If you're going to be a modern girl, you must get in on the blog scene. What exactly is a blog? Short for weblog, it's an electronic version of a journal. The subject matter is up to the blogger, so as you can imagine, there are tons of blogs out there about tons of different subjects.
Part of what makes blogging so appealing to me is the fact that one can tie to so many other blogs. It's sort of part of the blogging world, actually, and it goes along with the territory. At its core essence, it's what social networking is all about.
I was recently encouraged to share some blog love, but instead of focusing on the always brilliant "usuals" like design*sponge or decor8, I thought I'd highlight a few of my recent favs:
The Pioneer Woman: Move over, Martha. Meet The Pioneer Woman. A true pioneer woman, indeed, Ree Drummond does all sorts of incredible things. She lives on a working cattle ranch with her husband and 4 kids where she cooks, photographs, homeschools, blogs... and those are just a few of her daily chores. Not only does she do ALL that, she does it with beauty and perfection. This woman is my new hero (and her sweet rolls are to die for as was attested to in my Mother's Day Brunch post).
Feather Your Nest: FYN is operated by two women who know style. Miss Bleecker lives in Forth Worth and Miss Byrd lives in Savannah. Both have backgrounds in event planning (among other things), but their experience goes far beyond getting the logistics together. They are experts in the things that can really make or break a special occasion: flowers, linens, stationary/invitations, and photography. (As a side note, they also have a blossoming retail presence in Fort Worth called Byrd + Bleecker.)
Style Rookie: Meet Tavi. A lover of Bob Dylan and C.S. Lewis. A fan of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "A Night at the Roxbury." A devotee of Comme des Garcons and Alexander McQueen. A stylish and intelligent Londoner, indeed.
It's rude to speak about someone's age, but in this case, you'll have to excuse me. You see, Tavi is 13! Yes, she's 13 and she's the most sensational 13-year old I've ever come across.
Darling, quirky and eccentric, she has a respectable style of her own that is well-documented on her blog with daily pictures of what she's wearing, what she's doing, what she's listening to, who she's following, etc. Some might say that Tavi is wise beyond her years, but one of the most appealing aspects of her life is that one can still see the child within. She's still attractively innocent (she prefers chocolate pudding over vanilla).
Perhaps you'd like to share some of your favorite blogs, too?
