More Blogs I’m Enjoying Lately

So we’ve talked about the My Favorite Clean Eating Food Blogs, and then a few months back I mentioned 5 Real Life Style Blogs You Should Be Reading. Because I just can’t help myself from sharing stuff that I like, I’m back to make More! Random! Recommendations!

Today, I have no good categories to share with you. No umbrella terms that encompass all the sites I want to tell you about. I’m just here with miscellaneous reading material that I’ve been enjoying lately. Who knows, maybe you’ll like them too? Or maybe you like them ALREADY, you smarty pants! I’ve never been really ahead of the curve on these things. :)

1. Everyday Elements

You guys I’m a crap-tastic photographer. And I’m okay with that…to a point. And for now. But it also something I find myself butting up against regularly — the inability to articulate — in my case, in a picture. You know what I’m saying, right. It’s frustrating to want to communicate something and have it come out nothing like you see it in your mind. Anyway, shortly after I picked up Photoshop Elements I stumbled across Everyday Elements on the recommendation of Hollywood Housewife (another super fun site you should totally be reading!) It’s been highly informative as I work my way through some of her tutorials etc. And with the impending death of Picnik (sob!) I think it’s time to take the plunge with PSE.

2. Creative Something

Billed as “Creative Ideas and Inspiration,” sort of makes it sound like it is Pinterest: The Blog Version. And there’s nothing wrong with that per se, except that it is not really accurate. Creative Something is a more analytical look at the spinning cogs of creativity: how to recongnize them, harness them, find more of it in your everyday life. There are a lot of great ideas and motivation on this site and I enjoy seeing new posts pop up in my reader.

3. Jeremy & Kathleen

Kathleen has a fun voice and likes to talk about all the things I like to read about: Style, food, decorating your house — you know, the good stuff! And then to top it all off she turned her successful freelance career and turned it into a legit creative agency with her sister. Reading stuff like that always makes me feel inspired to chart my own path, professionally speaking.

4. Shutterbean

So Tracy takes some pretty darn amazing photos of food. Oh, have we gathered yet that I am in a photography/food loving phase? Well, I’m really never NOT in a food loving phase, let’s just clarify that right quick! But anyway I came across her blog on Pinterest and had a fun time tooling around her awesome site. Then Amy (another arbiter of fun things) mentioned that she did a podcast with Joy the Baker that you can find over on HomeFries with a lot of other fun podcasts, if those are your bag. BUT EVEN MORE FUN than podcasts (to me at least!) are Tracy’s Home Fries Musings on Organization called High Straitenance. Good, good times for a crazy anti-hoarder like me!

So those are some of my random favorites. I think that’s plenty to keep you “Looking Busy” at work today, yes? :)


What are some of your favorite miscellaneous blogs? My feed reader is greedy and always on the prowl.

    No links to share, but I confess to reading a few different “mom blogs” these days, somewhat in preparation for the beginning of the “Jensens Try To Make A Baby And Somehow Manage To Keep It Alive” Show… 😉

      Good suggestions! I was right about to reach the end of the internet, and we just can’t have THAT happen, can we now? 😉

      I enjoy bloggers who talk about a variety of things too, actually, so I’m glad to know I’m not alone. I know THE THING TO DO is to have a niche, but the real deal is that I write here about my life, and my life does not have One Niche. Sorry, I’m not sorry :)





What I’m Pinning

  • Delicious tender chicken meatballs, smothered in sauce and cheese, and baked until bubbly hot. This new twist on an Italian classic is easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite! I prepare a lot of recipes. Many make it to the blog, some make it to the garbage, and some find a special …
  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
