I was recently tagged in the #GirlLove Challenge by a blogger who I admire and enjoy reading very much, Pearls Before Swine. I think it is an awesome challenge, and I decided to participate in it myself. I think it is great to have challenges such as these, that we can help uplift and empower one another in the blogging world. Each of the people I will be honoring today has something different to offer me as I read their blogs every day. So, here are my top 5 favorite blogs:
Pearls Before Swine
I couldn’t do this challenge without honoring this lady. She is definitely an awesome blogger to me! I love reading her blog because most times, I usually find something I can relate to. I feel like we are somewhat of the same person, but yet I want to learn so much from her. I was very grateful for her to mention me in her #GirlLove challenge post, so I felt it only necessary to mention her as well, because she definitely shows love and is a great person from what I have seen so far.
I just recently started following Quixoticmuses, and I feel like her blog will be one that I will enjoy reading from here on out! I love a good short story, and I recently bought her book (which is a great read also, highly recommended). I always try to support fellow authors and she is definitely one that I see will go pretty far! 🙂
Brown Book and Green Tea
I also just recently started following this young lady’s blog as well, mainly because we love 2 of the same things, Green Tea and books! Lol, I will admit that her title alone drew me to her blog and I knew I would be following as soon as I saw it. Being a book lover myself, I am always looking for a new book to read (as if I need anymore lol), and her blog is a great place to go for book reviews, and also reviews on some good tea! 🙂
Did I mention she is super cool, because we share the same name?! Lol. 🙂
Black Millenials is what I like to call my “no filter” blog. She speaks for the 20-somethings in this world that might be a little complex than most. When I read her “About Us” page, this was my favorite statement: “We can love the classic art of hip hop while turnin up at the club. We can read and internalize the works of James Baldwin while we glimpse at an episode of Empire.” I immediately thought “Oh snap! This is me!” Lol. For that, I make sure I visit her blog regularly to see what she has to say on the world’s most controversial topics to date.
I am not sure what to say about this blogger, except that I think she is an exceptional writer and poet, and I would love to see her perform either a poem, play, or anything one day! I look at her accomplishments and hope to one day have that type of success. She is just an awesome woman and blogger all around from what I can see; and I’m a poetry lover, so when I saw she wrote poetry, I was already clicking the follow button! Lol. She also has several books published, that I have on my list to buy this year :)…
Overall, I enjoy each one of these ladies and what they bring to my blog life. I think having all 5 of these ladies in the same room, would prove to be a very uplifting and enlightening experience for all parties involved!
Now, for all of you all that would like to participate, here are the rules for the #GirlLove Challenge:
- Tell your followers who inspire you, a famous woman who may be dealing with negativity on a daily basis.
- Tell your followers who inspire you in real life, a woman you always interact with.
- Tag five women bloggers who you love. Compliment them and tell them why you love them, and comment under their latest post with the link to your #GirlLove post!
If you get tagged, do the post on your own blog. If you want to do it anyway, do it anyway! Add the tag ‘Girl Love’ to your post, so we can see them all! Let’s start 2016 with LOVE for each other!
