Over the last three years, my blog reader has had a lot of changes made to it. I’ve cleaned out lots of dormant blogs. And every once in a while, I go blog shopping.
I recently noticed that my reader was a little…unbalanced.
It seemed my reading slanted quite heavily toward the more testosterone oriented. There were actually very few women that I was subscribed to.
I didn’t make this conscious choice. I just have had a hard time finding women that are writing things that I’m interested in.
But on my latest blog shopping spree, I decided to correct this. I could forgive an occasional post about crafts or baking if the rest of the blog was really melting faces and punching kidneys.
So, here they are. The ladies who are rocking my blog reader these days.
How to Talk Evangelical
Addie Zierman’s blog is one after my own heart. She’s an introvert in a decidedly extrovert-oriented Christian culture. And she has little patience for Christian-speak, even such sacred cows as “doing life together.” I wish I had written it.
Another great post about a Christian cliche. We all want to be “missional,” right? Because who doesn’t like being someone else’s pet project? Lots of good stuff here.
I guess you could consider Nish Weiseth a “mom blogger.” She is a mom. She writes a blog. But I don’t put mom bloggers in my reader, so she can’t be a “mom blogger.” And if you don’t buy that logic, too bad. She writes good stuff on her blog, and at A Deeper Story.
Yeah, Ally had a blog last year. This is kind of a new one. And she and her handsome hubs, Darrell run Prodigal Magazine, which I write for. And Darrell and I collaborate on a lot of stuff. But that doesn’t really matter. Ally’s writing is solid stuff.
Of course, my list wouldn’t be complete without the ladies who have long graced my reader. Nicole’s Modern Reject has long been one of my favorites, for her no-bullcrap attitude. Jamie too. I’m waiting with bated breath to see what becomes of the very worst missionary. I was star-struck last year, getting to meet her and El Chupacabra at the Bloggers Meetup in Atlanta. Tamara continues to get in my face. And Alece provides more inspiration and encouragement than I can handle.
That’s it right now. I’d love to find more. But here’s what I want to know. If you’re a guy, I want your favorite female bloggers. Ladies, tell me what dudes you’re reading these days.
I’m taking Wednesday off to celebrate America by eating meat and blowing stuff up, but I’ll see you back here on Friday.
