For this post I was asked to write about 5 fabulous bloggers. Yay, sponsored post! (mama needs to pay her hosting bill somehow) Boo, having to pick only 5. I struggled with deciding. I just had to pick people for the Modern Bird interview. Now, I am picking people again. There are a few ways to go about it: pick my friends, pick people I want to pay attention to me, pick my old favorite blogs, pick my new favorite blogs, pick my favorite twitter people who happen to have blogs. Ugh. So, I decided to make it meme based. Seriously. I do not know what is wrong with me. And I still didn’t manage to keep it to 5.

Style Posts: I haven’t made a big secret of not loving the who mom-blogger style business. And now that Dooce is doing it, I fear it will never end. But, you know who can say she was doing it long before Dooce? Emily Bilbrey, that’s who. Admittedly, she didn’t invent the style post, but hers may be the most adorable I have ever seen. She combines vintage clothes with new finds for herself and her daughter for a look that is, wait for it, fabulous.

Wordless Wednesday: The Wordless Wednesday I look forward to the most each week is Kristi’s at live and love…out loud. She mixes things up with close-up guessing games, family portraits, breathtaking landscapes and the occasional wordful wednesday. She tirelessly visits other blogs and leaves insightful or funny comments on their WW posts, never phones it in with a “Nice Shot!” or “Cute Pose!” And she is delightful on other days of the week, too. She recently started a small business focus on women run business and a spotlight of a terrific mom blogger. Add all of these things up and you get a caring, supportive and, dare I say it, fabulous blogger.

Week in Phone Pictures: This is one of my new favorite memes on the block. It was started by the delightful Emmie Bee and the pictures of her now 2 (2!) year old and her sweet twinstars are pure joy. But, she is a little inconsistent with her posting. It might be having three kids 2 and under. Or, you know, she is just lazy. (I kid) (Obviously)

The two bloggers I really have to hand it to here are Suzanne and Amy. They took this thing an ran with it. I love Suzanne for her adventures and hilarious captions and Amy’s posts are simple so well done. She does amazing little collages for each day of the week. Amy has hosted the linky every week for the last 10 and Suzanne has an amazing commitment to this one, posting every week of the last 12 including the week she popped out her latest addition, Caroline, and before that she posted this meme from a hospital bed. That is commitment.

Project365: I love project 365s, the . My two current favorites are Eileen of Bringing Up Bronwyn‘s project365 tumblr and Natalie of and then there were four‘s tumblr. They are delightful and fabulous bloggers on their personal blogs, but also a treat on their tumblrs. With a commitment to the project and sometimes (Eileen) and always (Natalie) link up to my outtakes linky, I look forward to their pictures every single day.

    I love being included on your list, but even better is finding a new blog I DON’T follow so I have someone else to stalk! I mean read! No, I mean stalk.
