My Favourite Things is a precursor to TC’s Treasures. Starting in November 2016, all My Favourite Things posts will be known as TC’s Treasures.
Happy May, everyone! Here’s another round of “My Favourite Things“, an amazing blog link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene. My favourites this month will focus on some of my favourite blogs, and here’s why . . .
From August 2011 to March 2014, I was trapped in a world known as post-graduate (aka grad school) school. I chose to do an online programme that had me hang out on Angel and Blackboard nearly 24/7, participate in online discussion with people primarily in US time zones, read scholarly articles that gave me headaches, and write research papers with a super annoying citation system called APA instead of MLA. In other words, this programme took over my life, and it affected my online fandom and blogging life. Upon completing my capstone project (affectionately named the “Crapstone Project”), I was burnt out, and it took me about eight months to recuperate and gather my mental energies to fully focus on expanding my blogging network. As for my fandom life, I’ve mostly become a lurker, so I’m not sure when I’ll be completely active again. But for now, I’m enjoying my blogging adventures, enjoying my time meeting new bloggers, and keeping up with the “old” bloggers I’ve known for years. I’ve really been more active than ever, so that’s why I decided to feature my favourite blogs for this month.
Cat blogs at Silent White. She focuses on multiple topics ranging from gaming to photography to home decor to cooking and baking to travelling. Cat’s been a friend for many years now, and it’s always been a joy to read and follow her blog. :D
Georgie blogs at Hey Georgie. Georgie is another blogger I’ve followed for years, and I really adore her fashion posts in particular. I’m not big on fashion, but Georgie has an impeccable taste that greatly appeals to me. She’s especially good at accessorising, and I’m always amazed how she can combine jewelleries to create a great look!
Kya blogs at Kya.nu. Kya is a blogger I’ve only recently began to follow, and I now wished I’d followed her blog longer. One thing I love about her blog is how she has other contents, like blogging inspirations, domain name inspirations, and etcetera. She also writes thoughtful entries and gives her readers to leave meaningful comments by asking questions at the end of her entries.
Nancy blogs at Colorfulistic. Nancy is another blogger I’ve known for a while, and I remember feeling a sense of kinship with her blog when I read that she was also in band! Unlike her, I’ve no experience with marching band, but I enjoyed reading about her band adventures, and now I enjoy her foodie posts and her college entries. Reading her college entries do make me miss and not miss my own college days!
Raisa blogs at Little Town. Raisa is someone I’ve started following on and off in mid-2014, but it wasn’t until around September or so I really began to get into her blog. Her beautifully designed layouts and her sharing posts are what got me to really enjoy her blog. From apps to themes to programmes — she drew me in. But it’s the “My Favourite Things” link-up that really captured my attention!
Tiffany blogs at Tiffany Bee. Tiffany is another blogger I’ve recently began to follow, and I’m so glad I do! She posts the most amazing recipes and food posts, and I love her photos! They are so pretty and eye-catching :D Really, if you want to eat healthy and even make bread out of fruit pulps (of which I’d no idea such a thing was possible!), then read Tiffany’s blog.
Finally, my last favourite is the site I’m using to keep track of all the blogs I’m following. I find Bloglovin’ to be better than using an RSS reader like Feedly. I prefer Feedly to following news sites, so it helps to keep them separate for me :) Thank you Bloglovin’!
And that’s all, folks! What are your favourite blogs or bloggers? Who have you followed for the longest? Let me know!
