Cheri started blogging at about the same time as I did and I have followed her from the beginning. I feel like I knew her from way back when. Cheri is the real deal. She will respond to your comments and is the sweetest thing. Cheri is one of the most creative resourceful bloggers out there and should definitely be one that you follow. I wish that I was half as creative as Cheri is.
Katy is a gem. She's a mom of five girls and one sweet little newborn son.
Katy is an amazing seamstress. We actually chatted by e-mail last year for quite some time about her sewing and pattern making. She is such a great talent and pays such close attention to detail. Katy also has some amazing photography on her blog. She's got some adorable subjects to photograph and it provides such amazing eye candy. I wish that I was half as good of a seamstress as Katy, and I wish I had just a little bit of her talent in photography.
Allison is hilarious. I find that when you blog about crafts and home decorating it's hard to be funny, but Allison seems to maintain her personality (and humor) throughout her blog. Allison is one of those bloggers that is worth following on pinterest or facebook. She's got some of the funniest pins out there.
Shelly is another one of those bloggers who is just plain funny. You can feel her personality come through in her posts and she's been very honest the past few months about her weight struggles and how she's losing it. Such an inspiration. I love her decorating style and want to move in with her and her cute little girls. I don't think she would notice. But if she did, she would probably hand me a hammer and a nail gun and we would have our best time.
All four of these bloggers have a HUGE following. They have sponsors, lots of kids, tons of new projects, but yet they are still able to remember why they blog and are loyal to their followers.
There are several big bloggers out there who don't respond to comments, don't follow up, and don't seem to care about their readers. I can see that their motivation is only growing their blog and making money. It's a sad truth to blogging these days.
I think the most genuine bloggers are the ones that are able to take the time to respond to their readers.
Blogging is a learning process for me. Something that doesn't come easy.
But I am thankful for the people who believe in me enough to read along
to comment, and to share with me in this journey.
Please vote for me to be one of the top 25 creative mom blogs out there.
