When you have friends that blog, you get a whole new perspective on them. You get to see inside their mind and read about what interests them, so the next time you talk you have even more to talk about. I am fortunate to have a bunch of creative friends, four of which also happen to be bloggers:
1. Jenny @ Mish Mosh Makeup
I met Jenny through our marvelous time spent working at Borders (may it rest in peace). She’s pretty much my favorite person and we spend a lot of time on Google Chat sharing funny imgur links and talking about… well, blogging, among other things. I like to throw ideas at her and I’ve gotten a lot of really good advice from her in the past. We’ve got a great thing going. She is a beauty blogger and has some really good advice that helps people like me feel like makeup and beautification is more accessible.
2. Mike @ The Exif Files
I spend a lot of time with this guy. He’s taught me a lot about photography and I would have never switched to manual mode without his help. If you plan on attending LOST 2017, you can take one of his classes. He shares a lot of insights about photography on his blog, so feel free to pick his brain on there.
3. Kayla @ Mountain Gypsy
I met Kayla when I was attending Marshall for journalism. Since I am kind of introverted in real life, I didn’t get to know her very well outside of class. Now that I’ve re-met her online, I’ve found that we have a lot of similarities. Her blog is all about her gypsy life, which usually leaves me wanting to do some yoga or write more insightful blogs (aka be a better person).
4. Mel @ Moleguin Cooks
Mel is another Borders friend — we worked in the back room together. Mel and her husband made many overnight shifts more bearable through hysterical laughter and impassioned sing-alongs. She is a foodie to the core and blogs about her culinary adventures in Savannah. Her posts are simply drool-worthy.
Do any of your friends blog? Does blogging ever leak into your conversations?
