Happy Bloggers

I wanted to thank Theresa from despising life is so passe for awarding my blog, even though I'm shamefully slow at doing it. I was pretty surprised since I've been feeling kind of sluggish and bored with the blog lately. Since starting my new job and the whole debacle of losing my html template I've just been lazy. I realize that I have barely written more than a sentence in the past few weeks and that makes it just a little bit worse since this was the outlet that I wanted to use to write for myself.
The stipulation of receiving the award is to state 10 things I like, but you know what I like already. That's the point of the blog. Derr.
Since rule breaking is fun I'm putting it to you, Bloggers I renominate for this recognition, how do YOU motivate yourself? What do you love about keeping up with a blog, even when life or self-doubt pulls you in another direction?What keeps you coming back for more?
1. Tess from Quintisentially Quirky, for her excellent writing and honesty. Lately I've really enjoyed her insights about living abroad in Scotland.
2. Jenny from FASHION MADE ME FUNKY. Not only does she make a recent reference to Sailor Moon, but she pointed out that our blogs could be sisters. Truth. Only hers is way cuter.
3. Amber Rose from Laughing With Broken Eyes because that girl knows how to capture a feeling. Plus she reminds me of myself at 18, only way more in touch with her feelings. Whenever she writes about her dad in the military overseas my eyes tear up, and I just want to hug her. I've never met her, but shes always in my prayers.
4. Fleur-de-lis (who's real name is a mystery to me), has a gorgeous blog dedicated to art and beauty. She's such a supportive blogger, and always takes the time to really read and appreciate others write.
5. Laura from A Daisy Chain Dream, who is inspiring in so many ways. She took a hiatus from blogging and now she's back and better than ever. I can't wait to see what kind of confectionary treats she makes, more of her crazy tights collection, and anything else she shares.
6. Kirstin at Crimson Rosella, I love her lady like looks and seeing what she comes up with while she's studying in Australia and dealing with the opposite seasons from her native Canada.
7. Sara from She is Sara, because I want to hang out with her! Her Michigan adventures, amazing style, Zooey Deschanel twin-ness, her adorable dog Louie. In my opinion the sign of a great lifestyle blog is wanting to hang with the writer.
8. Soph from Owl vs. Dove. Her blog is honestly one of the most inspiring I read. Do you know when you can't figure out what to wear in the morning and you just want someone to tell you what to do? Sometimes I pop onto her blog and look through her back entries for the answer.
9. Smash from milk teeths. I love her vintage looks because they aren't always girly, but sometimes more outdoorsy and comfortable looking. Her Etsy shop is pretty awesome too and California has never looked more enticing to me through a camera lens.
10. Ruta from Look Ugly in a Photograph. She takes vintage pieces that the average person might overlook and makes them look totally chic and "on trend," which is a sign of her creativity and eye for style. She just started a tumblr with some gorgeous stuff too!
