What If ...

... for some bizarre reason, you no longer could read whatever blogs you want and were told you could only read three.  What three would you read?

This is challenging, because I read a lot of family blogs, to keep up with my friends' lives and their growing children.  I don't want to have to choose between friends.  So to reduce the agony of having to choose from among those favorites, leave friend blogs out and pick your top three non-friend blogs that you read for encouragement, information, personal development, recipes, etc.  A blog you read for one of the later reasons may also be your friend, so it is okay to choose a friend's blog ... I just didn't want you to feel like you were in elementary school again having to rank your friends!

I'm curious what you read.  I find there are many blogs I might like to read, but I don't have the time.  And if articles on a blog are too long (speaking of text, not photos) I won't read them; I don't like reading on the computer screen very much.

I have to give this some thought too, so I'll post my top three tomorrow.  Post yours in the comments, and feel free to include reasons why you love them.  Maybe we can introduce each other to some cool blogs we didn't know about before!


  1. I don't think I could go without Diary of a Mom. A mom with a little girl with Autism and their struggles and victories but also how she has become an amazing advocate for all of us with kids on the spectrum. It's helped me to know that I'm not alone and that it's important that we all share our stories to offer a better understanding of what Autism looks like.

  2. I guess it isn't surprising, but the blogs I am least likely to miss are from other nature-loving, crafty, homeschooling mamas. I really like www.gsheller.com and www.soulemama.com. A favorite on a different subject (if it is classified as a blog?)is www.rabbitroom.com.

  3. Jodi, I have enjoyed some of the posts you've shared from the Diary of a Mom on Facebook. Good stuff.

    Heather, I am not surprised that you like crafty, nature-loving, homeschooling type blogs. :) I'll have to check those two out. Thanks!
