Today’s Top Ten Tuesday was a freebie so I decided to branch out a bit and talk about some amazing blogs that inspire me to try and be a better blogger.
I have been following Jamie’s blog for years and I am constantly impressed by everything she does. Her creativity knows no bounds. I really want to try and bring some more personal posts to my blog like she does. I’d also like to create just one feature as awesome as all of hers. I love her Save The Date posts, If We Were Having Coffee posts, and of course Top Ten Tuesday.
Where do I even begin with Rachel’s blog? I adore everything about it but I think it’s her support for debut authors that really impresses me. I always attempt to participate in debut challenges but Rachel just takes it above and beyond. It also doesn’t hurt that she has awesome discussions on her blog. I want to be able to come up with great discussion topics like she does.

Hafsah is a blogger that I have followed since the very beginning and over the years the things she has done with her blog have shocked and impressed me. She is always coming up with creative new features and her Waiting on Wednesday posts always manage to feature books that I know nothing about. Also, she has an amazing design site and yet she still manages to keep up her blog. That takes dedication.
Lisa and Becca are both amazing bloggers and Instagrammers. I don’t know how they both manage to read so many books but it seems like they are always posting about the hottest new releases. I love that their reviews are written in a more informal style and invite readers to chat about them in the comments. I really want to open discussions in my comments like they do.
Hannah is the blog tour queen! She runs Irish Banana Blog Tours and she participates in a ton of the blog tours that she puts together. I have no clue how she does it. I also really want her to do my makeup. She has incredible taste in makeup and I love how she incorporates it into her blog. I’d love to figure out how to incorporate some of my other loves into my blog.
Cuddlebuggery manages to post all the things! They post reviews, TV reviews, bookish news, and so much more. Not only that, they might post some of the snarkiest, funniest posts ever! The amount of personality in one blog seriously blows my mind.
Crystal and Jenna impressed me long before they got together and created Bookiemoji but I can’t tell you how excited I became when two of my favorite bloggers got together and created one epic blog. Their use of GIFs is just plain perfect and I love how their reviews include just enough info to entice me without feeling like too much. One day I hope to find someone I connect with as much as Jenna and Crystal do.
I can’t tell you how many recommendations I have gotten from this blog. I might be partial to it because we seem to like a lot of the same books but that’s not the only reason. Their graphics are gorgeous and their posts are always fresh and quick reads. They don’t just post reviews but they also don’t just post memes. There is the perfect mix of posts and I admit that I haven’t yet found that perfect mix for my blog but I’m working on it.
Lego Cover Art. What more do I need to say? Seriously, though. How creative and fun is that? Kristen is incredibly nice and she also posts a ton of interviews, something I don’t think there are enough of these days. I’m also seriously impressed by her interview questions. They are so thoughtful and I always end up learning new things from her posts.
Last but definitely not least I have to give a shoutout to Aneeqah. Her discussion posts are amazing and insightful and give me all the thoughts. Her recent post about book bloggers making money sparked quite the discussion and I want to be able to do that with my discussion posts. And to top it all off, she’s applying for colleges. I don’t know how she manages it all but she does. I need to take a page out of her book!
