My Blogger Crush

Blogging, friendships

During my blogging sabbatical* I continued to pin interesting posts that caught my eye. One of these was In the Next 30 Days’ list of 31 blogging resources. I know at the time I liked the post but I hadn’t checked it out in awhile.

*(a really nice way of saying “When I Sucked at Blogging”)
Tonight, I opened it up and read through the list. It really is great, and I’d highly suggest at least pinning it for a later date. Most useful of all for my current situation is Kludgy Mom’s 600 Topic Idea Bank! Number 10 on that list is: who is your blogger crush, and why?

Obviously I cannot choose just one, so I’m going to have to go with a tie on this one.

#1 Erin

I’m sure it’s obvious that Erin is one of them. I met Erin at Influence in 2012 and it was super awesome. I knew she liked wine thanks to her blog so we made plans for a post-party drink at the bar. It was super fun and I met a couple really cool bloggers who have continued to be incredibly successful.

Living In Yellow

Erin is not only a blogging inspiration, but she’s a LIFE inspiration. Girlfriend’s not afraid to eat delicious food and drink delicious wine.

Also, she runs “Love, Yellow.” It’s a monthly fashion box. And I’m incredibly bummed out that I missed April’s Coffee shirt. I link to Living in Yellow with some frequency so I’m going to move on to my other first place blogging crush!

#1 Mandy

And the other winner is Mandy Rose. She and her husband both blog and he writes a lot about finance. I don’t follow a ton of bloggers on Facebook because I follow most of them on Twitter. But Mandy runs a GREAT facebook account. She really makes you feel like you’re a friend, hanging out for the day.
But I think my favorite thing is that she’s real. She doesn’t hide the messy, the tantrums, the rough days, the mom-fails… I’m not a mom but that doesn’t mean that even as a single, childless woman I don’t feel guilt over perfect homes. I unloaded my dishwasher for the first time in a week and a half tonight. Last week I had to run the same load of laundry three times because I kept forgetting to put it in the dryer.

I feel like Mandy would totally get that and wouldn’t be silently thinking, “This girl is a hot mess.”

Who is your blogging crush??
