The Best of 2014 will be a series of posts all this week in which I talk about different topics related to blogging. This will be the first post in the series in which I tell y’all about the best bloggers I know and have interacted with over the course of 2014. There won’t be any order. I’d said that I would include 10 bloggers, but that’s not going to happen. I couldn’t come up with 10. I settled with eight bloggers I think you all should check out. Let’s start.
Amy – Inkcouragement
Hers was actually the first name I wrote down on my notepad right now as I sat down to write this post. And she was definitely one of the first bloggers to come to mind when I first thought of writing this. She writes about all things writing. And can offer some great writing advice if you’re in need of some. AND she’s the only blogger I’ve ever allowed to guest post here. Couldn’t leave her off the list.
Aly – ILikeBooksTooMuch
Another super easy choice. First off, she’s hilarious. I think I laugh at almost every one of her posts. She reads a ton of books every year. And I know eventually is going to write some great ones. Still waiting for you to finish your book, Aly! And I kind of gave her a nickname. But I’m not telling what it is. And she’s a gamer. Like when does that happen? Oh, and she’s easily the most entertaining person I’m friends with on SnapChat. All great things.
Meg – Meg Writes Stuff
She writes 100 word stories on her blog. And in those 100 words you are guaranteed to be thoroughly entertained. AND she just won a major writing competition! She’s famous. Like no joke. So now I’m more of a fan than anything.
Jess – Like Star Filled Skies
These first four have all been easy choices. Jess has written like 82134 books and she’s only 23. Do you realize what that means? She was born writing. And she paints too! Can you say artistic? Cause this girl is the definition. You should read her blog because her flash fiction is as good as any fiction I’ve come across on WordPress. And her posts are always interesting.
Hilarious. Her posts are full of sarcasm and humor and she consistently posts just about everyday. Until now. She’s on a break until early next year, but if you haven’t read her posts before, then you can just scroll through her archives. She doesn’t post about writing or books as much as some other bloggers on this list, but every post is usually short and entertaining. Oh! And she very rarely makes YouTube videos. Her voice. Oh my goodness. Y’all have no idea. It’s perfection.
Crystal – Writer’s Bounty
Simply put, she writes the best poetry that I read on WordPress. And I usually read a lot. Whenever I post a poem I’ve written I’m always just kind of hoping that she’ll think it’s written okay. But shhh, she doesn’t know that.
John – Get Off my Lawn
His posts are pretty random. But this guy is witty, sarcastic, and hilarious. Like the other bloggers I’ve mentioned are pretty funny people, but he’s on another level. I’ll comment on one of his posts or he’ll comment on one of mine and I’ll just be laughing uncontrollably for a few minutes. Just check out his blog. You’re missing out until you do.
Autumn – BrownEyedGirlDotCom
Just an all around blogger. She’s posted poetry, random real-life stories (I think), and writing questions. What more do you want? She’s the only blogger on the list to have two blogs I like, so she gets two links. Her name is one link and her blog is the other.
So that’s it! The best bloggers I’ve interacted with over the course of 2014! I focused on them in my brief descriptions, but every one of them has also been around my blog quite a bit. Go check them out!
