We all have our favorite blogs and journals that we visit every week. And there are some we consistently visit every day. Over the past few weeks, in addition to my top faves, I've found myself visiting a different slew of journals on a regular basis. Though their journals are not new to AOL-J, some are new to me. Others are renewed with me. And I don't know how I ever lost track to begin with. [gotta talk to my doctor about that].
The following are just a few of my new obsessions. I strongly recommend you add these to the top of your daily reads! You're missing out otherwise.
I can't remember how I found her [Andrea perhaps?] but I am in awe of
her creativity. She's a writer and an artist. She creates
these cute comics of herself and the people in her life, to go along
with her wonderfully witty stories. Like an adult's children's
book. She's a cross between the comic strip Kathy [but way better] and the TV
character Maude [but way cuter]. Fun, dry, witty, likable, easy to read [for
people like me]. I can't get enough of her.
The Peach Pages
By now everyone must know Peachy. She's a star in her own right. And she was a recent Editor's pick [#1 baby].
But still, I feel compelled to praise her here. She's a mom. A
wife. A mentor. A superhero. A child advocate. A speaker of
truth. And she's some kind of funny. She takes no prisoners when it
comes to scorpions. She'll turn on her southern charm in a jam.
And according to an Arizona Little League crowd, she looks hot in
a pair of low cut jeans. The Peach Pages always get me laughing,
crying, cheering and wanting more. She's an excellent
storyteller. And just a wonderful person.
Single Woman's Guide to the Universe
I "discovered" Nutty-Nikki way back when the Editor's Picks were daily
andshe made the top 5 - that was the first time. Somehow I
drifted from her Journal. She resurfaced in my AOL-J life in the
last few weeks and I couldn't be happier. Last week she made the Weekly
Top 5. [that's twice!] Anything we need to know about dating
in any city; anything men want to know about how not to woo a
woman in any town; This is the place to be! There's a sweetness
and vulnerability to her writing. And her humor is right on the
money. There's also something intriguing about a person who has
never revealed her real name or what part of the country she lives in
[if in fact, she lives in this country at all]. Yet she's able to write
about real life stories. Inspiring!
The list doesn't stop here... we're just beginning! Now go, praise these Goddesses!
