60 Blogs You Should Be Reading

Hi Guys!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday. Just wanted to pop in to spread a little blog love. If you haven’t noticed, i LOVE introducing you guys to my favorite blogs. I read A LOT of blogs. I think I have over 200 in my google reader. It’s borderline ridiculous. Like I’ve said a million times, I’m not sure what I did with my free time before I read blogs :)

But guess what? I love them all. However, today I have a little treat for you! Today I thought I’d share with you 60 blogs in my reader that I think you should be reading too.

Before we start, keep in mind that every blog on this list could fit into at least 3 different categories…it was hard to put them in just one! Ok ready? Here we go! Just click the images to go straight to the blogs!
