Non-Bookish Website I Frequent
Uhh...this was surprisingly hard! I had no idea just how entwined my life is with books; I went to my little page of Most Visited sites, and it is seriously all bookish things: Goodreads, county library, public library, BN, Amazon, NetGalley...ridiculous!
But anyway. I managed to scramble up 10 sites that I do visit, though a lot of them are personal blogs - I've been a personal blogger myself for 6+ years, so that's how a lot of these came into my life.
1. Social Networks
Kind of cheating since a lot of this does involve my blog, but still.
2. A Cup of Jo
ADORE this blog. Joanna is so lovely, and she always has the best content. Fashion, design, photography, city guides, gift guides, baby things, books, her own personal thoughts...it's fabulous.
3. The Bloggess
If you want some serious laughs, head here. Jenny is side-grabbing, tear-inducing, pee-in-your-pants hilarious.
Home to Cyanide + Happiness webcomic. Fair warning, their content is offensive, graphic, rude, all-around general foul material. I LOVE IT ALL.
(I also meet most of the artists during Comic-Con every year, and they're awesome.)
5. JJB Message Board
Stemming from my old (but never gone) *NSYNC fanatic days, this started as an *NYSNC message board and has since evolved to an every day hangout. This is probably the website I've been going to the longest (~12 years?), and I feel like family with a lot of them.
I'm a nail lacquer freak. Seriously. I have ~115 different polishes, and this is one of the best nail blogger websites. Jen is awesome and informative, really nice and super responsive to any questions you have. Her swatches are amazing.
(I actually know Jen and her site through JJB!)
7. Oh Happy Day
Design, graphics, DIY...Jordan's site is FANTASTIC and lovely. Her aesthetic is to die for.
Beware that hunger AWAITS you if you go to Jessica's food blog. I think I found her through a delicious cupcake recipe, but I've been a big, big fan since. Her food photography is so much fun, she's got a delightful humor, and seriously...NOMS EVERYWHERE.
Lauren is probably one of my favourite bloggers. She's a stylist and new-mama, and I just think she's a doll. I found her through the Fill-in-the-Blank Friday meme that peppers most personal blogs, and she's fantastic.
10. Barefoot Foodie
I found Brit's site because she's often listed as similar to The Bloggess (if ever a selling point, it's that). She's hilarious and sarcastic and so real I love it. She's also an incredibly important blogger, because she's very up-front and real about being plus sized - but it's not her trying to make excuses or make awkward fat jokes that veil a deep insecurity. No, Brit is all about embracing it and learning to love who you are, no matter what -- and to this plus-sized girl, I find her inspiring. (You should watch her TED talk, it's about courageous beauty.)
(and while linking this, I've found out she has made the switch to her blog being called Brittany, Herself since her blog kept getting confused Foodie-searching people haha.)
