Tuesday, May 22, 2012


This week's Top Ten from The Broke and the Bookish asks for the Top Ten Blogs/Sites You Read That AREN'T about Books. These are ten fun ones you should check out.

1) Awesome People Hanging Out Together: It’s exactly what it sounds like, old photos, new photos, movie stars, authors and politicians.

2) Family Balance Sheet: Recipe tips, cleaning tips, all the things I need to know because I’m helplessly awful at all things domestic. I’m getting better though!

3) Heart of Light: Recipes, DIY projects, great photos.

4) ThxThxThx: Great reminders to appreciate the little things in life.

5) First Milk: All things lovely and sweet.

6) English Muse: Beautiful photos and thoughts and the occasion photo of Colin Firth.

7) A Cup of Jo: I know, everyone reads this blog, but it was one of the first I ever found when I started reading blogs and we were planning our weddings at the exact some time.

8) Little Brown Pen: A little taste of Paris.

9) Stage Write: This is actually my other blog, I review theatre in the Midwest, but it is one of the blogs I spend the most time at that’s not related to books.

10) Old Love: Entertaining photos of people who used to date or be married.

I don't follow any of these and really hate to add any more to my favorites list, but since you recommend them--I probably will check them out. One of my favorites is Orangette. Molly Wizenberg does recipes and much more. Her book, A Homemade Life, is great as well.

**I can't believe I left Pinterest and Librarything off this list. I spend so much time on those sites!**

Diane - Old Love is an entertaining one.

annieb - Oh geez, today is bad for me because I'm looking at everyone else's lists and I want to add so many new blogs to my Google reader! I'll check out Orangette.

Tanya - I need all the domestic help I can get. That one is a great resource.

Red - I've seen some great photos on that one!

averydisorientedreader - I hope you find some you like.

Kat - I've actually been reviewing theatre on that blog for much longer than I've had this one. They cover very different subjects.

Lit Hitchhiker - Isn't that one fantastic!
