Blogging surprises me all of the time. I have been blogging for approximately a year and a half now, and I am always learning new (and mostly delightful) things.
By far, the most interesting thing I have discovered is the way blogging helps me connect with new friends all over the U.S. and in other countries. My life is better because of it.
So, I want to write a brief blog post about some of the wonderful bloggers I have met over the last year and half, and I hope you will go and check out their blogs because they are encouraging and inspiring.
I should note that I am a very slow blogger. It takes me a long time to write posts, to read other people’s posts, and to discover new blogs. There are a lot of bloggers who are much better than I am at this, and it is something I am working on because these relationships are really meaningful to me.
So, I am really excited about the new blogs and bloggers I will meet this year and with whom I will be able to develop friendships. I hope to write more posts like this in the future.
Here is a list of bloggers that inspire me. This list represents people I have been following for a long time or with whom I have developed a relationship over the year or so.
Growing Self: This blog chronicles the life of Roda and her family on her beautiful farm. If you love pictures of beautiful scenery, adorable farm critters, and beautiful meditations on important life lessons, this blog is for you.
Rhapsody Boheme: I really appreciate Rhapsody Boheme’s blog because she is so honest about her spiritual journey, her daily struggles, and the joy she finds in little things. She regularly posts beautiful pictures from her travels around the world or just a special moment from her life.
Ali, The Mindful Gardener: If you at all like to garden; or would like to learn to garden; or you just love beautiful pictures of gardens in England, please check out Ali’s blog. Ali not only includes gorgeous pictures of her garden, she also gives practical and detailed information about the flora in her life.
M.B. Henry: I have always loved history, and so I was excited when I found M.B. Henry’s blog. Her site is dedicated to exploring interesting historical sites and events, and her post are filled with rich details that give you interesting behind-the-scenes glances of well-known places and events
Infinite Living: Infinite Living is a yoga instructor and a beautiful spirit, and her blog posts are always filled with gentleness, love, and light. You will enjoy reading her blog.
Mlewisredford is a poet, and his poems are the kind of poems that have such careful and vivid detail that you feel them in your stomach and heart. I really enjoy reading his work.
Between Two Untruths: This is my friend Joseph Trullinger’s blog. Joseph is a philosopher and professor (and my longtime friend), and his posts are always exquisitely written and filled with thought-provoking insights into various philosophical texts he is reading and teaching.
Thank you so much to these inspiring bloggers and the way you have impacted my life. I am looking forward to meeting new bloggers in the upcoming year!
