Beyond the Books ~ Blogs I Read and Like


Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted by Karen @ KissinBlueKaren. Each week features a new topic (mostly non-bookish). This meme is a fun, social weekly post.

This Week’s Topic:

Blogs you read daily. Maybe include why. People love shout-outs!


Let me be real…I don’t read blogs daily. I am doing good right now to make it around to everyone’s Sunday Posts an Top Ten Tuesday lists each week, which is usually happening strictly on the weekends. I do love keeping up with certain folks, though. I have built some great blogships (blog friendships) with some really great gals.

Berls & Michelle @ Because Reading is better than real life is one of the blogs I love checking in on each week. Recently (like in the last six months-ish, I think?) Michelle kidnapped Berls and to be her co-blogger because Berls was going to give up blogging. I would have been so sad! I have followed this blog and these ladies pretty religiously since I discovered them. Berls teaches Kindergarten and Michelle runs her own design business, Limabean Designs.

A newer-ish blog I discovered has been Nick and Nereyda’s Infinite Booklist. I love keeping up with these ladies and their lives, and Nereyda is the one who pushed and pushed and made me take the plunge to try a bullet journal. She has a great series of bullet journal posts that I largely used to help me get off the ground with mine last year.

Karen @ KissinBlueKaren is also a blogger I enjoy keeping up with. She has so much going on and she has my kind of sarcastic humor that I love reading her posts each week about life.

Katherine @ I Wish I Lived In a Library is another lovely lady I love to follow! I love her top ten lists. She puts a lot of thought into them and they are amazing! I always want to see what she’s said, no matter what the topic.


Upcoming Prompts:

February 22– Kids and Social Media (your rules, what you think about it, is it changing our kids for the better, etc)

  1. Ugh! I completely forgot to add Because Reading and I Wish I Lived in a Library! Both those blogs I stalk as well. I get Nick and Nereyda in my email but I don’t read or interact with those girls as much as I probably should.
    Great list and thanks for including me! It is kinda cool to see that my sarcasm is something that comes across on my blog.

    • Oh, I love all these ladies! I had wanted to continue expanding and following more blogs, but I seriously can’t handle that right now, so I stick with my circle of folks I’ve kept up with for the last few years. I’m glad you might find some new peeps you like!
