I am so excited to write this. I had quite a difficult time selecting just 6 posts but know —you all writers out there are mega amazing. These are my faves that put a huge smile on my face in between a hectic week. The last two months was quite something for me, with each day it seemed like I am getting busier so it took a lot out of me to stay on schedule. My respect for the bloggers that publish a blog post every day is on another level —because I know just how hard it is to do that. From creative slum, writer blocks to maintaining a blog —it is a full-time job. There I said it. It’s legit so much work.
This is an appreciation post for all you wonderful bloggers that blessed me with different topics to read about every week. You kept me sane. For that I thank you! If you are wondering what to read and somehow fiction isn’t cutting it —please clear your weekend, enjoy these posts and maybe snoop around their page to gift yourself with relatable reading material. Grab a coffee or tea and let’s get on with it.
