightening, to say the least, and I am grateful for the blogging community I am a part of. Ladies (and men) beware. Once I can fully wrap my head around Thomas and our interaction of the last few months, I will have no choice but to write about it. Stay tuned.
