31-Day Blog Challenge: Favorite Blogs

Day 25/31

Today’s prompt is to write about a “minimum of 5 favorite blogs.”  I think I’m going to hold off on that post for a while as I continue to immerse myself in and embrace the blogging community.  As selfish as it may sound, it’s true that I have taken this month and this challenge to focus almost solely on my blog, with only the occasional visit to other blogs.  Once the flurry of this blog challenge is over, I look forward to perusing my Reader and catching up on all of my favorite bloggers – I haven’t forgotten about you!  This has been such an incredible community to be a part of, and I look forward to becoming a more active user in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

All of that being said, I do feel the urge to give a shout-out to my friend Laura (who I frequently reference in this blog!), who encouraged me to pick up again on my blogging and to really give it a go this time around.  It is in part because of her own inspiring blog, Where the Gold Bees Dream (and her new blog, Girl Birder), as well as her encouragement for me to keep my creative fire going, that I am blogging today.  Thank you for being my creative and life mentor, Laura!!  Friends and readers, please check out her blogs – even though she doesn’t post as frequently as she used to (nudge, nudge!), I promise you will be inspired to create more and live a better life.
