There are all kinds of blog awards out there from the tiny community blog awards to the big ones by major magazines, I’m sure you’ve seen them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking them, I think they serve a purpose and because of some of those awards, I’ve found some great blogs that I otherwise may not have. On the other hand, often those awards go to the same people over and over and it gets a little annoying.
I’ve been nominated for a few myself and I really do appreciate it, I do. However, I don’t always play along and answer the questions and keep the awards going and I apologize if I’ve hurt anyone’s feelings, it’s just that I get uncomfortable having to nominate others because I might leave someone out that I really like and sometimes I want to nominate more than what is allowed and frankly, I just don’t like to follow the rules. I know, but that’s just me. It doesn’t change the fact that I do appreciate being nominated and I love the fact that you guys come here to read my nonsensical crazy nattering.
There’s a point here, I promise.
There are a few blogs out there that I read every single day. Regardless of where I am or what I’m doing, if I have access to the Internets, I read them. I do read Hungry Runner Girl and Run Eat Repeat but these other blogs are my absolute favorites and by some stroke of nature, I found them.
I’m telling you about these blogs NOT because I’m nominating them for any awards or anything but just because I truly enjoy them and I think you will too. If you have a few moments, check them out and let me know what you think. They’re UpandHumming approved….like that means anything, ha!
It’s a Dog Lick Baby World – I’ve been stalking Kara for about a year and she is hilarious. She’s a wife and Mom and smart as shit. One of the main reasons I love her blog is you never really know what she’s going to write about from day-to-day, but you can be sure it will crack you up, hysterically. She doesn’t really hold anything back and always tells it like it is.
Milf Runner – I’ve been stalking Milf for about a year as well. She’s also hilarious. She lives somewhere in California and has like forty kids or something . She’s just undergone some major surgery but her posts about her recovery are classic. The only issue I have with Milf is she doesn’t update enough. What? Like she has no time with her 47 kids or whatever, please.
Run Dog Cat Cat ME – Terri is an amazing writer and quite frankly I think she should write novels. She draws you in and then before you know it, the story is over and you’re left wanting more.
Running Off The Reeses – Cely is a Texan but we’ll forgive her for that. She’s funny, smart, witty and loves to eat, drink beer and read books, oh and she runs. She also has a pug named Bardot, seriously. How could you not love this girl?
T Rex Runner – Danielle is a Marathon Maniac though she’s currently injured. She is as witty as all get out and honest as the day is long. She makes you feel like she’s your best friend and once you start reading her blog you’ll be hooked.
Catastrophy Wife – Fucking hilarious. That’s it. Read it.
Picking Up a Hitchhiker – Iram is a divorced father with a beautiful little girl. He has brain cancer and he runs marathons. He also wins occasionally, once while pushing his daughter in her stroller!. His blog is raw and uncensored and sometimes when I’m reading I flinch because I don’t want him to be so exposed, but I respect his opinions and his truths. None of us really know how we would react unless we were to actually living Iram’s life but his blog takes you as close as you can get.
Roserunner – Roserunner is a lawyer and a very talented runner. She’s very direct and somewhat sarcastic and I find her irresistible.
Shut up and Run – If I lived near Beth, we’d be best friends. That’s all.
