ACTUAL BLOG LOVIN'
Today I'm actually in the middle of readathon-ing for Dewey's 24 hour readathon so I thought I'd pre-schedule a simple little post to celebrate some of the blogs I've been loving lately.
01. Girl Lost in the City
Emma Gannon is a digital journalist, social media maven, author and excellent blogger. Her blog is kind of a lifestyle blog; it's a wonderful mish-mash of culture, film, books, travel, fashion and everything else in between. The reason why I love her blog so much is because of her brilliantly written discussion posts. I just find them so relatable and on point and I don't think I ever skip over her posts when it comes up on my Bloglovin feed.
02. The Quiet People
Beth is a book blogger with a sharp wit and a beautiful writing style. Her blog features reviews, discussions and tags that come complete with lovely photographs. I also find her posts to be insightful and funny and always well worth a read. If you're not already following her then after visiting her blog, you will be.
I stumbled across Jemma's blog earlier this month and spent the entire night reading it; it's safe to say I fell head over heels. Dorkface is a lifestyle blog that's all about creativity; this is clearly reflected in the snazzy (yep snazzy is definitely still a thing) design, beautiful photography and Jemma's Etsy shop. Her writing style is chatty and unpretentious whilst also being smart and funny - a wonderful feat. Reading her posts feels like catching up with a friend over steaming mugs of tea and delicious cake, it feels like comfort and coming home. To me, Dorkface represents everything I love about lifestyle blogging, and Jemma will always have a fan in me.
04. Paper Fury
Cait is a book blogger who really stands out to me for the quality of her discussion posts. They are always on-point, well researched and intensely readable with an excellent use of hilarious gifs. As much as I enjoy book reviews, discussion posts about bookish issues and the book community are the ones that stay with me and have me pondering things long after I've closed the page. Cait writes wonderfully and her posts are always brilliantly funny. I also really admire her blog design and graphics - that girl has skillz.
05. Holly Pocket
Holly is a book and lifestyle blogger whose posts give me a little jolt of joy every time they pop up in my feed. She's been posting every day this month and I've been loving every single one! Her writing is clever and friendly and her varied content will always keep me coming back.
