Hi friends! So I know we allll love reading blogs, right? Yes? That's why we're here! But sometimes it's easy to get stuck in our own little bubble of blogs that we read and assume that that's all there is out there. But seriously, that is so wrong! I know I find new blogs all the time and as soon as I find them, I decide that they're my new favorite and I stalk all the archives!
#1 The 'Explore' Tab on Bloglovin'
This section on Bloglovin' shows top posts that you may be interested in. I'm not sure if this is tailored for you or just general top posts on Bloglovin' but generally there's something interesting to be found there. You can also sort through the posts by topics--like Beauty, Home Decor, Fashion, etc. I tend to peek through the 'Lifestyle' and 'Other' categories a few times a week.
#2 Featured Links Posts
Quite a few bloggers these days (myself included!) like to post collections of favorite links from other blogs. On my blog, these posts are called Curated--you can look through them here! Here's my recommendation: if you see a post that sounds interesting, check it out. If you enjoy that post, take a few minutes and peek around that blog. You might like it! I've found a lot of new blogs that way. A few other bloggers that have link style posts: Yes and Yes, Kory Woodard, and Ember + March.
#3 Group Boards on Pinterest
There are tons of group boards on Pinterest that are geared either towards bloggers to pin their own posts or where pinners collect blog posts that they enjoy. Either way, they're a great resource to use to browse through posts by looking at pictures, instead of just text, which can be a nice change!
#4 Ask your favorite bloggers
Chances are, anyone you know who writes a blog also reads blogs. If you shoot them an email, they'll probably have a few recommendations for you. They may even have a blogroll page like I do, listing out all of the blogs they read regularly! You can also make sure to check out any advertisements and sponsors they have on their sidebars or in posts. Chances are, these sponsors are blogs that are similar to the one you're reading--you just might love them!
And in case you needed a few more blogs to explore, a few friends of mine and I have put together a blog scavenger hunt to help you read some new blogs!
To enter, follow the instructions for each entry. This may mean following a blogger on social media and it may mean visiting their blog and answering a short, easy question. Have fun!
Thank you all so much for entering and supporting Call Me Sassafras. I hope you've found some fun, new favorite blogs! Share your favorite blogs in the comments!
