Fall in love with blogs I follow!

Every time you post something online, you have a choice. You can either make it something that adds to the happiness levels in the world—or you can make it something that takes away.

Not too long ago, I was avidly using the Bloglovin app to save all the wonderful/helpful/useful online content I’d found either by recommendation, by mistake or off the back of other stuff I was Googling.

I recently discovered Bloglovin in its original form is no longer with us so tried various others. I preferred Bloglovin for its ease of use and original features and trying to import the sheer amount I was following into a new reader wasn’t easy and way more laborious than necessary!

That, and the fact that many blogs had ceased to exist. I’m actually still going through the list to see if they still exist and are WordPress ones, that I can follow here and enjoy through the Reader.

Anyway, the next bit of this post is going to be the bit that will be edited often, as I find those blogs that I believe should be storming ahead with thousands of followers. Of course, if you have any recommendations, please do link them in the comments below and share the blogloving!

The following list is not an in-depth review of the mentioned blogs, nor is CSHQ in anyway affiliated with them.

I love all these blogs for various reasons so go give them a follow and tell them I sent you!

Blogs I’m loving right now:

The Lighthouse

A Cup of Jo

Boys Don’t Cry

The first step in blogging is not writing them but reading them.

Open Letter: Dear Fellow Blogger…

Gratitude is a duty which ought to be paid, but which none have a right to expect.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I write to you now as I want to acknowledge your work that I stumbled across.

You blog about topics that matter (to me)

You write in a way that resonates (with me)

You advise in a way that’s easy to follow (for me)

You inspire my gratitude

Silent gratitude isn’t very much use to anyone.

Gertrude Stein

You fuel my creativity

You motivate my productivity

No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.

Alfred North Whitehead

Six things you’ve done for a complete stranger (me)

Regardless of how you came to be here, doing what you do, please accept this letter as a token of praise, appreciation and gratitude.

Accept this letter as the genuine compliment it is, because you; yes YOU, rock🤘🏼

Who would you send this to?

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
