I have SO MANY favourite blogs. And as I was just saying to someone this morning, my tastes change as my life does, so what I loved a few years ago might not be what I love today. But there are a few that I always, always come back to for whatever reason.
Oh and I’m ruling out Fat Mum Slim because I talk about her enough on here, haha.
I can’t remember when I first read Kate’s blog, but I do know I was sucked in by the beautiful photography, the honest writing, the organic farm, the wood stove. Kate’s is one of the only blogs I have sent straight to my email so I never miss it. I genuinely enjoy seeing an email drop in with a new post. Her children are adorable, her farmer hunky, and her stories compelling. She is utterly divine and I hope she never stops writing as long as I live.
The Beetle Shack
I started reading Em’s blog more than a year ago now, and I was hooked from the start. Her blog looked beautiful, her stories about motherhood, art, and living honestly were so refreshing, so relatable, and so inspiring. She doesn’t sugar-coat anything, and I totally love that about her. I learn so much from her and her blog, and it helps that every single person in her family is easy on the eye. I’d like to bake her a cake and make her a cup of tea and fold her washing while she talks to me about creating a creative home. No scratch that, she can make me a woodfired pizza in her backyard oven.
Bitches Gotta Eat
I’m probably considered a recent convert to Samantha’s blog, but holy shit when I fell, I fell hard. I found her from a tweet from Schmutzie, whom I found through Edenland. I did that weird scream-choke-laugh straight up reading her blog, and I may have even slapped my thigh. She is the ultimate in hilarious, and I’m forever grateful her writing is a part of my life. Oh and her facebook page – she posts the most amazing pictures, stories, and creepy Craigslist ads. I stalk her pretty mightily on Instagram, and pre-ordered her book on Amazon a few months ago. Her tales of dating and living in Chicago (with amusing anecdotes of her daily struggle with Crohn’s Disease) are incredibly entertaining, and she is fearless and bold with her writing. I literally fist-pump when her posts land in my inbox. And I never fist-pump anything. She would be stoked with all this fisting and pumping.
Is probably my utmost favourite Australian blog. For real. She is SO funny, and so heartfelt and a megafuckinggood writer. Nobody can make me laugh and cry in the same paragraph like she does. Or know how to make my own Mirror of Erised, or a Lego cake. She writes about everything that takes her fancy, including hilarious and gut-wrenching stories of her autistic 15-year-old son. She is so much more to me than just a blogger friend, she is a real friend and is absolutely not revered enough. She should be made queen of the world and given diamonds and riches and jugs of margaritas. She loves hot salty fries, shoes, and giving me shit. And she is my favourite.
