May 27: Share a blog that you enjoy reading

The blogs I like to read most teach me nothing.

They don't tell me how to cook, clean, work, parent, eat clean, knit, grow herbs, quit sugar, run a marathon, wear fashionable clothes or ride a horse.

I do read lots of those too, but the ones I always go back to and never miss are just everyday people living everyday lives and doing stuff. I like to read their stories. I feel like they are friends in a creepy, never going to meet them, kind of way.

If you want to box them in with a label than they would be Personal bloggers or the "I have no niche bloggers".

If you don't know Mel from Coal Valley View you should pop over and say hello.

She blogs about her life in Tasmania with her five kids. She knits, she farms, she parents, she writes, she takes photos and some times she is in the local news regarding a huge project that I am watching quietly on the sidelines because it looks so fabulous.





So go on clickity click over to Mel's blog and say hello

Or see her on Instagram to just keep up with her wonderful photography.








What's another blog that you enjoy reading...I could really write quite a list, but love finding new ones.

  2. I'm with you, my favourite ones aren't how-to or ones that teach me anything, the are personal bloggers, a bit like you!!! I'll pop over and have a look - just wondering, were you still hosting the linky? Or not anymore - just I can't see it! x

  3. Oh gosh there are so many blogs I enjoy reading (your's being one of them). It's hard to pick just one.
    One of the blogs I enjoyed, she has stopped blogging, which is sad, but sometimes that happens. Off to go view your recommendation.

  4. I like Mel's blog too, if only because she's so darn likeable.

  5. I was naughty and couldn't cull a list. I'm not very decisive. I already want to go back and change mine!!! I have loved reading all your blogs, ladies! What a nice way to spend May! Kids, knitting and Tassie... sounds like it will be worth adding to my list!

  6. I had the good fortune of meeting Mel in person (at the 2013 Kidspot event, funnily enough) and she is beautiful and warm and every bit as lovely as she comes across on her blog. I find her dedication to mothering absolutely inspiring x

  7. I find time at the computer so limited and precious that I don't follow many blogs regularly. Actually I guess it's like 'the last book you read' - I don't make the time. But I have really enjoyed discovering the blogs involved in this May challenge and am looking forward to checking out the links being shared!

  8. Oh wow! What a lovely surprise - thanks so much Claire!!! It was irking me that I didn't have a niche but after reading this I think I may just embrace my non-nicheness :-) I too prefer reading personal blogs that don't teach me anything.....and I do hope we get to meet up sometime, that would be FUN! xxx

  9. I love finding new blogs, that's why I'm so happy I found yours! I liken blog reading like falling down a hole in Alice in Wonderland, once you start, it's hard to stop and there's always something new and enlightening to find! Like you, I love those "no niche" blogs best of all. I think it's because I'm naturally nosey and love looking through the virtual window into other people's lives. It's fun and it's fascinating! Will check out Mel's blog for sure, thanks for the top tip. Other blogs on my roll include My Little Drummer Boys, From the Ashers and Mama Marmalade. Always crackin' reads. I'm adding your blog to the list and I am thrilled to have found someone who shares my love of exclamation marks and hatred of camping!
