This wasn’t easy.

I follow a lot of blogs. Though, I will admit, I have a few favorites. Some have been must-reads forever, some go in cycles, and some are new finds. As I’ve mentioned, Inspired by Charm is going to have a completely new look in a few months. Part of the preparation has required me to compile a blogroll. Over the past couple weeks, as I’ve gone through my Google Reader (what I use to organize and follow blogs), I’ve been adding favorites to my list. Again, this wasn’t easy. 

Because it’s been a long time since I shared any blogs that have really inspired me or made me happy, I decided today would be a perfect day to do so. This is in no way a complete list. It’s just a few favorites that are on my mind today. If any of these blogs are new to you, I hope you will take some time to check them out. Enjoy!

I also wanted to thank you so much for your words of encouragement and blues-busting ideas yesterday! It means so much to me!

Also, a reminder that I still need your questions for the Ask Me video I am planning. You can read all about that here. The more questions the better!

Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend!

This is the 11th post in my 31 Days of Happiness Series.
