Bloggy Blogs

To My Beloved Bookworm Deweese,

I love your summer reading list! It inspires me. So does the Kindle. Dude, I recently found myself reading my kindle while walking underground in the vast tunnel that is the Union Square subway station. Now THAT is dangerous. I am currently reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and so far so good. The writing style is completely different from what I normally read. However, next week when we are on the beach (!) I will probably switch to Are you there Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea. Cause, c'mon, its vacation.

Truth be told, I mainly read BLOGS. I find that there are constantly so many new beautifully crafted blogs out there and I just can't get enough. I thought I'd share with you a (very) small percentage that have recently entered my daily routine. These are not really new, some are actually super established, but nonetheless..

The City Sage. From one of the creators of Rue...

Rock Star Diaries. Stories of a DC-based adorable young family...

Posing With Friends.
Our friend Lucy's little brother's overnight success of complete hilarity...

Anthropologie's new tumblr blog. BRAND NEW. But c'mon, I know I'm gonna love it!

And just for fun, here are Nick's looong time favorite blogs, both are random in content and lots of fun:

So, how do you find out about new blogs? For me, mostly my friends (or my constantly-in-the-know cousin, Melissa) email them to me to check out. Other times I find them through the blog lists that my favorite bloggers post on their blogs. (That sentence reminds me of "how much wood coulda wood chuck chuck"...) Also, I just (JUST) started using the site bloglovin' to track my blogs and have found a couple of blogs through it that I am, in fact, lovin'.

I have to be completely honest, though.

Sometimes my heart starts to beat really fast and I feel really overwhelmed that there are just TOO MANY blogs and that I'll never, ever see them all! And then I narrow it down and get real. The fact is, many of our friends have some pretty incredible blogs themselves! These guys are always in my rotation, and keep me perfectly content. I never miss a post:

Do you (or anyone else reading this) have any new blogs you'd like to share with me? I'd love to check them out!

love from the blogosphere,

PS: Can we begin an official countdown to Beach Trip 2011? It will definitely help me get through this week. T-minus 4 days until I see you, all the other amigos, and hopefully plenty of sunshine! More beach-related eye candy to come on Friday... but here's a teaser:

  1. I think the new anthro tumblr might be too deep for me. "Roam"?

  2. My name is Sara, and I have a blog addiction.

    Loving your list! I also start every morning with A Cup of Jo. Can not be missed!

    Fun story- met Anne Sage of City Sage and Rue a few weeks ago. She's every bit as amazing as she seems from her blog!

  3. D, it may be too deep... but c'mon, its Antrho. Let's see what the next "word" is and decide! Sara I share your addiction through and through. How wonderful to have met the City Sage! Rue is my fave. It's taken me a while to get into online mags, but Rue has helped! It is just really, really incredible.

  4. Thanks for the shout out ladies! Your blog starts my day each morning! I've actually done some purging of the Google reader lately as it was getting a little out of hand. But the Bitten Word (, a new discovery, has become one of my favorite cooking blogs!

  5. Oh this is awesome, Lucy! I've actually loved your food related posts so much that I've been meaning to ask you what you think the best food blog is out there. Bitten Word looks awesome, and is now officially added to my routine!
