It’s Friday, which is the perfect time to do a roundup of links from some of my friends in the blogosphere. I encourage you all to check out these posts and the folks who wrote them.
I’ll try to do posts like this on a more regular basis, with some kind of theme for each one.
Today, I hand Primility.com over to the fairer and wiser gender. Trust me, we’re all be better off for it.
She Ordered What?
The basic idea: people let their servers choose their meal and then blog about it. I even got into the act with this post, which recapped a tremendously fun and memorable evening.
The Fashionable, Fit Traveler
She provides great fashion tips – and looks incredibly cute doing so – and also delectable and detailed recipes like Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Meatballs and Homemade Sauce.
A unique blogging voice that I have recently become acquainted with is Genesis Meranda Lee (@GenesisMeranda) and her eponymous blog that you can, and should, read here, which just passed a very impressive traffic milestone!
Small Hands, Big Ideas
Grace Boyle (@GraceKBoyle) is a longtime favorite of mine, this inspiring young woman whose small hands cannot come close to holding her plethora of big ideas keeps churning out wonderfully enlightening blog posts based on her personal experiences.
Make sure you read her classics like The “I Can Do Anything,” Freedom In Your 20s and my personal favorite of hers: Comparing The Eras: Where People Wrote Letters and When They Did Not.
This link I provide to hopefully help encourage a promising blogger with an essential voice and message, plus an amazing current mission, to blog more.
She wrote this introspective and thought-provoking post about the importance of giving back on February 10th of 2012 and hasn’t written since. That’s a shame.
I met Kimber first through Midwest Sports Fans where she wrote the terrific Blogging Fitness series. You should definitely catch up on the archive if you missed it.
One of the best, brightest, and most essential female voices in the sports world belongs to Chicagoan Sarah Spain (@SarahSpain).
A League of Her Own
And while we’re on the subject of essential female voices in the sports world with Chicago ties…allow me to introduce you to Julie DiCaro (@JulieDiCaro), who runs the A League of Her Own blog for Aerys Sports. She is also highly engaging follow on Twitter as well.
Though Julie and I are far friendlier during college basketball season (when our rooting interests are perfectly in line – Go IU!), than during baseball season (when our rooting interests are diametrically split – Go Sox!), hers is always a valued and candid online perspective on a variety of subjects.
Pro tip: if you are a fan of the Green Bay Packers, you will really want to follow Amanda. You’ll get along great!
* – Amanda is listed last here as a penalty for choosing the Twins to be her favorite baseball. All things considered, it seems fitting, no?
Now it’s your turn. What women with unique online perspectives do you want to highlight? The comment section is yours. Enlighten us all.
