I’m a poor and lazy blogger. I do not blog to make money, I don’t worry about SEO, I certainly don’t blog to become famous, I don’t blog on a regular basis, I’m not into taking photos and I hate sorting through super spammy comments that some idiots leave …really I just blog when something comes to mind that I want to share with others. I know that it could be better and maybe that will change in the future. But for now, it is what it is.
So, when I come across other bloggers that are really putting their heart and soul into it and I like what they have to say, then my total respect shines through for these people. I usually spend the entire morning pouring over their words, clicking through on their links, (even if I don’t buy the product,) and occasionally leaving a kind and encouraging product. It’s tough to make money blogging and I want to give them all of the kudos that I can. So, with that in mind, here are a few of my favorite blogs for 2020:
Small Footprint Family – Blogger, Dawn Gifford, has done a great job in organizing her blog. She hits on all of the topics that are near and dear to my heart such as environmental issues, home thriftiness, and lots of yummy, make-from-scratch recipes. I have not read her book yet, but it’s on my list of things to do. From one, “back-to-the-lander,” to another, Thanks Dawn.
Don’t Waste The Crumbs – I’m impressed with anyone that can save enough money through careful shopping and budgeting to by a beautiful house for cash. Yeah…as in NO house payment.
She has some great tips on how cut the spending and I loved that she and her family did a, “30-day no shopping for food,” challenge. I learned a lot from her posts and I’m sending her link over to my kids with hopes that they will appreciate the pointers on saving vs. spending. She has a boot camp which I just may enroll my daughter in.
Full of Plants – This blog was started by a teen, Thomas, who had some severe acne and bloating problems. He wanted to solve them by giving up animal products and yes, going vegan worked! Now he has a blog in hopes of sharing his recipes and helping others. I admire the youthful enthusiasm of Thomas. His blog is very good and informative, with hard to find recipes and he has a nice collection of curated products that are worth a look-see.
Fermentation Recipes – This is a good, informative blog on anything that has to do with fermentation of foods. There’s lots of recipes, including some unusual ones like Fermented Curtido, (hummm…what’s that?) and Cardamom Squash Sauerkraut. There are lots of how-tos and information on the art of fermenting, as well as a nice shop for tools and ingredients. I’m not exactly sure who writes this blog, but its worth a look non the less.
