What I’m Reading

iloveI’ve been blogging since 2007, and I’ve been reading blogs for even longer.  Over the past few years, I’ve lost the hours where I could leisurely click from page to page, catching up, peeking into other people’s lives.  Now my reading usually happens during a nursing session, and more often than not, I end up killing that time with games of Two Dots, or taking the Buzzfeed quizzes that clutter my feed.  I’m not reading nearly as many blogs as I did in the past, and I kind of miss it!

I’m starting to get back to reading, and I thought I would share some of my favorite bloggers (old and new), and some of the posts that made me fall in love.  I’ve also started listening to podcasts- pretty much anything MPR puts out or that is history related.  Why waste those precious hours spent washing dishes when I could be learning something, right?

 

Brittany, Herself
This was the first post that hooked me.
This inspired me to buy boots.
This inspired me to, well…

The Bloggess
The post that still makes me laugh just thinking about it.
A Diary of a Mom
The post that made me think about how I talk about the boys and autism.

Serious Eats
The post that became a staple of our meal plan.

The Candy Perfume Boy
As fragrance reviewers go, he’s at the top.

Podcasts:
The History Chicks
Grammar Girl
Backstory
Russian Rulers History Podcast (I totally nerd out to this one. No apologies.)
Librivox Not a podcast, but free domain audio books- pretty much any classic you can think of.
