I'm still learning but I have enjoyed reading Jen's blog's.
I love the way she writes.

I like this particular blogger by the name of "teenybikini" (unsure of the spelling). She writes masterpieces and seriously needs to go pro. And she only seems to write on a once a month basis so it's a real treat when you read them.

I read my friends' blogs and then go through my teams and read the ones where the title jumps out at me.

I try to stick with my friends' blogs, and I feel like I should make more time to read through more of them.

Can I shamelessly promote my own blogs? :p Kidding.

I thought it would be a good opportunity to ask for any feedback though? I've been doing a "Heartbroken" series which reflects on lessons learned about self through heartbreak. (When guys/girls upset us, what can we take from it that's productive?)

Blog #4 relates most specifically to weight loss.

I don't actually want to self-promote but I would genuinely appreciate feedback so if you have the time and/or interest, I'd love any comments. I tried to keep the posts relatively (??) short. ;)

Thanks guys!

And I love reading everyone's blogs. I try to do some random now and then too because I know it is easy to keep focusing on the popular ones... well, yea, because they are popular for a reason! hehehe ;) Some blogs out there are killer awesome! THANKS for BLOGGING/VLOGGING to everyone! :D

I do my best to always read my friends blogs, but I love reading JENNSWIMS blogs. They're funny, well written, and/or very inspirational.

Awwwww, thanks Jenn!!

I like to go down my Team Streams and read ones that catch my eye. Blogs I always read are GREENAPPLES19, WADINGMOOSE, SARAMOUSY, and a few others.

But my favorite is JENNSWIMS. She has a way of looking at things and describing stuff that makes me laugh while also being very motivating. Actually, I kinda check all day to see if she has written a blog yet!

I actually read yours Lulu. But generally I just hit up my friend feed and see what I can find. Between my friends' blogs and the blogs my friends comment on, I have plenty to read! I need to comment more often...

I like to read the ones that pop up on the scrolling blog/huddle section. Some catch my eye some don't. But I try to read what I can. You never know what you are going to get with someone's blog.

Reading this made me think of an old thread. I found it and pasted the link here for everyone. It is also a "Sticky" thread for the time being.

Honestly, I mainly try to get all my friends blogs. I can't get them all all the time, but I try to.

Mostly I get my motivation from encouraging my sparkfriends on their journey. Encouraging them to be all they can. Then I turn around and kick my own butt to get out there and do my thing. It seems to be working.

But I'll be watching this post too. See if anything new and interesting pops up.

Who are some of the sparkers you follow / are friends with who write blogs you love to read?

I always check the popular blog posts, but it tends to usually be the same few people over and over again. I'm sure there are some awesome bloggers out there who just don't have the 4,000 friends to make them a popular blogger but would still be really motivating!!!

Who writes your favorites?
