One of the most satisfying things about being a blogger is that I have met so many amazingly talented and lovely fellow bloggers, most of whom are Moms. Before I started this blog, I was tangentially aware that the blogosphere existed, but that awareness typically ended at a facebook share or Pinterest search. I am here to tell you that the blogging community is phenomenal, but there are so many bloggers out there. How do you find quality blogs to follow? Well, on this, my 1 year blogging anniversary, I wanted to act as your personal guide to the blogosphere and share the blogs that resonated most with me this year. Check these 50+ awesome blogs to follow and I hope you love the blogs and the bloggers behind them as much as I have!
Note: Many of the blogs on this list don’t fit neatly into one single category. However, I tried to fit them in the best category. They are all pretty awesome!
