My Favorite Blogs Edition 1 – The Small Things Blog

Hello everyone!  I know… I’m here on a Wednesday!  Crazy, right?!  But I have the first edition of a special new series to share with you today, and I decided it deserved its own special time slot.

This series will be about my favorite bloggers and vloggers!  As much as I love writing my blog, I enjoy reading them to.  I have quite a few blogs that I follow regularly, and that I trust for having authentic content and providing a great read!

For those of my readers that don’t regularly follow other blogs, you should hop right over to Bloglovin’ and download their app!  (This post is not sponsored by Bloglovin, I just really love it!)

Bloglovin’ allows you to follow blogs and all of their posts will show up in a feed just like Facebook.  No more hopping from one website to another… all your favorite blogs are right there in one place!  Then as we go through this series, you will have some great suggestions for new bloggers to follow… don’t forget to follow me as well, my Bloglovin link is the heart in my right sidebar or you can click HERE!

Blogging is about the community, and I am thrilled to give a shout out to some of my favorite online ladies.  Here we go!

Kate Bryan from The Small Things Blog

I would hazard to guess that most of you have heard of Kate’s blog… or at the very least you have seen the back of her head on Pinterest!  For those of you who haven’t, you need to head over to her blog right away!

If asked to name my favorite blogger, I would have to give Kate the top spot!  She has a huge following, but still seems like the girl next door.  I love her relatable personality and dry sense of humor… her faith and family values make her uplifting to read and watch.

Kate began her career as a licensed hair stylist, developing her clientele in the Raleigh area.  She began looking for ways to teach her clients to style their hair at home, and decided to begin making YouTube videos for her clients to reference.  She posted them to Pinterest, and the rest is history!

Her hair tutorials are beautifully styled and easy to follow.  Not interested in hair tutorials?  No problem!  She offers useful, everyday information ranging from hair, beauty, fashion, recipes, parenting, blogging advice and she has two adorable little boys.

If you don’t know Kate, head on over and check out her site… in my book she’s truly an inspiring blogger!

She also has great social media accounts… her Instagram is worth following!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and come back next week for another Featured Blogger!  Feel free to comment with your favorite blog so we can all discover some great new reads!

  1. So agree about Kate – great reads but she seems like just a friend. Totally normal and down to earth. Looking forward to seeing your other favorites!
