Blogger ramblings: Help me discover new blogs!

So many of my favorite bloggers quit last year. I miss them like crazy. I have my small group that I still visit daily but I would like to discover a few new blogs to add to that list.

I’m looking for newer, smaller blogs (although older, larger blogs are fine too!). People with a fun style that’s unique to them. Books, music, personal or a mix of all those things is fine.

To get the ball rolling, I want to tell you all about a blog that I love -


3ddc021c8fa0f0000895213f7a0ec585Tales of Whimsy: books, mamahood & random loveliness

This is one of my favorite blogs to visit. Tales of Whimsy is a simple, inspirational blog that just forces me to relax and appreciate life whether she’s posting a book review, a crafty idea, or a beautiful picture.

She’s also reminds me to blog about what I love and simple is sometimes the best when it comes to posting.

So tell me – who are the blogs/bloggers that I should check out? Feel free to include links or Twitter handles so I can check it out.

Thanks!

  1. I love finding new blogs, too! I found Keertana's blog, Ivy Book Bindings, this year (http://ivybookbindings.blogspot.com/) and I really love it. Also, I'll always love Jenny's blog, Supernatural Snark (http://supernaturalsnark.blogspot.com/) :)

  2. Like you, I have a small group that I visit with daily -- I'd be sad to lose them! -- but I'm always on the lookout for new blogs to read. I just started reading the Book Swoon, a relatively new blog with a clean, simple design and style.

    1. I think most blogs are simplifying or at least becoming more about their own personality instead of cookie cutter. I'm glad to see it - I just wish we hadn't lost so many good bloggers.

  3. Awwwww OMG I am so excited that you featured me. *hug* I'm so honored. Thank you! *hug*

    Ok so here are my suggestions. Charlotte use to be a book blogger back in the day but these days at her new blog she posts art, books, recipes, and other lovely things at http://www.midnightcaramel.com/. She's honestly sweet and fabulous.

    Another one of the top of my head is Shannon at http://www.happinessisblog.com/. She is so chic, funny, and always posts pretty and creative things.

    Happy hunting! :) And thanks again.

    1. When you read so many blogs it's hard to find new ones that stand out.

  6. Here are some book blogs that I love because they are personal friends (bias here) and/or just generally amazing. My friend Monica just started up at The Novelista (http://monicathenovelista.blogspot.com) and my friend Emma is freaking intelligent as all-get out at Booking Through 365 (http://bookingthrough365.blogspot.com). I also think you would like The Bloggess (www.thebloggess.com) because she is the most inspiring person ever.

      I do read The Blogess. I love how honestly she speaks about depression and other issues.

  7. I hear ya! I hate it when we lose good blogs. I have a core set of blogs that I visit daily and most started out with me a couple of years ago. I adore Maja@The Nocturnal Library she and I tend to agree a lot. I enjoy Christ@Love of Books because she and I have demented senses of humor. Ali@My Guilty Obsession is a sweetheart and she reviews a lot of indie. Jenny@ Supernatural Snark is Fab! I could go on and on but these are a few of my favs.

  8. Hm.. I don't have one that hasn't been mentioned here or that I'm pretty sure you don't already know. Most of my faves are on my sidebar but I don't know if any are very new. Hm... must put on thinking cap that doesn't seem to fit today. :D

    1. I think I've already scanned your sidebar before lol That's how I find a lot of new blogs - along with links in the comments.

  9. So sad when we see bloggers leave the sphere. Check out Ali@My Guilty Obsession, Lily @ Lily Ponds Reads, Kim @ Book Swoon

  10. I tend to put the blogs I like to visit in my sidebar, so I'd suggest looking there if you're curious! It's mostly book blogs, but I have few other ones too, like Why Girls are Weird. :)

  11. Great topic, Karen! I' going to peruse all the links in comments. I'm not following the blogosphere as intensely now so I was unaware of many blogs quitting :( To my shame I can't even suggest any new blogs, because I haven't gone looking.

  12. If you like this blog, I'm sure I will like it too. Going to go check it out.

  13. Juju's blog is very cute. I think we run in pretty much the same circles, but I always enjoy visiting Love is Not a Triangle, Flyleaf Review, YA Romantics, The Reader's Den (they do adult titles and romance as well), Starry-Eyed Revue, Ivy Book Bindings....and too many more to count. :)

  14. Looking forward to checking out all of the blogs mentioned, as I love finding fun new blogs. I recently rediscovered Jaime over at http://www.jaimelovesstuff.com, who writes reviews and tidbits from her life. I really love how her personality shines through!
