    Wow! I have been trying to get a blog started for over a year, and there is a “looming deadline” that says it MUST be in a start-up phase this weekend…Possibilites for a name have been spinning and spinning in my head. So this post is absolutely awesome in just being able to see all the interesting names at once. I know that was not your intent – but sometimes things have fringe benefits we don’t even think about! Thank you for sharing all of this….not to mention all the great reading that will come from it too!
    Happy reading.

    Yay! I haven’t seen a lot of these before. I’m excited to poke around and start reading a few of them! Thanks :)

    I was just thinking in the shower the other day I needed new reading material. So, I thank you. My husband won’t, but I do!

  5. Skye @ Neathering Our Fest August 19, 2011 at 5:46 am #

    Wow! :) What an awesome list! And I was worried I wouldn’t have anything to do today… Thanks Emily!

    xo,

    you better believe I will be referencing this list again and again – quite the lovely collection.

  10. Melaine Thompson August 19, 2011 at 7:13 am #

    this is going to be very very dangerous! xoxo

  11. Lizabeth August 19, 2011 at 7:58 am #

    I love that you did this. It could be crazy addictive though.

  12. Jessica August 19, 2011 at 8:19 am #

    This is dangerous! My blog list is already long and you’ve just listed a bunch that I’ve never read! But seriously, thanks for all of the lovely guidance you give :)

  13. Gloria August 19, 2011 at 8:33 am #

    ha, Is there a limit to how many blogs one can have in their reader? So glad you did this!

  14. Brandy Traylor August 19, 2011 at 8:58 am #

    Noooooo!!! Between the Internet brilliance this list and Pinterest provide, there isn’t enough room in my brain or time to see it all!!!!

    Thanks (I think :) for the list.

    Happy Weekend!
    Brandy

  15. Amy J. August 19, 2011 at 9:29 am #

  16. Hollie WYnne August 19, 2011 at 9:33 am #

    Thank you!!! I’ll try and get something done at work today, despite all the lovelies you’ve just posted! :)

  17. Rachel August 19, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    This post needs to come with a warning label :-) Thanks, looking forward to losing a few hours.

  20. Cathy August 19, 2011 at 10:44 am #

    oh mY word… i need more hours in the day!
    Thank you for sharing, can’t wait to be inspired.

  21. Emily August 19, 2011 at 11:06 am #

    Thank you for posting! I was happy to see I already follow so many of these lovely blogs but there is a hefty handful that I will have to check out….is 300 blogs in a google reader too much?! AHH!

  22. Alima August 19, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    Great list! Many are my favs too! Love Jami from Hello from the Natos! Haven’t read a post of hers yet that didn’t make me laugh at loud. ;)
    And Paige (simple thoughts) and Darby (fly through my window) are also daily reads for me.
    I know I will be tempted to check out some of these that I don’t know, but really I should refrain. I already have such a long list that I never get to read all of them on a regular basis!
